Social networking and social media are all the rage for connecting with others - for career development, business growth, personal branding, and just plain fun! But not everyone was born with the "Social Networking" Rosetta Stone. There are a few folks (like moi) who could use a jumpstart in networking effectively and with panache.
Voila! Plan on attending the Reach Branding Club's February teleseminar "Some Assembly Required: How to Make, Grow, and Keep Your Business Relationships" with Thom Singer on February 21, 2008 at 12 noon EST. You will learn the answers to such burning questions as:
- What's the difference between networking and making connections?
- How can I fit developing real relationships into my already busy life?
- What are the elements of a memorable thank-you note?
- How can I keep track of everyone and what makes them so special?
- Is there any way to turn this "networking" into real dollars?
Just FYI - Thom is a business development / networking / professional speaking guru and author of two books on the power of business networking and relationships. With an active Some Assembly Required blog and BlogTalkRadio show that attracts high-caliber speakers, Thom is definitely into communicating his personal brand and value proposition with style and sincerity.
For a taste of Thom's musings, check out his recent blog posts on Manufacture Your Own Luck (Tip#56 of 66 Tips to Better Networking) and I>U...not in the on-line social media world! where he says:
The world is flat. We are all just people trying to make our own way on this big blue ball. I=U...but I+U=Infinite Possibilities!!!
Now that should be the tagline for the socially connected! Anyone for a T-shirt?
