Celebrated authors of “The Frog and Prince” – one of the best networking books in the world – expand to the United States with their new release “Work the Pond”. I highly recommend this.

Back in 2003, I attended a pivotal event at the Vancouver Enterprise Forum. Normally, these events generally follow a predictable pattern. People fill in the room, buy a drink and wander aimlessly.
