Formal networking is dumb. It is impersonal, one-sided, and even a little awkward. Good networking comes from building awesome communities where it is a natural byproduct. A community should be a safe space where peers can communicate ideas, create lasting friendships, and empower others to break out of their comfort zone. These traits naturally occur in the presence of trust and inclusion, but are rare in impersonal communities. From local groups to national organizations to podcast communities, our panel of successful leaders will discuss how to create a community that people absolutely love.
