Build Your Dream Network: Kelly Hoey, Author, Founder, Investor

By April 20, 2019 No Comments

Liz Horowitz, the Host of the MADWomen Podcast, speaks with author, Kelly Hoey.

Kelly started her career as an attorney in Toronto and evolved through a fascinating journey to become president of 85 Broads. Then founder, angel investor, speaker and now author of a just released book called Build Your Own Dream Network – Forging Powerful Relationships in a Hyper-Connected World. Although Kelly never aspired to be an author, she found that she had a critical message.

In addition to innovative networking strategies, she shares the lessons and experiences of those in her amazing network to help people navigate careers and relationships in this omni channelled digital career age.

Kelly is also a frequent blogger and hosted the BroadMic podcast for 2 seasons. Plus, we hear how “stepping up” might mean saying “yes” to golf.
