Andy Lopata: The Benefits of Positive Business Relationships in Challenging Times 

Andy Lopata, labeled by the Financial Times as ‘one of Europe’s leading business networking strategists’, is a master of strengthening business relationships.

A renowned international speaker, he is a Fellow of the Professional Speaking Association (PSA) and is also one of just 23 recipients of the PSA’s top honour, the Award of Excellence.

Andy is the author of three books on building professional relationships and leveraging your network, and enjoys mentoring senior leaders and hosting retreats that focus on tapping into the power of your network.

Andy joins me today to discuss how his business has evolved over the last 21 years and why he was prompted to become his own boss.

He dives into the misconceptions of what networking is, why he coaches senior professionals on the importance of building and nurturing relationships, and how to break down silos and tap into the power of support networks.

Andy also shares how he’s dealing professionally and personally with the current pandemic crisis and why it’s vital to frame your reaction to these difficult times with humanity and kindness.

“You deal with setbacks by looking forward.”
