The world of work is consistently changing. How things were done decades ago is completely different from how things are done today. With the 4th Industrial Revolution looming, it’s important that we always open ourselves up to learning new ways of doing things and one of the most crucial skills we need in our careers and businesses is networking.
While most people agree with the cliché, ‘it’s not what you know, it’s who you know’ - whether we like it or not, it carries more weight today.
