When I started attending Life Science Networking events I learned a new way to view networking so that it was beneficial to myself as well as those around me.  The perspective that I acquired from the interactions with other job seekers was something I hadn’t considered as I went into networking, but the way to stay positive and active is

Mike helped me to revamp my approach to networking. Now, going into a networking event, my goal is just to make initial connections that I’ll follow up on afterwards, which takes off a lot of the pressure. My focus in these short conversations is on how I can help out the other person, which makes the whole experience more enjoyable

I have never been a big networking person.  It has been a tricky thing for me to do well.  From our networking meeting, an important piece of information was that networking is a skill to be developed and the approach to be taken will often depend on your goals.  We started out with a lot of questions and I came

Dr. Davies’ sessions are informative and filled with great advice on how to seek, build, and support relationships that can help you grow professionally; I’d say, even personally too. My experiences with all seminars provided within the Life Science Networking group have been positive and of great help. I encourage everyone to take part. There’s something useful for everyone, regardless

“I used to find my job networking to be awkward when the focus was on how someone might help me find a job.  With Mike’ s guidance, I changed my networking focus to learning about how I might help my fellow job seeker with their job searching and this has made networking much more natural and rewarding.  I have built genuine relationships with people

“Conversational coaching is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Michael Davies. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting with Mike who was referred to me through my own networking activities, during which he took the time to sit down with me over coffee to breakdown networking into a simple easy to follow process.  Above all, I was
