  1. Listening to Terry Bean speak about networking and being connected using social media was a great experience. He spoke about why networking works and the first thing he said was law of attraction. This is what you think about and is emtionally involved in and what Terry meant is ask and you shall recieve. The second reason why networking works is law of reciprocity and this is when givers gain, you give back and in return you get connections back. Lastly law of generosity is what you give then the universe gives back. Being in PR you have to have a thirst for knowledge and be ok with making mistakes but being able to correct them. I’ve had the previlage of recieving networking tips by a spokeman that knows all about being connected and after being connected you must follow up no more than 72 hours after meeting someone.

  2. Listening to Terry Bean speak was a great experience. He gave so many good tips on networking in PR and why networking is so important. Based on universal laws, law of attraction is the first one Bean talked about. Law of attraction is what you think about and what your emotionally involved in and in Terrys words that means ask and you shall recieve. Second is law of reciprocity which means when givers give in turn you gain connections. Lastly law of generosity, what I give to you the universe gives back. The best way to build relationships is networking. Working in PR you have to have a thirst for knowledge and make mistakes but know how to correct them. After meeting someone that can be useful for good connections it’s a must to follow up know later then 72 hours. I got so much from his speech and I’m glad I came to the meeting.
