  1. Revolutionize Your Networking Game w/ Robbie Samuels Jennifer Arvin Furlong 46:29

If you're feeling frustrated and unfulfilled because your attempts to improve networking skills and build meaningful relationships are falling short, then you are not alone! Despite attending events, exchanging business cards, and sending follow-up emails, you may still find yourself lacking the connections and opportunities you desire.

In this episode, you will be able to:

  • Understand the importance of intentionality in the networking process for enhanced results.
  • Apply practical in-person and virtual networking methods to step up your engagement game.
  • Build strong relationships emphasizing collaboration rather than merely swapping business cards.
  • Leverage modern virtual tools to strengthen connections and broaden your networking horizons.
  • Recognize networking as a method to offer support to others, enhancing your personal and professional growth.

My special guest is Robbie Samuels, a networking virtuoso with a passion for creating meaningful connections. His expertise has been recognized by NPR, PCMA, and Forbes, proving his skills are in high demand by industry leaders. As a virtual event design consultant and executive Zoom producer, Robbie has honed his craft in relationship-building, eventually becoming a TEDx speaker and Harvard Business Review contributor. He's also the author of three books, the latest being “Break Out of Boredom: Low Tech Solutions for Highly Engaging Zoom Events.”
