Show Notes:

Key messages:
– connect with people you feel safe with, have a good head and heart and will return your calls
– be specific about the nature of people who could help you
– build and nurture a list of about 50 connections
– First look at how you can give to them/be kind
– Next tell them what you are doing now
– Then ask them what ideas do you have for me?
– Then ask who else do you know I should talk too.
– Get good with Linkedin and Twitter (15 mins per day). Judy has 55,000 connections on Twitter (at Jan 18)
– Talk to 2 strangers every day, can offer a compliment to break the ice. You never know who you will meet or what you will learn
– When at a networking event or on a display stand at a show – get from behind a desk and mix – smile/shake hands/ask how they are        finding the event/why did they attend/offer a compliment. At a show give them eg white paper if they are interested. You then follow the process above
– Do not be passive or afraid to talk to people. They will often appreciate a conversation with you.
– Be open to strangers and open to serendipity which occurs once you have got into action

Final points:
1. Kick Fear Into Touch
2. Commit to building a strategic network as a goal this year
3. Write your network down and look and work on it regularly
4. Get clear about what you want/realize you are worthy and that you have the resources to make it happen
5. Take Action
6. Go to a couple of groups that you would not typically go to.

I recently had the great pleasure of being his guest on The Business Elevation Show on Voice America and the experience was superb. This came as no surprise to me in that Chris is a leader in his field of developing engaging cultures, engaged leaders and teams. I recently invited Chris to speak at a meeting at the Fides Network in London and his engagement and impact with the audience left everyone feeling charged and positive, with the most fantastic written and verbal feedback from our members. Not only does Chris have an understanding of the dynamics of business, it is also his understanding of human nature and the key role this plays in driving business success that sets him apart.
