This week Dr. Misner wants to discuss three trends for business networking in the next 10 years:
- Integration of face-to-face and online networking opportunities, including niche social networks like BNI Connect.
- Education. More private companies will offer training in business networking, because universities won’t. Consumers need to be informed: make sure the training company is qualified.
- Association. So far attempts to create associations of professional networking groups have failed. They sometimes create conflicts of interest, which may be why.
