Quought for the Day #22 – Keith Ferrazzi

Being passionate about building relationships, I was quickly attracted to the work of Keith Ferrazzi and have learnt a lot from him and his book in the last year. I am excited to present Keith’s contribution to the series.

Keith Ferrazzi is one of the rare individuals to discover the essential formula for making his way to the top through a powerful, balanced combination of marketing acumen and networking savvy. Both Forbes and Inc Magazines have designated him one of the world’s most “connected” individuals. Now, as Founder & CEO of Ferrazzi Greenlight, he provides market leaders with advanced strategic consulting and training services to increase company sales, and enhance personal careers.

Ferrazzi has been widely recognized by his peers, is a frequent contributor to CNN and CNBC, and has authored numerous articles for leading business publications, including Forbes, Inc, the Wall Street Journal and the Harvard Business Review. Ferrazzi was an early leader in the quality movement as the youngest examiner of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award.

My $.02: Think about Keith’s question and you will discover the ultimate secret of networking for the master himself.
