J. Kelly Hoey – Keynote Speaker Networking Expert Author

“My golden rule when it comes to networking in the digital age is simple: be yourself (that is, be human) regardless of where you meet someone, because networking online is no different than networking offline. Now more than ever we’re craving stronger human connections. The good news is that today, we have more tools to connect meaningfully with others than at any time in history. Social networks, messaging apps, co-working spaces and meetups are just a few examples.”

You can read my suggestions to allow the real you to shine online in my post published on the blog of the Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards. @Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards are an international business competition created in 2006 to identify, support and encourage projects by women entrepreneurs.
