    My business is helping people connect with people & businesses connect with other businesses via networking.

    Everyone has finally realized that it's not the resume, the product or that special service you have that gets you in the door, it's the people you know and network with that may know someone whom can open that door for you. Networking is vogue, it's hot and is now the most accepted means of how a true professional gets ahead of the game. LinkedIN is a great example of professional networking via the internet. BlitzTime is a fantastic 'remote' interactive speed networking tool ...and my company, PDF offers the premiere and best '1-to-many' face-to-face speed networking event licensing. Each is different, each is unique; yet, they compliment each other and provide the most effective advantage for the true professional networker who wants to get ahead, and stay ahead in this ever changing game called business.

    My focus is helping people connect with other people and businesses connect with other businesses via seminars, face-to-face and phone-to-phone speed networking. So while the internet might be one way a person may try to connect with an opportunity, both face-to-face and phone-to-phone speed networking are more effective means of finally presenting that elevator speech you have honed in hopes that it will click with one or more of the people you are interfacing with.

    Speed Networking: person-to-person | business-to-business | face-to-face | phone-to-phone.
    Speed networking, sales meetings, training events, job fairs, company socials/mixers, HR networking, the art of networking presentations, what you need to be an effective networker.
