Celebrate diversity in health and safety at #SHE1000
Today at Safety & Health Expo, a training and development session called #SHE1000 will be running to highlight the importance of networking and working a room.
Taking place from 13.45 – 15.00 today, Heather White, CEO, Smarter Networking, will be teaching hundreds of people the importance of quickly accessing knowledge and connections, and how to network effectively.
Heather explains: “One of the fastest ways and often the most reliable ways to gain knowledge and connections, is by reaching out to our networks and asking questions. One of the things I love most about networking is meeting new people (or re-establishing contact), learning about other people’s expertise and gaining access to new knowledge and connections.
“You might have heard that we have entered the ‘sharing economy’ – a socio-economic system built around the sharing of human, physical and intellectual resources – well, people who network do this all the time.
“We have to do away with old-fashioned notion that networking is nepotistic and superficial – it’s not true! Networking is important on so many levels – good networkers are genuine, authentic and actively changing the world.”
What skills do you need in order to be a great networker?
If you want to have some some outrageous fun whilst learning and meeting some amazing people, the come along to #SHE1000 at Safety & Health Expo.
It’s taking place today (23 June) from 13.45 – 15.00 in the IOSH lunch area within Safety & Health Expo.
