No matter how passionate you are about something you can't go it alone. There are people out there that are interested in the same things you are and some are as eager to work with you as you are with them. It is all about networking, collaboration and cooperation. Growing a network is about more than sharing information. We teach our Interviewers how to turn introductions into contacts and contacts into connections that will build a personal and professional network. One way we accomplish this is through a host of well informed and seasoned professional mentors eager to provide introductions to our young leaders, increase their profile in the communities they want to engage int and get them noticed by assisting them with a powerful Interview for Impact program.
