As IT personnel, we tend to get boxed-in, stranded on our own little island. We fail to make people aware of our activities, both within our own organization and in our wider professional circles. Just like a shipwrecked captain waiting for the rescue boat on a desert island, if you fail to communicate, your career will be stuck with no possibility of progression. This presentation will show you how to leverage networking and self-marketing techniques that will allow you to set sail off the island and into new opportunities. We will also examine various tools like Linked In, Facebook and Twitter to see how to exploit them to their fullest potential for our own benefit.

This fun filled session will inspire you to get out of your cubes and network with fellow geeks.
