Self-presentation and networking (November 25 – 27, 2020)

Do you find yourself at conferences drinking coffee alone? Do you seem to miss every chance to network? Or do you have the feeling you can’t keep the conversation going or can’t even get it started in the first place? No matter if you answer one of these questions with a clear “yes” or you simply have the feeling that you could improve your selfpresentation and communication skills, then this workshop might be just right one for
