With a career spanning 30 years and three countries, Siobhan Fitzpatrick knows that a strong network works magic for your career, business, and social life. And while networking can happen anywhere and at any time it’s better when it’s aligned with a strategy. She has learned first-hand how to build – and sustain – a network of contacts, from not knowing anyone when she moved to New York (and later to London) to having a rewarding professional and personal life globally. Siobhan is passionate about making conscious connections and believes networking is an opportunity to help others rather than being motivated by anticipating gains.
