"Network Tutorial and Networking for Professional Growth" was birthed after nearly 10 years of trial and error.
There are a few books on the subject but none take into account the personal aspect.
Everyone learns and grows at a different rate and by different methods. Some just need direction and then there are some who need to be taken by the hand and shown.
I am Tom Dingwall your Network Tutor.
After working in the professional engineering field for over 30 years, a life changing experience forced me to begin my own business. I learned quickly that proper networking was the key to success. Over the last 10 years, I have learned what works and what doesn't. And I have taught my techniques to a number of professionals with success.
Many businesses network but their success rate is not where it should or could be.
I teach the 'why', 'how', 'when' and 'where'.
Knowing your 'why' develops focus.
Knowing 'how' creates a plan.
Knowing 'when' provides a strategy.
Knowing 'where' reveals the target.
I have an eleven point outline which includes these four key points.

"Networking is an essential part of building wealth."
"It's not what you know but who you know that makes the difference."
"More business decisions occur over lunch and dinner than at any other time, yet no MBA courses are given on the subject."
"Informal conversation is probably the oldest mechanism by which opinions on products and brands are developed, expressed, and spread."
"The successful networkers I know, the ones receiving tons of referrals and feeling truly happy about themselves, continually put the other person's needs ahead of their own."
