Rupert Bryce delivered a workshop to UQ MBA Careers week to discuss the psychology and emotions of effective business networking. For graduates trying to advance their career prospects, the thought of networking can can surface fears, hesitation and doubt. We discussed a new framework for building a productive network (as opposed to the popular concept ‘networking’). The three key outcomes delivered to the graduate school were:

  • Manage and know yourself – eliminating the fears and concerns to building a network for career success
  • Practical tips on how to enter, sustain and exit conversions in new settings
  • Mapping your network to strategically build advocates and sponsors for career success (see attached photo and link)
The presentation and conversation was exceptionally well received and helped build the confidence and capability of UQ MBA Graduates.
