Apologies for missing a blog … the website was unfortunately out of action for a while, but it’s finally back and so is Bath GGD!
Tuesday, November 26, 2019 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Sometimes we like to offer a mixed bag of useful things and that is what you will get tonight. I recently attended the Anthropology + Technology Conference in Bristol, the first of its kind in Bristol and full of exciting talks.
The subject itself is so important, I asked Dawn Walter (the event organiser) to speak to us tonight about it: The intersection of human and tech and why we need Anthropologists within this area of tech in the first place. (https://www.linkedin.com/in/dawn-walter-b36903a/)
When it comes to conferences, some of you may not like to attend due to the dreadful task of Networking. But worry no longer help is on the way:
How to network for people who hate people
Do you want to know how to talk to people in a business social context without panicking and/or wanting to curl up and die? It can suck to network as an introverted person, but bona fide introvert and professional networker Margaret Davidson from Mayden Academy has found some ways to make it work – and even, sometimes, be enjoyable. Find out some of her shortcuts to making networking less dreadful. (https://www.linkedin.com/in/margaret-davidson-994b5a30/)
And tonight the meeting will be hosted by Bath Spa Uni’s new Enterprise and Innovation Hub at Palace Yard Mews. It is freshly painted and looks good.
Hoping to see lots of you there! Sign up here on our meetup page.
