The networker offers a helpful reference or contact to a friend who has just launched a new business or is seeing a new job.
The networker gladly gives an informational interview to a young person interested in breaking into the industry - along with a little concrete advice how to improve her resume or sharpen her interviewing skills." ~ Jonathan M. Tisch
"To be a good networker, you need to care about people - not in the artificial, smarty style of the fake networker, but with genuine feeling." ~ Jonathan M. Tisch
"Listen carefully: you never learn a thing while your mouth is open." ~ Jonathan M. Tisch
