Have you ever been to a "networking" event, collected tons of business cards —and then couldn't wait to take a shower?
We've all been there, and let's be real here:
90% of "networking" events are a colossal waste of time, energy and effort.
They are usually a pitchfest for some insurance or home repair services you're never going to use.
But what about connecting?
Enter my latest guest, David Burkus —one of the world's leading business thinkers. David's forward-thinking ideas and bestselling books are changing how companies approach innovation, collaboration, and productivity.
As a skilled researcher and inspiring communicator, Burkus is one of the foremost minds shaping the future of business. His award winning books have been translated into more than a dozen languages, and his TED Talk has been viewed over 2 million times.
His books include Friend of a Friend: Understanding the Hidden Networks That Can Transform Your Life and Your Career, Pick a Fight: How Great Teams Find a Purpose Worth Rallying Around and several more.
In this episode, you're going to learn why the old ideas and ways of networking are no longer "working", how to be creative and stand out, why COVID-19 can be a chance to re-connect with amazing people, how to harness technology the right way and tons more.
