Power Hour Plus: Networking Series 2014–15
In this dynamic job market, it’s important to stand out. To help Notre Dame graduates achieve career success, the Networking Committee of the Alumnae and Alumni Association has created the Power Hour Plus series — networking events, just-for-fun activities and professional and personal development workshops conducted by engaging, knowledgeable speakers. Events are offered in the evening and on weekends throughout the academic year.
Gerry Sandusky, Voice of the Ravens, will be at Notre Dame on Wednesday, October 1 to discuss his new book - Forgotten Sundays: A Son's Story of Life, Loss, and Love from the Sidelines of the NFL.
Sponsored by our Networking committee, a reception at 6:30 will precede Gerry's lecture and book signing. This event will be free and open to the public. Cash bar (wine and beer) and complimentary hors d'oeuvres will be served.
Wednesday, October 1
6:30 - 8:30 p.m.

Do you wish you knew how to successfully mingle at social gatherings, professional events and holiday parties? Would you like to be the person from the event who is remembered for all the right reasons?
Plan to join us for Mingle, Mingle — the first event in the 2014–15 Power Hour Plus series. The focus will be on appropriate conversation topics for social gatherings and tips for overcoming “mingle-phobia.” Led by Carol Haislip from the International School of Protocol, you’ll learn how to:
- successfully enter a room, join groups and initiate conversations
- make a great first impression through a proper handshake, eye contact, introductions and appropriate nonverbal communication
- be interested — and interesting! — in conversation
- master the art of a graceful escape
