Women in Rail organised an event “The art of Effective networking”, in London, on Wednesday 20th November 2013 to explore some of the issues which prevent women within the rail industry from pushing themselves forward in their career.
The workshop was hosted jointly by Women in Rail, Young Railway Professionals and the law firm Dentons.
The evening featured an inspiring presentation by award winning trainer Nick Davies and was followed by a fun session on cocktail making during which Women in Rail members had an opportunity to practice their new found skills and build their network at the same time.
The workshop was a great opportunity to discuss how the network of contacts we build in the early stages of our career is an important part of our future and learn to create a rapport and connect with anyone, whilst at the same time having fun and meeting like-minded women from within the rail industry.
The event was attended by about 90 women from the rail sector and was a great success… to be repeated in 2015!
