|Helping New Zealanders connect to each other|
New Zealand does not have a well developed culture of networking. I can only think that the small size of the NZ market is the cause of that. Some of our top private schools have always encouraged networking, but the basis of that effort was to build only through close and well developed personal networks. New Zealand Universities have been slow to learn the lesson of keeping alumini connected and informed.
There are three immediate benefits.
As a Open Future New Zealand member you can invite your own NZ contacts to be members. This is a helpful service you are doing for them. Lots of people must be doing that because every day 5-6 more people want to join.
There is a real need to connect to people who have small numbers of LinkedIn connections, and to people who live in small towns and in occupations that are not top of the mind regarding internet use. DIVERSITY is the key to making the Open Future New Zealand network more useful to all of us. You can help, by making your own personal network more diverse.
There is a good deal of practical and helpful advice in the topics below for you.
If you are an open networker, you can register with us, and that will increase the number of invitations you get.
