Enhance your networking to promote your public profile
NTFs: Debbie Holley, Helen Webster and Sue Beckingham
This workshop is for those considering applying for the National Teaching Fellowship (NTF) Scheme in 2022 or beyond, and will offer information about the scheme that will help you consider any future application that you may want to make. In addition to this, we will offer insights and thoughts from an interdisciplinary panel about using your existing networks, and targeting and reaching out to new networks as you build your NTF profile. We ran a session about successful networking for impact at the Association of National Teaching Fellows symposium last year and will build upon this work. But how to get started, to move from your existing internal operational networks that enable you to get you work done, to personal networks? Networks are built upon a reciprocal two way relationship with real people, says Prof Sally Brown. Harvard Business Review add an additional level - strategic networking for linking up with, and creating, your role as an opinion leader.
