In today’s world two key strategies for business growth are the Internet and Networking. Skills and expertise are essential for both. While there is no shortage of Internet training, the vital skills of networking have been neglected. What is more, money invested in professional and business training risks being wasted because it is not balanced by developing appropriate interpersonal skills.
Business has always relied on effective interaction between people to generate more opportunities and create more sales. All business is people business.
