BYDN: Kelly Hoey on Building Your Dream Network
At crucial points in Kelly Hoey’s life—through three graduations and two career changes; each time during a recession—she innately understood the benefit of networking. Today, the master networker, connector, author, investor and speaker is highly sought after for her views on how to make networking efficient and effective.
“Networking is actually just human relationships and people,” she recently told a reporter. “It’s not a platform, it’s not an app. Relationships are what drive economies, ideas and create possibilities. It’s not who you know. It’s not what you know. It’s who knows what you know.”
Now, Hoey has published Build Your Dream Network (TarcherPerigree Jan. 2017) to guide individuals through the sometimes-arduous process of networking.
“Kelly has a profound ability to build strong networks, but more powerful than that, she understands when and how to activate a network, and how to leverage connections to build value,” notes Elizabeth Talerman, CEO, Managing Partner, Nucleus.
The book helps:
Determine the most effective ways to connect with others so you don’t clutter your calendar with dead-end coffee dates and informational interviews
Synchronize IRL networking efforts with your digital outreach
Turn “closed door” conversations into strong personal relationships and business opportunities
Eliminate FOMO by keeping your networking efforts focused
Join us as Kelly Hoey discusses these tips and provides practical advice that you can implement into your life. She also will sign copies of her book. The first 25 attendees will receive a free copy.
