“NETWORKING is the single most powerful marketing tactic to accelerate and sustain success for any individual or organization! “– Adam Small
Networking is about making connections and building enduring, mutually beneficial relationships. SBN operates as a catalyst to ensure you meet the “right” people to include in your network and expand your sphere of influence. Ultimately, it’s not about who you know … but WHO KNOWS YOU!! Ask any senior executive, politician, community leader or successful salesperson which single skill or habit helped them excel in their career – an overwhelming majority will respond with one simple word… Networking. – Strategic Business
