How to Make, Grow and Keep Your Business Relationships


Your network and personal brand matter to your career. If you are not managing your reputation, you can be sure that you still have one.

This presentation will motivate and inspire anyone to make creating a network of professional contacts a priority. If we have learned anything over the past 18 months of recession it is that all opportunities come from people. Companies and individuals who have had the most success have relied on long standing, mutually beneficial relationships (coupled with hard work) to find their way through the tough times.
