Expert Advice On Business Networking And Tips On Developing Your Networking Skills

Interview with Sean Woodruff

I’m pleased to bring you the following advice from Sean Woodruff. Sean is a successful entrepreneur and marketing expert who happens to enjoy teaching and sharing his knowledge with others (a trait which I’m sure is one of the reasons he’s met with the success that he has).

Josh: How do you define Business Networking and why do you feel it is important?

Sean Woodruff: I’m not sure I have ever really defined it. I have a base belief that all businesses, people, experiences, ideas, results… everything is linked together by relationships. The relationships are what form the “network”.

So, my definition of business networking would be relationships in a business context.

Josh: Sean, can you share one idea that someone could put into practice that would help them to improve their business networking skills?

Sean Woodruff: I find it hard to keep up with all the different names people want to call different forms of business strategies and ideas.

My idea would be for everyone to free themselves from the idea of networking and look at their business as relationships they have with individuals. Individuals make up businesses. Get the relationships right and the business will be right.

Not thinking about business networking may not be a “politically correct” idea when talking about business networking advice but it is the way I feel about it. I think we make everything way more complicated than it really needs to be.
