We met via an introduction from Wharton Professor and noted bestselling author, Dr. Adam Grant. He told me she was someone I needed to connect with. And, when Adam says that, I listen!
It was immediately obvious that Judy Robinett was a person with that special combination of huge business acumen and an even bigger heart.
Easy to see why her then soon-to-be-published book was entitled, How to Be a Power Connector. For that matter, it’s easy to see why she’s been called “The woman with the Titanium digital Rolodex®.” To put it mildly, the book lived up to — and even greatly exceeded — everything I thought it was going to be after our initial conversation.
Her background includes more than 30 years both as an entrepreneur and corporate leader, including having been CEO of both public and private companies. She’s also served on the advisory boards of a number of startup companies and venture capital firms.
I would recommend that whether one has just graduated college and is looking to accelerate their career, or is a long-time veteran of the business world, this is a book well worth studying. It’s truly a toolkit for systematically building a network that will make one’s business relationships a lot stronger, enriching, and profitable!
And, in this brief chat, Judy shares some important highlights. I have a feeling you’re going to be just as impressed by her as I am.
Yes, that was a lot of wisdom in a fairly short conversation. What key points did you take away that you can begin to apply right now?
