Learning to network

Next steps

Filed under: LinkedIn, Manage my network — Arthur M. Gallagher @ 4:26 pm

Since learning about networking sites, and seeing how crass people can be in the more public ones like MySpace, I have been a little wary of the whole concept. Well, how do you know whether something is just the latest over-hyped fad, or whether it is in fact destined to be the best thing since sliced-bread.

Just in case, I had judiciously saved a link to a post I drifted across, by Des Walsh.

Now I would be the first to admit that anybody who introduces themselves as a “business coach and blogging evangelist” risks being tarred with the brush “purveyor of hype”, but I suspended my disbelief, and uncharacteristically left the shortcut saved on my desktop

Part of the agreement I made with myself in signing up for LinkedIn was that I should make a proper go of it, and invest the time in getting it right. That’s why I have risked eating in to the little time I have available in my busy routine by joining up for the LinkedInnovators and LinkedInBloggers Yahoo Groups. Well, Des, I really do hope you know what you’re talking about.
