What People Are Saying…

Heather made a very positive impact on myself and the people within my organization in regards to thinking about networking in a different way and by giving us key tips to incorporate during future events. I am so happy we have a copy of her book in the office to refer to at any time. I have already read 3/4 of it. Great read!

Using the audio clip of modem connection as an analogy for why small talk is important was especially memorable. What also stuck with me was advice to only connect on LinkedIn with people that you would feel confident recommending.

Having read your book, I believe people in every profession, including communications, sales, and nonprofit, could benefit from your insights on productive networking, starting with reframing what “networking” means.

This is a real twist on networking that is really resonating with people.

— Donna Brown, MetLife

Her depiction of traditional networking events really hit home, like why am I at this place where I cannot hear anything and trying to network. She helped me realize there was a much bigger scope to the term networking and that it matters how fresh those connections are and that time needs to be spent to nurture your network.
