Professional Linkages Workshop

In partnership with Sydney-based The Frank Team, the Professional Linkages Workshop is a fun and extremely interactive workshop designed to assist commencing AAI scholars with the fundamentals in going about establishing a professional network in Australia.  Activities range from how to navigate a room at a networking event to developing an effective ‘elevator pitch’. AAI scholar feedback indicates that these activities are extremely helpful in developing the self-confidence and motivation to start establishing a professional network.

The Professional Linkages Workshop is delivered in conjunction with the Introduction to On Award Enrichment Workshop and together these activities are designed to assist the commencing AAI scholar to explore opportunities for professional engagement outside university life.

Comments from the 2018 Workshops included:

“Both Workshops provided me with a great start to my time in Australia and I will definitely explore the professional network aligned to my studies and work background in Indonesia”

“Wow I didn’t think the Professional Linkages Workshop would be so much fun. I particularly liked the exercise where we developed the 30 second elevator pitch – so useful to analyse where we can improve our communication skills”
