Promoting yourself - marketing your talents

14 September

Specialists from across a broad range of fields have told veski’s fourth inspiring women professional development & networking event that confidence and being true to yourself, are key to successfully promoting yourself and marketing your talents in the STEM sector.

Panellists provided summaries of each of the panelist’s workshop presentations, specifically written with the audience at the event, as well as those who couldn't attend, in mind.

With fresh insights from the panel, the attendees from a diverse range of sectors were then given the opportunity to further develop their new skills in unique workshop sessions on:

- performing well in interviews with the print and broadcast media;

- maximising your social media profile;

- marketing yourself when applying for grants and fellowships;

and - pitching ideas, storytelling, and personal branding.

A full house for inspiring women PD & networking session

 

The veski event, developed in response to specific requests for information about how to promote yourself which came from attendees at the first event in December 2014, was part of a series designed to develop skill-sets to enhance Victoria’s current talent pool, and increase professional connections.

The veski inspiring women program was announced 12 months ago by the Minister for Innovation at Queen’s Hall in Parliament House. This event follows other successful events on the topics of: - managing family breaks and other career interruptions; - the gender equity issue, with event titled “gender equality is not a women’s issue, it is an everybody issue”; and - mentoring and how we can access mentors and maximise these relationships
