    Abstract: This short workshop for students will cover communicating at this meeting and beyond. You will walk away better equipped to connect with your audience, whether it’s your grandmother or a potential employer. You will develop an elevator speech you can use throughout the meeting and learn some tips on how to leave a (positive) lasting impression. We will also discuss how to best follow up with new contacts. This workshop will be almost completely hands on, so come ready to let down your guard, meet your peers, have fun, and walk out ready to engage in GSA 2015.
