Professional Relationships Matter
You can often tell the quality of a leader not just from the calibre of his or her relationships, but by the ease with which they draw on them and the speed and willingness with which people respond.
Professional relationships lie at the heart of executive success. Despite this, many leaders leave their professional relationships to chance and actively discourage their staff from forming strong bonds.
In this new book professional relationships expert Andy Lopata explores just how important strong relationships are and how to build a network of people who are:
. In a position to support you
. Want to support you
. Know exactly what support you need
A specialist in professional relationships and networking for over 20 years, Andy Lopata was called 'one of Europe's leading business networking strategists' by the Financial Times and 'a true master of networking' by The Independent and Forbes.com.
A very experienced international speaker, Andy is the author of five books, has been quoted in a number of other business books and regularly quoted in the international press.
Andy is a Fellow and a board member of the Professional Speaking Association UK & Ireland (PSA) and a Fellow of the Learning and Performance Institute as well as a Master of the Institute for Sales Management. He is also one of just 26 recipients of the PSA's top honour, the Award of Excellence.
