Description

IMNIS welcomes you to "The Value of Networking" where you will hear from high profile industry leaders in the Energy and Minerals Resources sectors about the importance and value of networking. Learn about the unexpected benefits of networking as our expert panellists discuss and share their advice. Topics will include: how to network effectively, how to connect with a range of professionals in different settings, how developing an extensive network can help with career development, how to break into new networks, and how someone can ‘give back’ to their network.

This event will include breakfast networking sessions half an hour before and after the panel discussions (7.30-8.00am and 9.00-9.30am). All IMNIS mentors and mentees are encouraged to attend and connect in person at this event.
