From My Inbox: February 1, 2024 Edition

J. Kelly Hoey - Build Your Dream Network

I was going to place this at the bottom…but heck no, stating it upfront. If you imagined I was simply a complier and curator of ???? from my inbox, recommender of non-fiction books and ranter on networking transgressions…let me dissuade you of that wee notion.

I write, not just here, but wow! I am a published author.

And, I am (finally) working on my next book.

I talk a lot about networking not simply because I wrote about it. I care about this topic. Networks and networking changed my career trajectory. AND I am accepting speaking and coaching engagements.

My focus right now is fixated on the networks high-achieving women need to build around their aspirations. This is aligned with the subject matter of book 2. It’s not all I can focus on, tho it is a big one.

My overall mission? Is to help others succeed. As I’ve been quoted as saying, you get where you’re going by helping others get to where they are going.

I have had, and continue to have the opportunity of speaking at leading organizations (Google, Oracle, Cisco, Capital One, Bank of America, Sumitomo Mitsui, Grace Hopper Celebration, Boston Beer Company, Lowe’s, Indiana Conference for Women, Bank of America…to name just a few), and working in a variety of roles from lawyer to professional development to alumni relations to leading a global business network for women to co-founder of a startup accelerator to author, I bring a non-linear wealth of experiences to the conversation.

Let’s co-create win-win opportunities which guide you towards your mission.

Now, back to regularly scheduled good ???? from my inbox:
