For the engineering and geoscience professionals, the ability to communicate and network effectively can boost your profile and engender better business alliances and connections for mutual benefit.

These sessions will enhance both your personal and professional life by providing you with some simple strategies to quickly build rapport with others, overcome shyness, start small talk and take it to BIG talk, and enter and exit conversations with finesse.
