Conclusion
1 Lecture 01:01

Congratulations on finishing our networking course! We hope that you enjoyed the networking skills that we humbly think will help you achieve your business and or personal goals.

We agree that the hardest part of networking can be moving out of our comfort zone and challenging ourselves to be bold, brave, passionate and persistent when it comes to networking. As such, please keep in mind that The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.  If we can be resourceful in any other ways from a networking perspective, please let us know. If there are topics that you would like us to add to this course, please let us know as we are more than happy to add many new lectures in an effort to helping you achieve your networking goals. 

Thanks again for your time, commitment and dedication, Dragos, Jimmy and Chris

About Me

I'm an Internet Entrepreneur with a background in both the Management Consulting & Telecommunications industries. The skills that I have acquired during those stints and in previous years in general have unleashed my passion to teach.

I have a wide array of skills that I share with you via my courses

(1) Social Media

One of my true passions, I have invested a lot of time building a presence online. Highlights include:

  • Creating a connection base of 100+ people in a large Management Consulting firm within weeks of starting the job.
  • Met with a handful of Managing Directors & Senior Managers after approaching them on Social Media
  • Trained Partners on how to effectively make use of LinkedIn & Twitter to network and generate leads
  • Conducted Workshops with Project Teams and Small Enterprises on the use of Twitter and LinkedIn
  • (2) Resume/CV & Interviewing

With 30+ Job applications, I have gained a deep understanding of the recruiting process

  • I have never failed to get an interview (phone or face-to-face) after submitting my Resume
  • Participated in over 20 Job Interviews & Assessment Centres
  • Worked for a leading Management Consulting firm in a highly competitive market
  • (3) Productivity
  • Heavy user of Microsoft Excel & PowerPoint. I completely rebuilt the spreadsheets inherited from one of my teams, reducing the monthly updating time by over half the time (a few business days)
  • Co-produced reports that were ultimately held by members of the Board of Directors in one of the Multinationals I worked in (using Excel & PowerPoint)
  • General productivity freak, I love technology and always look for ways to make it work for me

How I got here…

Until recently I never really envisioned myself starting my own business. In fact, it was quite the opposite - my dream was to work for a large Multinational/ Consulting company and enjoy the riches of the Corporate life…

I soon found myself in what I thought would be my "dream job" only to do work that wasn't at all fulfilling, spending hours every day commuting and paying enormous rent (almost half of my salary) in one of the largest cities in the world. I felt stuck, limited and didn't think much of my future prospects.

I look back now and find it funny how at our lowest points we make life-changing decisions. Since a few members of our Mastermind Group had launched online businesses, I decided I would give it a try. I made up my mind that whatever happened, I absolutely HAD to launch an online product before my birthday.

Within two months, I launched my first Udemy course.

One month later I decided to quit my job (to the utter amazement of my colleagues, managers, friends & family - they probably thought I was crazy) and never looked back since.

My Goal

What I aim for is simple: I want to get you real results in the fastest possible time. Whether it's improving your presence on Social Media, getting your dream job, improving your productivity or self-development, I want you to walk away from my courses with a sense of achievement.

The courses I create are structured in a step-by-step manner so that you can implement them straight away. They do require your effort & commitment, but if you do that I'm extremely confident you can get to the next level.

Ultimately, receiving a message from a satisfied student detailing how I've helped him or her is immensely gratifying, more so than any number of sales.

Get in touch!

If you're one of my students and you want to ask me a question, or you're just reading this now and think we might have something in common then post a discussion item on one of my courses - I'll be more than happy to answer & get to know you better!
