Dear Student,

Did you read Pam Smyth’s letter about how Networking University has changed her life? At first, she thought it would be a waste of time to listen to someone who was not in her organization. She was pretty sure many of the topics were not for her.

If you didn’t see her letter, I invite you to go back and look at p. 9 of the Sept/Oct 2007 issue. Our faculty members, including Laura Kall, Steve Siebold and Todd Falcone, are making major contributions to Pam’s life. Students may not realize how good this makes all of us faculty and staff feel about the hours we commit to preparing material and classes for you. We are all professional networkers first, and we are devoting this time to the education and training of others because we sincerely want them to be even more successful than we are.

This issue of Networking Times is about the younger people entering our profession. If you are among this younger generation, I invite you to let me know how Networking University can best serve you. We currently have many courses, both live and in our e-learning library, that we know will be helpful, but perhaps the way we are presently delivering them may not suit your learning style. Internet marketing, blogging and online social networking offer us new opportunities to explore. We are looking to you, Generation Y networkers, to guide us in how we can expand our curriculum, and I welcome your ideas in this area.

Be sure to take a look at the live events we have scheduled for 2008, such as the party plan training seminars with Karen Phelps, “Mental Martial Art” with Brian Adams and “The Money Chi Principles” with John Alexandrov. Each time you attend a Networking University–sponsored live event, you receive four credits per day towards your certification. In addition, with each credit you receive a free one-month membership to Networking University (tuition price is $19.97 a month). If you sign up for a three-day event, you receive twelve credits plus a one-year scholarship to Networking University, a $197 value! I can’t think of a better way to begin the New Year.

Remember: education changes everything.

See you in class!

Glenn Head
Dean, Networking University
