»Networking is not easy, it requires a large amount of energy, but it should be a natural part of our relationships. Networking can be used to turn crisis into opportunity, or a perceived disadvantage into an advantage. Personal contacts can provide support, feedback, insights, resources and information. The main power of networking is that it helps us achieve both our personal and professional goals,« stresses Prof. Purg.
