The UVic Alumni Association invites alumni and friends to join us online or in-person for this exclusive event.

Has social distancing and reliance on digital tools made it more difficult to network, or have we finally realized there is more to networking than grabbing a coffee?

2020 disrupted regular work and gathering routines, and for many this meant adjusting to life behind a computer screen. This sudden isolation was a sharp reminder of just how critical relationships are for our personal and professional well-being—and how vulnerable we are without them.

In this dynamic and engaging presentation, Kelly Hoey, UVic BA '87, will illustrate how co-workers, clients and collaborators can connect and thrive in a hybrid networking environment.

She will demonstrate how Zoom, Twitter and email are all tools for real networking and why the most successful networkers will be amphibious, blending the online and offline networking activities that now need to work in tandem.
