The next member-only SPIE Webcast will feature Gary Hinkle, president and founder of Auxilium, Inc., on "Essential Skills for Engineering Project Leaders."

The free Webcast will be broadcast live, for members only, at 10 a.m. PST Wednesday, 30 July. It will also be archived for later viewing.

The workshop teaches skills needed by optical engineers who lead technical projects, drive innovation, and influence others. Hinkle will cover the differences between leadership and management and offer tips on developing leadership skills such as how to get assistance from others to get things done. The workshop is intended for early career professionals and will conclude with a question and answer session with Hinkle.

Online seminars on professional development topics are just one of the ways SPIE helps members collect new ideas for taking optics and photonics technology to market.

The free Webcasts are helpful for students and young professionals who are building careers in optical engineering and are useful for any photonics professional looking for career advice. The Webcasts are recorded live at various intervals and archived for member viewing at any time along with other SPIE Webcasts featuring interviews with experts, event coverage, and hot topics on solid-state lighting, lithography, and other technology subjects.
