Conferences and professional training events provide a great opportunity for networking with other professionals in your industry. New connections and collaborative partnerships can be made which can enhance your professional career and lead to industry developments.
Business professionals prepare a 30 second Elevator Pitch for networking events to communicate their idea to prospective business partners. In recent years the elevator pitch has been adapted by the scientific community into the Three Minute Thesis (Rina Shaikh-Lesko , 2014). The Three Minute Thesis can be used at networking events like the ARRB conference to enhance networking opportunities.
Shaikh-Lesko discusses this innovative approach to communicating scientific innovation in her article Science Speak, published in The Scientist via the link below:
