Ever since I started KM Design I have attended many network meetings to meet new clients and trusted suppliers. It was at a Tring Together network meeting that I first met Paul Ryan, actor and founder of Improve On You (workshops in presentation skills) www.improveonyou.co.uk. Paul's energy, drive and commitment is infectious and his presenting skills are amazing. As a result of this first meeting I invited Paul to present to another network group, The Chilterns Communications Group. Again he impressed and the questions at the end went on for quite a while, with everyone wanting to learn more. Since then our paths have crossed often with Paul even giving me some presenting skills training – something I am building on. So I was delighted when Paul asked me to design the cover of his new book 'How to Network Your Way to Success'.
It's a great read with lots of useful tips. I particularly like Chapter 10 'My Wingman'. I'm going to try this soon. If you want to find out what this is then you'll have to buy Paul's book – available on Amazon! Even for people like me, who have been networking for many years, there's is something new to learn and lots of reminders of things I should be doing but have forgotten.
