“There was a time when I helped Rich Stromback with a few contacts at his first World Economic Forum, almost a decade ago. In the time since he has returned the favor many times over and has turned networking and connecting into both a science and an art form. His list of contacts is ample, but more important is his keen sense of who can help whom, and his intuitive sense of who else could be of help and how to get to them. The real secret of networking is to figure out whom you can help put together, not who can help you; Rich pretty much lives that.”
