Building and Nurturing a Professional Network
Stephen Scypinski, Ph.D., Vice President, Pharmaceutical Technology, Daiichi-Sankyo Inc.

In today’s high-paced and Internet-centric environment, it is much easier to build and maintain a professional network than it was in the days of business card files and phone calls. Having an up to date network could be valuable in many situations. Who would you call if you were about to undergo a government inspection and needed an experienced opinion? Where do you turn if your position is being severed and you want to know who is hiring? Who would you contact regarding the reputation of a contractor or consultant you might want to business with? Learn how to build, expand, and nurture an up to date scientific professional network so essential for these and other circumstances.  Professional social media such as LinkedIn present a multitude of opportunities for members to network and communicate with colleagues and friends in their industry.

We hope you will be able to attend one or more of these career enhancing workshops!  Registration opens in early July; discounted Full Conferee registration fees are available until Oct. 15th.
