Networking is difficult! You finish university and are expected to "start networking", but no one hands you a guide. Unfortunately such a guide doesn't exist, but Jarryd will speak about what a guide could contain, whether it be his experiences networking at game industry events, in academic settings, or with events outside the game industry. With Jarryd's varied background he will cover a number of things he's learned about networking from his career in many different positions.

Takeaway

Whether it be from small conferences, large events like GDC with tens of thousands of people, and even networking at non-game industry events. Attendees will walk away with a number of tips and techniques they can apply to their networking experiences.

Intended Audience

Anyone who is new to professional networking, working to improve their networking, and anyone who needs to network on game related matters outside game industry setting and events.
