I’ve been writing about networking for more than 30 years! After all these years, I still find that there are many misnomers about what business networking should, or shouldn’t be about. Many people think that business networking is basically about direct selling. Others think that is about relationship building. What do you think makes a great networker?
BusinessNetworking.com blog readers across the globe are invited to participate in a current survey being conducted on business networking and volunteering.
As a member of the Board of Trustees at the University of La Verne, I have been given the opportunity to invite you to take part in this study on business networking and volunteering which is being conducted by the University of La Verne’s Darla Drendel for a doctoral dissertation.
The results will be shared here on BusinessNetworking.com upon completion of the doctoral dissertation and they may also be incorporated into some of my upcoming material, likely in one of my books or articles.
This survey is extremely brief, taking only a few minutes to complete, and it will be an important tool in understanding the relationship between business networking and civic engagement. As a BusinessNetworking.com reader, your input is of great value as you, by nature, likely have plenty of experience participating in both of these arenas.
If you have questions about the survey, please contact Darla Drendel (DarlaDrendel@Yahoo.com) or Marcia Godwin, Ph.D., Director of the University of La Verne’s Institutional Review Board (MGodwin@LaVerne.Edu).
Thank you so much to all of you who take a few minutes to complete this survey–I consider your support a personal favor and I am very appreciative.
