Takeaways from today's episode:

  • Practice: The more you network, the easier it becomes.
  • Be genuine. If you have a true interest in science, and a true interest in people, it is a very powerful combination that will make interactions easy.
  • Not everyone is comfortable with meeting and greeting. The good thing is that you have at least one interest in common, which is science. Once you start, the communication will flow.
  • Pay it forward, introduce people to each other especially if you have junior scientists that you are mentoring by seeding the conversation.
