The Importance of Networking

What is a network?

A network is a group of people or resources that can help make information and opportunities more accessible to each other.

How can this help me to take action?

Networking can give you ideas, give you access to knowledge and experience, help you gain support for your project, and finally, take the best action possible.

Identify Your Networks

There are many types of networks. Informal networks include friends and family, and more formal networks include business contacts, people you meet at conferences, or people you know through volunteer work.
