How to Improve Your Life Through Networking

With David Burkus

Do you hate the idea of networking or do you see it as an opportunity to give to others? For some networking has a negative connotation, but our guest is here to set the record straight and tell you how to improve your life through networking.

David Burkus is a successful author who considers himself a writer first, and a speaker second. He’s written several best-sellers including his latest book called Friend of a Friend., which is specifically about how to enjoy networking.

On today’s edition of The Speaker Lab, we’ll specifically talk about what most of us do wrong when networking, and what we should instead. David will tell us how to actually connect with other speakers, and do it in a way that fosters real connection, and he’ll explain how to find out who you already know to help you find gigs. Buckle up and get ready to enjoy this episode of The Speaker Lab with David Burkus.
