PM Point of View

“The Practical Art of Networking” with John Gilroy

PMs hear “network” and think (network) diagrams, but “networking” is what needs to ring loudly to them – we must communicate, be ready to learn, have experts to call, and of course, always build stakeholder relationships. Good networking skills are essential. The wider your network, the more effective you are at all levels. In this podcast, John Gilroy, DC networker and social media guru tells us how to do it with five easy steps.
