As a small-consultancy owner, I always understood that networking was important but I fit into a definition Neil puts early on in his excellent book ‘The Reluctant Networker’: always preferring to email than talk on the phone. I’m glad then that a client project forced me to have to phone Neil up because it was that chat that led me to discovering his hugely powerful book. Very highly recommended.”

“In today’s world networking is essential not just to find your next role but to ensure you make a success of your current role. By taking the perspective of ‘The Reluctant Networker’ the book is essential reading for the many people who have realised the importance of networking but find that it does not come naturally to them.”
