Why is networking much more than meeting new people? What is the psychology behind connecting with others? What is the dynamic of social networks? As a freelance lecturer, Lenka provides answers to these questions and unlocks the power of professional networking for life-sciences students, innovators, and early-career entrepreneurs.

Fascinated by the nature of human behavior, she spent the last 7 years researching, testing, and implementing networking strategies within the professional environment. Lenka’s mission is to challenge networking stereotypes and encourage others to build their networks before they need them. In her interactive lectures and workshops, Lenka uniquely shifts the focus from what to do to why it works. This enables her audience to reflect on their own networking strategies and develop individual solutions.

Lenka is a scientist at Heidelberg University with PhD degree in molecular biology, expertise in oncology research, and practical experience with the full cycle of innovation.
