Building Good Relationships Is the Goal of Great Networking

Marketing Podcast with Dr. Ivan Misner

NetworkingIn this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I interview Dr. Ivan Misner who is the founder and chief visionary officer of the business networking organization BNI. BNI was founded in 1985, the organization now has over 9,500 chapters throughout every populated continent of the world. Last year alone, BNI generated almost 12.3 million referrals resulting in $16.7 billion dollars worth of business for its members.

Dr. Misner’s Ph.D. is from the University of Southern California. He is a New York Times Bestselling author who has written 24 books including one of his latest books – Who’s in Your Room? He is also a columnist for Entrepreneur.com and has been a university professor as well as a member of the Board of Trustees for the University of La Verne.

Called the “Father of Modern Networking” by CNN and one of the “Top Networking Experts” by Forbes, Dr. Misner is considered to be one of the world’s leading experts on business networking.

Questions I ask Dr. Ivan Misner:

  • Networking gets a bad wrap sometimes, how have you been able to make it an intentional practice?
  • Part of the BNI model is weekly in-person meetings, how has BNI evolved during the time of no meetings?
  • You wrote a book about a year ago with your wife, Healing Can Be Easy: How I Healed Cancer with the Bodymind. Obviously there was a physical journey in there but then to take it to the mind as well; I wonder if you could share some thoughts on that experience.

What you’ll learn if you give a listen:

  • How the BNI model can assist in relationship building during networking
  • How building relationships is better during networking than being transactional
  • The significant benefit your network and referrals can bring when they are your support network

How to Get the Best Out of Your Virtual Meetings

Marketing Podcast with Mike Fraidenburg

online meetings In this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I interview Mike Fraidenburg, a certified mediator, natural resource scientist, and former government executive with broad experience helping organizations and executives who are struggling to work effectively in environments with a lot of conflicts.

Mike’s specialties are assessment and implementation of community-building programs to establish and then maintain positive working relationships across the boundaries between organizations and the community that cares about what you do.

His book Mastering Online Meetings: 52 Tips to Engage Your Audience and Get the Best Out of Your Online Meeting was published in January this year.

Questions I ask Mike Fraidenburg:

  • Meetings for a lot of people have always been horrible regardless of the format because meetings, in general, are not run that well and now have this technology in the way. Do you feel as though this is going to make people up their game and redefine the meeting in general?
  • Are there some tips for getting more engagement particularly when you are trying to brainstorm or collaborate?
  • Would you say there are different rules for different size audiences?

What you’ll learn if you give a listen:

  • The difference between synchronous and asynchronous meetings
  • Mike’s favorite tools for different meeting types
  • How you can make sure everyone can participate even when they can’t attend the actual meeting
