I’m passionate about creating practical, enjoyable and customer focused digital experiences.
Bringing the human element back into networking.
Many people find networking hard, awkward and draining most of the time. Meetups and networking events have recently been springing up like mushrooms after the rain; I host one myself. Then there are apps like Tinder for professionals out there where you swipe left and right trying to find matches. But it is still hard and awkward for most people. Maybe try it yourself and tell me how it goes.
I have interviewed many many people, from connectors to people looking for connections. Interesting enough, even in the world enabled by technology, people still find word of mouth referrals give the best outcome. Computer Algorithms alone don’t make the best matchmakers. A personal introduction always leads to a higher quality conversation and connection. Ask me if you want to know more about these findings. So how can we leverage technology while maintaining the human element in the networking process to make it easier and more efficient? That’s what I’m working on right now.
