Proven networking strategies to achieve lifetime professional success
In today’s competitive market, the typical ways of communicating don’t serve the purpose of building strong, long-term connections. We need to build collaborative relationships that are memorable and influence others to aid in achieving our goals. What is the first step to connecting with the right person?

Hi! My name’s Leslie Grossman and I am a leadership strategist, keynote speaker, consultant/coach and serial entrepreneur. I believe that collaboration, authentic communication and trusted connections – the 3 ‘C’s – transform careers, businesses and the world. They are at the core of the strategy of my newest book “Link Out” which I credit for enabling me to create a life and career I love.
A serial entrepreneur, I started my first business at 24 and learned the magic of linking out from mentors, clients and collaborative leaders. Linking out was the tipping point for the success of all my businesses, and my leadership roles at organizations like NAWBO and the Women’s Leadership Forum. I credit my entourage, a concept I share in LINK OUT, for propelling the growth of Women’s Leadership Exchange, a national conference program reaching 65,000 women entrepreneurs and professionals which I co-founded in 2002, and my marketing agency Communications/Marketing Action. Today, at Leslie Grossman Leadership I help companies and organizations succeed by training their teams in the “Link Out” leadership and business development principles.
