Andy Lopata, Business Networking Strategist
The last couple of years have been tough and many have been forced to adapt to survive. Despite the credit crunch many businesses have thrived and they all share one thing in common…..they haven’t done it alone.
Networking is a key tool in the success for any business, particularly when the going gets tough. Use it effectively and you can generate your own recovery. To do that you need to understand exactly what you need to achieve in your business and how your network can help.
