Why should I attend?

  • Meet and Network with your Peers
  • Listen & Learn about Networking Through Social Platforms

If you would like the opportunity to network with other staff in the professional and scholarly publishing arena, meet your peers and find out what they’re doing and learn about networking through social platforms then this free (for AAP members) afternoon talk is for you!

How will the session be structured?
You will have the opportunity to listen to a senior professional discuss the following:

  • The evolution of social media
  • How to network professionally? 
  • How to use email for networking purposes? What is the procedure, politics, etiquette for using email and social media channels such as LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook. How do you approach a senior level person?
  • Why is it important to have robust professional identity on LinkedIn and how to optimize it?
  • How to build and nurture a professional network? How to respond to requests to connect on social media channels – who do you respond to and how?  Who do you ignore/block? How do you network/communicate with colleagues?
  • Implement a content strategy that keeps you front of mind with your network.  Why, what, when and how do I share content on social media​?

The afternoon will end with an opportunity to network with your colleagues and speak to the presenter (in person only attendees).
