Making Conversations About Networking Count!

“We don’t pass business cards at our meetings, we don’t allow it. But business is constantly happening because people like each other…” –

Joe Chatham, 

Making Conversations Count, September 2021.


If there’s one thing we’ve all had to learn to do in the past year, it’s how to overcome that awkwardness while networking over a screen.

It’s not as easy as some might think, to build a reputation with relationship marketing. 

Yet, if anyone can speak to it, it’s this episode’s guest!

Joe Chatham is the founding father of USA500Clubs, a growing network of ‘white collar’ professionals across the coastline from California to Boston and in between.

After spending 25 years in the mortgage brokerage industry running a successful practice Joe navigated two recessions and knew the landscape was changing.

In this episode, Joe offers a lot of insight and wisdom in terms of how networking should go, and how we should behave.

Even during those awkward moments that only participating in a video call while working from home can throw up!

Wendy Harris Making Conversations Count Podcast

What can I tell you about me?! I'm very good at getting other people to talk about themselves. Having been in the sales arena for over 3 decades, my skillset has developed to enable others to introduce their services to other businesses. Talking about myself always feels odd.

But here goes. I've made over 2 million phone calls in my career, helped 1000's people pick up the phone and have better conversations which has leaked into life in general, I've created billions of £££'s in opportunities to do business.

I love nothing more than listening to other people's stories and gently guiding people to share their insights with others.

Whenever I'm in training it's always interactive and fun. I truly believe we learn by being involved.

It's why I started my podcast, to share these stories and be helpful to the business community. I also wrote a book with many of my training exercises in it for those starting out as the demands of your cash flow when you get going mean there's often a wheel not oiled as it should be.

For me, conversations is where it all happens.
