Networking is working, whether you want it or not. This is a quote by Denise Morrison.
About 4 years ago I lived in Stockholm for about a year and I missed the opportunity to network with hundreds of people. I installed an app helping me to network, Meetup. But I deleted it shortly after, because I thought it is better to meet people face to face personally. It turned out that it doesn’t work in the digitalized city and the app helps you to find your target groups. Unfortunately I have to admit, that I have missed some really good possibilities.
