“Networking: It’s not just about routers, switches and firewalls”

University teaches a great many things, whether your focus is in engineering or the arts.  Something that tends to be lost on the student, however, is the fine art of communication.  Whether your objective is to find a job, book an interesting speaker for an event, or simply to gain knowledge in a new field, understanding how to take your virtual private network, turn it into a local area network and then into a wide area network is invaluable.  This interactive workshop will give you some ideas about how to effectively communicate with others and to expand your personal and professional network.
