Networking is an essential skill; it’s the key to success. So why are so many of our connections superficial and transactional? And why do they get us nowhere in our personal or professional life? Maybe because we’ve lost sight of the fact that it’s not about the quantity of connections you make, but the quality of the relationships you build and nurture.
Building a small, tight and connected network of a key group of people is critical to future proof your career and business ventures in this 21st century world of busyness - a network that evolves with you and is a non-stop source of opportunity. Networking still matters, but it’s your network that matters more.
