“In the process of networking, you hone your story. You actually get a better idea of what you’re trying to convey, how people are reacting to it, and how you need to modify it over time to become even better at telling your story.” - Pat Hedley

She reveals why networking doesn’t have to be stressful, and it can (and should) be joyful, as well as help you learn, share, succeed, and connect in fulfilling ways with others.
