A strange thing to say perhaps but that is the exact view of Thomas Power co founder and Chairman of Ecademy
I met Thomas last night at the Weybridge Ecademy and he gave a powerful talk about the value of networks , being connected and the value of being connected.
The central message to us was that whilst our children understand the value of networks and we need to learn from them. In addition that well connected people never have to look for work or contracts as these will find them some how.
I had a one to one 5 minute chat after the event and he shared some tips with me on how I can resolve a current business challenge by growing my network.
Thomas said to me, Ida you can’t be that well connected if you can’t resolve that challenge through your network!
