"Networking - everybody has to do it, nobody has a good definition of what it is, and most people dread it. David Fisher is here to school you on what networking really is, what it can do for you, and how to make the most of it. Spoiler alert: He's going to make networking sound like a lot of fun! This book banishes the glad-handing stereotypes and will increase your confidence AND your influence." (Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell Is Human)
"David uses a humorous, down-to-earth, and conversational approach to unpack the best practices for networking. I've been in this space for 10 years and I learned a thing or two!" (Alexandra Levit, author of Blind Spots: The 10 Business Myths You Can't Afford to Believe on Your New Path to Success and They Don't Teach Corporate in College)
"You're looking at a book that will make you way more efficient at meeting the people you need to be successful. These answers to the questions that plague professionals around networking are direct, easy to follow, and easy to execute." (Jason Seiden, entrepreneur and author of Super Staying Power: What You Need to Become Valuable and Resilient at Work)
If you want to learn about networking in the 21st century then I do suggest you read this book. However here's what I learned that David Fisher may not have intended. Lists don't work nearly as well in audio books as they do in print. In my mind at least they're annoying and detract from the flow and message. Also authors, even ones with speaking experience should consider using a professional reader to ensure that every important word is enunciated clearly and not rushed.
I found this book good. I can improve myself by using the ideas shared. The author has narrated the book with good energy and passion. I believe it would have been more useful if there were more real life examples and stories on the topic.
I use audible to stay current on topics including health/wellness, philosophy, music, and business.
Easy To Follow. Fisher's perspective on successful networking offers simple actions that make a big impact on building solid relationships. Not only in business, but life in general - cliche I know, but true to the core.
One "ah-ha" moment that stands out the most was Fisher's technique on how to politely end a conversation with someone at a networking event. Brilliant!
Great list of book suggestions for further reading! My inner-autodidact thanks you!
