7x24 Exchange Keynote lesson - Networking is Everything

One of the highlights of the 7x24 Exchange conference is the opening keynote. This year it was Alison Levine, the leader of the 1st all women's expedition to climb Everest.

Alison covered many topics and if you want an overview of the concepts you can read her book "On the Edge." If you want a shorter version here is a Forbes article.

The #1 thing I enjoyed from Alison's talk is her emphasis on networking. My notes from her talk.

Networking: build relationships - networking can save your life. Who can you work with outside your team. This is why the smart people go to a DC conference like 7x24 Exchange.

Instead of writing a long post on all the things I liked I am going to through up short words. Blog posts. :-)
