This episode of “Making Waves at C-Level” (Formerly “Cool Things Entrepreneurs Do”) is about Networking for Executives. Your network and personal brand inside your company and community matter.
For this episode, Thom turned to his friend Marny Lifshen. Together they co-authored “Some Assembly Required: A Networking Guide for Women”, and have been friends for over 25 years. Marny has consulted with hundreds of companies and law firms and brings hands on research to the topics of networking and personal branding.
In the would of a global pandemic, this is more important than ever for executives and their companies. Many think networking is just for sales professionals, job seekers, or younger workers. But networking for executives can make or break their career.
