Learn how to make networking work

IF you have ever wondered about the real benefits of networks and how to make sure they work effectively, then a series of seminars taking place at Southern Cross University’s Lismore and Coffs Harbour campuses this week may be for you.

Myrna Mandell, Visiting Fellow at Southern Cross University and Emeritus Professor, California State University, will share insights from her research on networks conducted in conjunction with academics at Queensland University of Technology. She will also explain how the three Ls of learning, language, and leadership in networks are the keys to success.

“Networks are having a profound effect on the way that society is organised at the local, national and international level,” said Professor Mandell.

“A defining feature of a successful network is the quality of the interactions between members and the three Ls of learning, language and leadership are important indicators of this quality.

“Finally, the synergy created through people connected with each other through networks must be leveraged. This can only be done with the type of leadership that is able to build relationships and identify and capitalise on the opportunities that arise from the pooling of resources.”

The seminar is facilitated by SCU’s Centre for Tourism, Leisure and Work and the Regional Futures Institute.

‘Learning, Language and Leadership as Conduits to Dynamic Networks’ will take place at Coffs Harbour on Thursday, November 5 in MLG13 from 12pm until 2pm.

Light refreshments will be provided.
