Damon Ladd-Thomas, Masterful Networker

Master Networker Damon Ladd-Thomas as WBCX Guest

After starting my business in 1997, I knew I needed to expand my networking skills. While it’s true that making vital professional connections had been important in my previous occupation–twenty-three years as a fund raiser–starting my own company required building a new network. Soon I started studying the most widely known network gurus. I read Harvey Mackay’s classic, Dig Your Well Before You’re Thirsty. Not long afterward, I read Bob Burg’s Endless Referrals. Although I met Harvey and Bob, and established an ongoing friendship with Bob, until today I had not interviewed a networking authority in “The Communication Corner,” my weekly hour-long interview program for WBCX, 89.1 FM, “The Voice of Brenau.” Fortunately, this morning I hosted Damon Ladd-Thomas, an amazing networker.

Based in Grayson, Georgia, not far from my office in Gainesville, Georgia, Damon and I had met through the Internet, and through his primary Web sites I learned about his ability to attract, engage, and create bonds with prominent achievers. Check those two sites:

What’s most amazing: Damon’s so-called “day job” identifies him as a financial planner. While you listen to our interview, Damon will amaze you with his networking prowess. He accomplishes more with his avocation than many leaders do in their real jobs.

You will become a far more productive networker when you listen to Damon’s advice about:

*The relationship between networking and exceptional success
*How he incorporated the work/balance life style advocated by Timothy Ferriss in his book, The 4 Hour Work Week
*The power of a contact management system
*The most personal “touch base” tactics that keep us in touch with clients, colleagues, and prospects
*Creative, memorable ways to acknowledge promotions and birthdays
*What Seth Godin means about associating with “tribes”
*Why your support group should be neither too negative nor too complimentary
*Why “you-centered” networking prevails over “I-centered” flaunting of your own credentials
