A chance meeting rekindled an old relationship, which will pay dividends
On Thursday 19th April I had a nice surprise which proves the theory behind my company.
I was at a Thames Valley PSA meeting when in walked a guest whom I immediately recognised. She also recognised me and told the lady who invited her "It's OK i know Tony well and he has even sat next to my bed at home...being interviewed!!!
This was back in 2010 if i remember correct and I was interviewed for the local paper, the interview was all about how i used Networking & LinkedIn to look for a job.
Fast forward to April 19th 2018 and after a brief chat she asked if i would do a follow up, but this time on local radio. so in the near future I will tell my updated story on radio, and it will revolve around how i used networking and LinkedIn to find a full time job and continue to build my Network to the point I earlier in April Launched Solid Silver Solutions, with the support of guess what....My network grown by face to face networking and then maintained via linkedIn. Real proof that I do what the company preaches and it WORKS
