Networking : Remote access, Online, Brick and mortar
Sunday was Table Topic master at an TM club from Suceava, in Romanian. Once in a mont it is all online. The other meeting is in a library. I got to be General Evaluator of the meeting. After the meeting, email and message with the President, whom I did not know before. Or not well. Now, we got to know each other a lot better.
And this is what classically is called Networking but in fact, all three were for me. Oregon, Rumania and the Division event in South England.
All three events, this week were in fact for me Networking! And I did not do it for the project, I have to deliver, but they all will serve me well for it. These days, Networking is not only all in one room. The modern ages lets us network with Toastmasters from Oregon, then Toastmasters from Moldova and then those in South of England. My reasons to get to know, then keep contact, are not the same as from someone who needs to find a job, a workshop, or get in somewhere new.
I mostly need contact. Pathways is showing me ways, I follow my way, we helps each other. I mean, Pathways and me. Projects are clever and may help in different ways different folks.
