What readers are saying

“So many of us dislike or even fear the transactional nature of
traditional networking. Karen Wickre has done a great service by
showing how it’s possible to make genuine connections that last,
that we can nurture across the world for all kinds of purposes.”

—Chris Anderson, Head of TED and author of TED Talks:
The Offcial TED Guide to Public Speaking

“Karen Wickre reminds us that the ability to put your phone in your pocket, look a person in the eye, and really connect is not only one of life’s great pleasures—it is the key to succeeding in your career.”

—Kim Scott, author of Radical Candor

“Karen Wickre shows how networking can move from being transactional to being transformational in your life. This is one of the best ‘read it in the morning, use it in the afternoon’ career guides I’ve ever read.”

—Chip Conley, author of Wisdom @ Work: The Making of a Modern Elder

“Taking the Work Out of Networking is a game-changer.”

—Olivia Fox Cabane, author of The Charisma Myth
