Publisher, Canadian Design and Construction Report
Tim Klabunde and I met several years ago at a Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) event. In the attached excerpt form his successful book, Network Like an Introvert: A new way about thinking about business relationships, you’ll see how he discovered the most effective approach to business networking is to think and focus on how you can truly serve others.
A simple idea, but Tim has exercised it with such success he has managed to build the largest online LinkedIn.com network, the Design and Construction Network. He has also enjoyed career success, along with a rewarding family and personal life.
Tim can take indirect credit for the creation of the Canadian Design and Construction Report. Over lunch in Washington, D.C., he proposed that I publish an online publication in conjunction with the Design and Construction Network. We developed the Design and Construction Report as a U.S.-focused publication, which we will relaunch within the next year.
The Canadian version of the publication, which you are reading, has been successful in part because it focuses on your needs and interests.
You can order Tim’s book through Amazon.com and other book retailers. It is worth every cent.
