DISCLAIMER: this is not a give-away or a lottery. I am offering you an opportunity to work hard to do something uncomfortable (public speaking); to take time out of your day job (or search for a job) in order to prepare a presentation, travel to a conference and to present in front of a bunch of strangers. If you’re thinking that that is a pretty crappy “opportunity”, read on
Dear MVP Readers,
I am organizing a session at 2010 ACS Fall meeting, titled: Computer Modeling - The Wave of the Future. The session is co-sponsored by the Division of Computers in Chemistry, Division of Chemical Information, and Division for Small Chemical Business.
Why you should care:
I am selecting speakers for this session and it is a wonderful chance for many of you to:
-Present yourself as an expert in computer modeling, chemistry, biochemistry, engineering and/or small business development area
-Network with industry professionals in chemical, biochemical and engineering industry
-Boost your resume
-Learn what’s new in the chemistry field
-Develop you communication skills
Why might you want to do any of these things? (If you do not know the answer already, you REALLY need the info in my Toolkit!) All of the above can be instrumental in helping you get a job, grow your business, or help you become a more valued industry professional.
What you need to qualify:
- Ability to travel to Boston and attend ACS meeting on August 22-26 (you’ll be responsible for your own travel expenses, but if you are NOT an ACS member, you will get free admission to the conference on the day of presentation).
-Be working (or have worked) in area of computer modeling that has something to do with chemistry, biochemistry, biology or chemical or bio engineering
- Be able to say something about how modeling and simulation can help small businesses (I’d be happy to help you with this part, just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you’re stuck on this one)
I am interested! What to do next:
If you have any questions for me about presenting at ACS, please submit them in comments below. I promise to answer all of them! If you are seriously thinking of presenting, please contact me at email@example.com.
Finally, please pass the link to this post to any of your colleagues or friends who are looking to grow as a technical professional!
Best of luck!
