Webinar: “Bigger than You”
by Andy Lopata
You can’t do it all on your own.
Whatever you think about your abilities, and whatever you’d like other people to think, you will achieve so much more in your career, in your role and for your business if you’re open to the support of others. Yet, unfortunately, whether because of time pressures, the need to save face or sheer lack of focus, very few of us achieve anywhere near the level of success that our network could help us reach.
This session is designed to help you change that. Over the course of this presentation, we look at:
– Why we don’t like to let anyone help us
– The importance of a trusted network and where to find it
– When and where to share
– The role of mentors and sponsors
– Mastermind groups
– How networks can give us key business intelligence
– Innovating and creating new ideas with the help of our network
– The support offered through online networks
Labelled ‘Mr Network’ by The Sun, The Financial Times called Andy Lopata ‘one of Europe’s leading business networking strategists’. The co-author of two books on networking, Andy is a regular columnist for the US magazine ‘The National Networker’, as well as being quoted in national press, including The Sunday Times and The Guardian. Andy’s third book is being published by FT Prentice Hall in September 2011. For eight years, Andy was Managing Director of Business Referral Exchange, one of the UK’s leading referral focused networking organisations. Andy is a former vice-president of the Professional Speakers Association.
“Andy gave a moving and meaningful talk that I don’t think any of us will forget. His honesty and humanity, as well as the important message about reaching out for help when you need it, was as powerful as it was vulnerable.
‘Networking’ as a topic can often seem forced… about tools and techniques to ‘work a room’ or ‘get noticed’. Andy’s take on it in this talk was so far removed from the glib truisms we’ve all heard before.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him for any group in which reaching out for the support of others is the key to personal and professional success.”
