gatherings, industry sessions and other social situations may require you to

talk makes you nervous or you’re unsure what to talk about, come to this
interactive workshop where you can practice topics to discuss, strategies for
approaching people, entering/exiting conversations gracefully and how to
follow-up with people afterwards.
