Kelly Hoey is a writer, investor, connector, and networking expert, lauded everywhere from Forbes (“1 of 5 Women Changing the World of VC/Entrepreneurship”) to Fast Company (“25 Smartest Women On Twitter”). In ‘BUILD YOUR DREAM NETWORK’, she reframes networking for the modern era, where everyone is posting, liking and friending fast and furious but failing to leverage their connections thoughtfully. However the reality is that whether landing a new client, new job, or a coveted board seat, most business and career problems today have networking solutions. Kelly will talk about mastering networking in the modern age, including a few of her signature tricks and best practices, and show how small changes to our daily routine, simple generosity, and goal-focused planning can lead to big opportunities.
“This fireside chat is ideal for bio-industry professionals seeking guidance on effectively cultivating meaningful connections. It’s a lot more than mingling at gatherings or sending LinkedIn invitations”, says Stephen Rapundalo, PhD, President and CEO, MichBio. “We’re excited that Kelly will be able to share her innovative insights on creating a knowledge network”.
Attendees with a background or interest in the bioscience industry and at all points in their career—from students to senior-level—will find value in this event. The goal is to engender meaningful interactions, spark friendships, business relationships, and career opportunities.
The Women Building Success in Biosciences event will be held at the Kensington Hotel on State Street beginning at 8:00am. A reception will follow at 10:00am. Different registration rates are available for MichBio members and nonmembers, and students. Attendees will receive a complimentary hard-cover copy of Kelly’s book, Build Your Dream Network: Forging Powerful Relationships in a Hyper-Connected World.
