Peers with Ideas
Sharing and learning from our successes (and failures!) is what makes ILI such a fun, profitable and collaborative experience, and this year we've added a whole range of sharing activities in the new Peers with Ideas sessions running in parallel to the main conference. Swap tips, ideas and discover new tools and inspiration through Peers with Ideas at ILI this October.
MINI WORKSHOP – SPEAK UP, SPEAK OUT
A workshop for anyone who finds the thought of public speaking or networking events a bit daunting
Tuesday 18 October
Suzanne Wheatley, Sue Hill and TFPL, UK
A room full of strangers at a networking event is a fun experience for some, but the opposite for others. Learn how to navigate your way through the room and successfully make connections and contribute to conversations. Plus, learn strategies for public speaking: understand and overcome the barriers to speaking up and out. This is an interactive session - one with structure and plenty of smiles that will send you back into the conference and your workplace feeling confident in your ability to network and speak in public. Places are limited and pre-event signup is required – further information has been sent to registered delegates.

Pre-event signup is required – further information has been sent to registered delegates.THE SECRET GARDENS OF SEARCH
