Networking 101

Alan Smith gave us genx librarians a bit of a wake up call on what it means to network. But not in the computer sense. This was a very nice session for that part of the afternoon when everyone just wants to drift off back to sleep after having had a nice lunch but it also made us think about how badly we'd all been doing at the pre conference dinner (see the photo).
So for me, I think I might be putting networking down on my list of things I'm not very good at. I am apparently more of a self promoter and socialiser which is quite different.

Still if you get the chance to hear Alan speak, do it he is worth listening to and while this was a bit of a frivolous topic it is obvious he knows his stuff.
