Discover how to turn your connections into a resource to achieve your personal and organizational goals. So You Think You Can't Network is richly illustrated with stories. Many of these stories are from people who attended her workshops in Africa, Australia and Europe.
"A powerful insight into what networking is really about - connectivity, honesty, passion and courage to have things done because our ideas matter and are bigger than ourselves." - Kinga Jelinska, international reproductive rights activist.
