You can never be too rich, too thin, or too connected

Today, I will be delivering this talk at the International Association of Business Communicators- NSW Chapter in Sydney. Please visit their site if you are working in the  communication industry or profession- it’s a valuable network and a knowledge transfer agency- as per one of the messages in my talk.

The slide show below was not designed for presenting via overhead slides, I won’t be using any preferring to make a heart to heart connection with the audience instead, and will be elaborating with stories from the trenches. These are just some preparation notes shared here so others can also benefit from it ( Sharing the Whuffie in other words!)
