Business networks shine during a bad month for banking

It has been a bad month for banking. A US Senate panel has alleged that JP Morgan Chase bank has been hiding huge trading losses. On the other side of the Atlantic, KPMG has reported that the UK’s five biggest banks saw a 40% slump of their statutory profits in 2012, when compared with the previous year.

The global economic crisis has changed businesses’ reliance on banks – and governments – forever. Thankfully a new book, The 5 Star Business Network, has stepped in to fill the void. Acclaimed business author Vivek Sood answers today’s most pressing questions. How can companies draw strength from the business networks of the past? How can they maintain momentum in the face of the cyclical nature of success? And how do companies break into the key business networks that will support them to thrive?

With sources of traditional support seeming to falter more each day, this is the book that no CEO who wants their business to succeed in 2013 should be without. The 5 Star Business Network will be released in April 2013.

    Most professionals don’t do enough networking, and their worst business networking mistake is that they don’t build a professional network until they really need one – and that’s a bit late.

    You can become a magnet which attracts people and resources if you invest the time and energy necessary to develop a strong network of contacts. Business networking requires a leap for many professionals. Depending on your personality, meeting strangers and greeting people that you hardly know can be stressful and even – scary.

    Just when I was thinking about the Business Networks I found your post through a LinkedIn. I’d been thinking about how the feedback I give has changed as my use of social media has increased. I find that I’m reading a lot,
    anyway wonderful post. Thanks
