Brief Description:

To help members improve their networking skills, the ASC WA Branch enlisted the help of ace networkers, the Chief Scientist of Western Australia, Professor Lyn Beazley, and Director of Science Partnerships at Scitech, Dr Simon Carroll. Approximately 30 attendees, including 9 non-ASC members, came along to enjoy a drink and nibbles and gain some useful tips about how to expand their networks and build good professional relationships. Following the event, one attendee posted this comment on the Facebook page of the Australian Science Communicators – WA Branch:

Thanks for putting on a great night, and we got to put the tips in to practice immediately – result!
