This is the part of the organization that could be titled “The Resource Center”. This component of the organization is focused on providing practical Networking Know-how along with opportunities to put it in practice so that our guests can own the information they learn and apply it in real-life situations. This offering trains interested parties on tools, tips and techniques that will improve your ability to network successfully.
HOW VALUABLE IS IT?
No one said it better than Allan Bloom when he wrote "Education is the movement from darkness to light". We have found the definition of “Networking” in the dictionary was incorrect. Therefore it was no longer a surprise to find that ALL existing materials on Networking vary between a “collection of successful actions” and “opinions”. While a successful action might do for Person A, it may just not work for Person B at all. As for “opinions”, they are just that: “opinions”.
WHAT SET THIS APART?
A truly great amount of effort was made to help deal with the above situation. The Cardinal Rules of Networking were researched and found. A correct and usable definition for networking was developed, along with its basic laws and principles. Lastly, all this data was collected into a book that anyone seeking to learn more about networking can use.
HOW DO I ACCESS THIS INFORMATION?
The knowledge is now there are ready. One can reach for it through the following channels:
- Articles, blogs and other writings found primarily on LinkedIn (under Basile Lemba)
- Our soon-to-be-released N etworking book
- The Networking Classes we offer which schedule can be found on this website
- Our Annual Business Development Conference which is “heavy” on Networking.
- The onsite Networking Classes and Consulting we offer and
- A Retreat where people truly serious about networking travel to an exotic/nice location and spend a week or less to fully master Networking.
“Basile's Networking Breakfast and Class are invaluable! I made great connections with individuals that helped both my personal and business life. His wisdom about what networking really means raises the bar for all of us. Learning to help others be successful is a place every business person should start from. This is the key to success. I highly recommend Basile's events for those who want not only to be successful in business, but in life.”
