In today’s episode, I speak to the wonderful Kelly Hoey!
She was named “1 of the 10 Most Well-Connected People in New York City’s Startup Scene”, according to Inc., “1 of the 100 Most Influential Tech Women On Twitter”, according to Business Insider, and “1 of 5 Women Changing the World of VC/Entrepreneurship”, according to Forbes.
Formerly an attorney in a top law firm, Kelly has gone on to co-found a startup accelerator, is a LP investor in several emerging tech funds, a keynote speaker, and the published author of “Build Your Dream Network: Forging Powerful Relationships In a Hyper-Connected World.” A book in which she shares her expertise on the ever so powerful, and often underrated skill of networking.
We spoke about why networking is so important and discussed some of the common pitfalls people make when building connections online. Kelly put to rest the idea that networking is a skin-deep, momentary activity we engage in, and explained why it’s an ever-evolving game of give and take. We also discussed some of the important differences between women and men when it comes to networking and spoke about her latest survey which seeks to explore these gender differences in detail – I encourage everyone listening to sign up, and for all of those who are keen to do so, you can find the link below:
