Author and Connection Coach
Thanks for connecting with me!
I'm a big believer in the power of networking and building strong relationships.
Oh ... and I also love wild places, animals, photography, family, street art, travel, reading, writing and dining out.
Please feel free to join me on social media to see more about what I do and who I am.
So I wrote a book ...
On meeting me, many people assume that I’m an extravert as I appear so at ease in groups of people.
I am however, proudly and happily an introvert and acknowledge that it is some of my introvert traits that are my most valuable assets in making real and meaningful connections with people.
And while people now comment on how confident I seem in meeting new people and initiating conversations - I assure you – it hasn’t always been this way!
My first networking experiences were nerve-racking to say the least.
I remember the fears I had -
Worries about whether anyone would talk to me (and the humiliation I would feel if that happened)
Concern that I wouldn’t fit in (and the last thing I wanted to do was feel left out)
Lack of confidence
So I worked out strategies – easy things I could do to reduce and eventually REMOVE all the PAIN of networking and MAXIMISE the REWARDS.
I want to share them with you so you don’t have to go through the same struggles that I did.
