Networking For Nice People Manifesto
Networking for nice people is a community of like-minded, kind, smart, connected people who wish to learn and economically and emotionally grow from one another. Networking is about connection, collaboration and community. We ask questions and actively listen. When we give, give, give, we get. We are honest, sincere and helpful. We provide mutually beneficial introductions for people who wish to connect. We build our networks before we need them. We gain respect by giving respect. We understand networking is a two-way street. We believe a rising tide lifts all boats. We gravitate towards the wallflowers and make them feel welcome. We get uncomfortable to meet and achieve our goals. We are fiscally responsible to the stakeholders in our lives. We live in the give. We spread kindness through knowledge and empathy. We balance in-person and online connections.
We are rebooting networking. Join us.
Hi, I'm Dave Delaney
I'm a keynote speaker on business networking and social media, a digital marketing consultant, and the author of New Business Networking, a book all about improving your professional networking online and offline.
I co-founded two annual conferences, created two monthly networking events, and I love to help and connect people. I also love to perform improv comedy. I even teach businesses how they can use it in the workplace to improve communication and company culture.
I live in Nashville, Tennessee with my awesome wife, Heather, and kick-ass kids, Ella and Sam. If you ever hear me use the words, "y'all" and "eh?" in the same sentence it is because I'm Canadian. Toronto is my hometown, it's not called "The6" no matter what Drake says (sorry, that's just how I feel about it. :)
I created Networking For Nice People because I am fed up with spammy, pushy people who think they can sell you things seconds after meeting you. I bet you feel this way too, right? Networking is about helping others first. It's about growing and nurturing relationships. That's why we are here together.
