Our last event of the year was held on 9 December, a learning session on Networking for Success, delivered by RDA Illawarra CEO Debra Murphy. Debra adeptly took us through the goals and outcomes we should expect from networking, the critical importance of first impressions, the do’s and don’ts of networking and how to spot a group that looks like they would welcome you to join them. There were some very helpful tips and insights shared that we can all use in future networking situations.
The session was followed by our LIP Alumni Celebration where we had the chance to test out our new skills! It was great to catch up with Alumni from past LIP programs and celebrate the beginning of the festive season with our LIP supporters Associate Professor Grace McCarthy from UOW, Graham Lancaster, President of The Illawarra Connection and LIP Buddy Bill Dowson OAM.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all of us at RDA Illawarra and the Leadership Illawarra Program. We look forward to seeing you in 2022.
