Come learn about what it takes to successfully network, what tactics you can deploy and practice a few opening lines. Are you a scientist who would like to make the jump into the business world? Are you a young graduate who is looking into how to find your career path or someone who would like to make a career change?

Leading through the evening will be Dr. Annick Bay, Program Director at Advise Connect Inspire LLC who will draw from her own experience as well as from previous engagements on this topic with the Harvard Students, Spouses and Partners Association.
