Women Building Success in Biosciences: ‘Build Your Dream Network’ Interactive Breakfast Featuring Keynote, Kelly Hoey

is pleased to present a networking breakfast and interactive session on
Thursday, March 2nd, 2017 in Ann Arbor with acclaimed
networking guru Kelly
, whose book ‘BUILD
helps readers build and activate powerful
networks to achieve both their long and short-term goals.

Kelly Hoey is a writer, investor, connector, and networking expert,
lauded everywhere from Forbes (“1 of 5 Women Changing the World of
VC/Entrepreneurship”) to Fast Company (“25 Smartest Women On Twitter”).
In ‘BUILD YOUR DREAM NETWORK’, she reframes networking for the modern
era, where everyone is posting, liking and friending fast and furious
but failing to leverage their connections thoughtfully. However the
reality is that whether landing a new client, new job, or a coveted
board seat, most business and career problems today have networking
solutions. Kelly will talk about mastering networking in the modern age,
including a few of her signature tricks and best practices, and show how
small changes to our daily routine, simple generosity, and goal-focused
planning can lead to big opportunities.

“This fireside chat is ideal for bio-industry professionals seeking
guidance on effectively cultivating meaningful connections. It’s a lot
more than mingling at gatherings or sending LinkedIn invitations”, says
Stephen Rapundalo, PhD, President and CEO, MichBio. “We’re excited that
Kelly will be able to share her innovative insights on creating a
knowledge network”.

Attendees with a background or interest in the bioscience industry and
at all points in their career—from students to senior-level—will find
value in this event. The goal is to engender meaningful interactions,
spark friendships, business relationships, and career opportunities.

The Women Building Success in Biosciences event will be held at the
Kensington Hotel on State Street beginning at 8:00am. A reception will
follow at 10:00am. Different registration rates are available for
MichBio members and nonmembers, and students. Attendees will receive a
complimentary hard-cover copy of Kelly’s book, Build Your Dream Network:
Forging Powerful Relationships in a Hyper-Connected World.
