Sandy presented an excellent webinar on the “12 Rules of Effective Networking” for WITI (Women In Technology International).  Her book “I’m at a Networking Event – Now What???” was just ranked #1 on Inc.com’s 2010 Holiday Business Book Gift Guide, and based upon her webinar, I can understand why.  She covered all aspects of networking, from how to prepare to how to follow-up.  Congratulations Sandy on your book and your excellent webinar!  For anyone who needs to learn how to network more effectively or just needs to polish up their skills, she is a great resource.

I attended Sandy’s 12 Rules of Effective Networking webinar and received a wealth of knowledge. It’s a must for those looking to develop meaningful contacts and truly expand a trusted network of colleagues.

Sandy’s not comfortable with the title, “Guru” – but that’s exactly what she is… A networking GURU, with the moxie and insights to truly help people improve their networking skills. Sandy’s straightforward approach is a breath of fresh air, as it lets both her and anyone she’s consulting get to the heart of the matter and start solving problems. Sandy recently spoke with my networking group, and everyone left smarter than when they arrived.

Our first networking workshop was last week (the 2nd) and it was a success. Our primary goal was to provide people with tools for effective networking and that happened to a very enjoyable degree. Sandy Jones-Kaminski did a terrific job talking about how to start conversations effectively and de-mythologizing the whole networking process. She created a bookmark that has, what she refers to, as “Four Myths of Networking” which she shared with us. She then gave her audience some really useful phrases that can be for starting conversations. Those conversations then often lead to developing useful relationships; relationships where both sides have a sense of how they can help the other person.

Notes from the Job Search

Sandy delivered an outstanding presentation for our college students on using Linked In for networking and job searches. She excels at targeting her material and engaging her audience with valuable insights and useful information. She is a delight to work with and I highly recommend her as your next speaker.

Sandy provided an outstanding presentation on Networking at the Roche Palo Alto Career Transition Center. She was engaging and high energy but most of all afterwards people kept saying, “now I can do this.” She gave very specific examples that allowed people to walk out and try what she suggested. She brought it to a very personal level and allowed people to lose their fear of networking!
