Pulled this really great quote from Porter Gale, VP of Marketing for Virgin Airlines:
“I was recently asked to speak on social media at a conference. After some thought, I emailed the host group and inquired if I could speak on networking. The reason? My thoughts are that networking is all about making the most of random moments. It’s not always about building your Twitter following or increasing the number of folks in your G+ circles or maintaining your Klout score. Sometimes, the most powerful person in your future is randomly sitting next to you at an event, in the grocery store or on a plane.”
Let’s not forget this.
