"The most powerful lesson about networking is that people are generally really good and kind and nice. And if you ask for help, they'll help you. If you need an introduction for a valid reason then they'll help you. So keep your contacts safe and secure, keep in touch with people for no apparent reason, and when the time comes, ask for the help that you need. That's my best networking advice." - Phil McCauley, serial entrepreneur, non-executive director at Mediaspace.global.
