Networking Through Story with Dr Anna Ploszajski

10th January 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Sustainable Management of Marine Resources-Net are hosting Dr Anna Ploszajski who will run two half days of online training from 1pm on 10th January 2022 and 1pm on 31st January 2022. This event will be online and will also run alongside a month long networking event on SMMR/MASTS new networking site OPT (Ocean Partnership Tool).

Part 1: One half-day workshop on Networking Through Story the week of the 10th January 2023

In this workshop, award-winning materials scientist and storyteller Dr Anna Ploszajski will help you become a better networker through the study of story. We’ll cover an introduction to story, story structure, and think about the worlds & characters in our work. You’ll walk away with a draft of your ‘career story’, which you can use at networking events or conferences.

Part 2: One half-day follow-up Networking Skills workshop on 31st  January 2023

You’ll be expected to work up the story draft you wrote in Part 1 into a three-minute career story, and you’ll be paired with another workshop participant to help you. In this follow-up workshop, we’ll discuss the exercise, share stories in the wider group, and think about other networking skills based on your career story that you can build on. By the end of the two workshops, participants will walk away with the skills and knowledge they need to be more confident, concise and effective at networking.
