12. The Culture of Networking

12. The Culture of Networking

  The Culture of Networking. This conversation was several months in the making. We had planned to do it in March, but then COVID-19 restrictions came in. We felt it would be far better if we could sit in the same room with each other and chat about networking. I’m so glad we waited. I really enjoy sitting down with my good friends, and fellow LinkedInLocal Central Coast co-hosts, Marc Charette and Isaac Feeney and gaining different perspectives. Today, it just happened to be focused on the culture of networking. I’m sure you will notice, that the way both Marc and Isaac answer questions gives you an insight into their different personalities and communication styles. That is the beauty of people. We are all different and it is these differences that help to make our experiences far more fulfilling. This is what Marc and Isaac do for me. They give me different perspectives which helps us all become better. That is why I was keen to capture and share their thoughts around networking.

11. The Power of Purpose

11. The Power of Purpose

  The Power of Purpose. Simon Neylan is an experienced executive who is currently the General Manager of Alinta Apparel, as well as the Founder and Director of two start up businesses, Jangler and Schoolink.  It is fair to say Simon is a guy who likes to keep himself busy! I first met Simon a couple of years back. I remember it so clearly. We sat in a cafe in our local area and Simon shared with me some of his story and how he was developing a mobile app that he hoped would revolutionise the act of giving. Ever since, he is someone I am proud to call a friend. Now, I don’t know why I didn’t explore it at the time, but I never asked why he was so passionate about what he was doing. It wasn’t until a conversation we had a couple of months back that he shared a deeper meaning to his work. Sharing that story and understanding how his purpose drives everything he does, is the focus of our conversation today.     If you have any questions for Brendan around this episode or generally around culture, leadership or teamwork, feel free to contact him here. ...
