W6 21st Century Networking: A Modern Approach

Description

Business networking as we know it is dead. Forget the one-on-one idea that networking is only about building business relationships and only the lucky few are deemed worthy enough to network with. This is not the way networking occurs in the 21st century.

Today, business networking is about open, flexible and dynamic learning relationships where anyone can take part, anyone can connect to hare information and insights, and business professionals can be learners or advisors.
