EPNW: Podcasting – The Indispensible Tool for Building Relationships

NOTE: I am offering an on-line 1 hour webinar for that goes into detail on how to use podcasting to find a job or grow your business.

Learn how to use podcasting to build relationships to grow your career or business. This is the perfect tool to open doors to the people, and businesses, you want to know. It is all about having conversations with the people you want to know and building friendships. Having an audience of listeners is almost beside the point.

You can find more details on how to use podcasting for business and careers here: http://bit.ly/gttkny

You can check out my own podcast shows to get an idea of how I use this tool for both growing my career and finding business.

I am eager to make a presentation of the value of podcasting for networking to any group that might be interested. I can speak in person to groups in the greater Puget Sound area and can give webinars to groups further afield. Just e-mail podcasting@surkan.com if you would like to inquire about having me speak.


  1. Michael,
    Talking about the value of talking so much - you remind me of the book Fierce Conversations by Susan Scott. If you haven't read it, I would highly recommend taking a look at it. I really like how you bring out the value of conversations as the key to meaningful business relationships. Thank you for all you bring to the table!

  2. Having a strong social network of professionals is essential to catapult an individual's career, because a career without a supportive network of contacts will be crippled in spite of the amount of personal talent. I am a tech guy myself and haven't realized the use of podcasts as a tool for knitting such network. How refreshing.
