Caelen and Owen headed down to BizCamp Limerick at the weekend, and as promised, it was a very productive Saturday. Owen has put together a review of Anton Mannering’s (CEO of social network platform Udoogoo) talk:
There was a great buzz at Bizcamp Limerick this weekend which took place in Kemmy Business School in University of Limerick. One of my favourite speakers at the event was Anton Mannering, who runs the All Island Digital Media Network and is CEO of Udoogoo. He gave a talk on networking and emphasized the importance of giving first when you met new people.
I thought Anton verbalized what networking is at its best- meeting new people, helping them when you can and asking for help. Anton gave us practical advice on how to think about networking, emphasizing the importance of reciprocity, in other words, find ways to return the favours that other people do for you. He showed us that networking in this way helps you grow your business and develop new opportunities.
I came away from the talk inspired, ready to shake hands, meet people and help whoever I could.
