Next Event: Networking in the North West – 2nd October

by Kate Cocker

However you feel about the word ‘networking’ it’s without a doubt a key skill to progressing in radio. As they say it’s not what you know it’s – well yeah – you know that saying right?

Following on from the success of the Summer Networking Event in London with Edith Bowman and Harriet Scott Sound Women are bringing this session to the North West.

We would like to invite ALL women in radio and audio, right across the North, along to our Networking Event at Media City in Salford on Tuesday October 2nd 2012. Whether you are in community or student radio, work for the BBC, commercial radio, or an indie – you are welcome here. So please come along!

This is your chance to improve your networking skills and practice them with some of the senior representatives of radio in the North.

Peter Salmon, Director of BBC North, will open the event at 6.30pm, and we are thrilled to announce that our guest speakers will be Real Radio’s North West Breakfast Anchor Sam Walker and BBC Radio 5 live’s Shelagh Fogarty. All this plus drinks and networking bingo…

Prior to the event at 5.30pm, Sound Women will be running a workshop on ‘how to network’. Tickets for the training workshop will cost £10. You will be given some key skills and top tips on how to get through that moment of thinking “what on earth do I say?”, making connections that could change your career path.

Tickets for the event and the workshop will go on sale at 9.30am on Monday 24th September at Eventbrite.

Looking forward to meeting you then!
