More About This Title It's Who You Know: Make Networking Work for You


Who do you need around you?

Networking is an essential skill; it's the key to your success. So why are so many of our connections superficial and transactional? And why do they get us nowhere in our personal or professional life? Maybe because we've lost sight of the fact that it's not about the quantity of connections you make, but the quality of the relationships you build and nuture.

From internationally-acclaimed entrepreneur and Fortune 500 mentor Janine Garner, It's Who You Know shows you how to build, manage and leverage your power network to create opportunities and drive success.

Networking still matters, but your network matters even more. With It's Who YouKnow, you can learn to connect with those who will add real value to your professional and personal development. 

Originally published in 2017, this book has been reviewed and redesigned to become part of the Wiley Be Your Best series - aimed at helping readers acheive professional and personal success. 


Janine Garner is a leading international expert on leadership, influence and collaboration, the author of From Me to We, and the founder and CEO of LBDGroup.
