Publisher's Summary

Over the last few decades, networking has devolved into an endless series of cattle call events full of open bars and closed fists. Perfect strangers, after a long day at the office, agree to show up and bump into each other, randomly exchanging business pitches for business cards. Needless to say, traditional networking isn't working anymore. For successful 21st century business people, large networking events and the mountains of business cards they produce have become a waste of time and valuable resources. It's time for a new, modern approach to networking. Born out of author Derek Coburn's frustration with having spent thousands of fruitless hours attending traditional networking events, this book offers fresh, effective, unconventional strategies for growing and nurturing a powerful network. These strategies grew Coburn's revenue by 300% in just 18 months and can have a major impact on your business. You will learn how to:

  • Become the Ultimate Connector
  • Become the Ultimate Resource
  • Identify and develop relationships with world-class professionals
  • Enhance the value you deliver for your best clients
  • Position yourself for more quality introductions to ideal prospective clients.

Once you implement the networking strategies in this audiobook, the quality of your clients, your business, and your life will improve dramatically.

Decent nuggets but his voice...

The author has excellent nuggets in this book; however, I really wished he would have used an narrator other than himself. His voice is not good for the narration of books. Professional narrators exist for a reason.

Not for people starting from nothing

This might be helpful if you already have a large network and want to build on it. This book assumes that you do have that and it's ideas won't work unless you do.
