Bold Talks: J. Kelly Hoey

What’s funnier than having the networking expert who can’t get a date give a Bold Talk in the segment focused on Adventures in Love? Kelly Hoey is the author of Build Your Dream Network: Forging Powerful Relationships In A Hyper-Connected World. The strength of Kelly’s connections and her unique insights on networking explain how this former attorney pivoted to become a much sought after speaker, seasoned investor and published author. If you think networking is about schmoozing at cocktail parties or sending a flurry of LinkedIn invites to people you don’t know (or swiping left or right), think again. The key to networking in an era when everyone is posting, liking and friending fast and furiously is to be more human, to prioritize your interactions and to stay focused on what you can control. In this Bold Talk, Kelly will share how she masters networking in the modern age, and how small changes to your daily routine, combined with simple generosity, and some goal-focused planning can lead to big opportunities.
