Welcome to the Christmas edition of the Leadership Pack (December 2017).
My life has been enriched by the people I know and I have come to the conclusion that the success I have achieved in both my careers has often been due to the people I know. I wanted to share with you my ideas and tips which will hopefully help you benefit from networking, especially if you struggle at conventions to network.
This edition may amount to 11 pages but there is so much more with the links I have included and which if clicked on will give you even more: tips, insights and inspiration. I hope this pack inspires you to be more and do more for the people you support.
