Kingsley Aiken’s - Networking Masterclass

Interesting interview regarding the art of networking - ‘Serendipity won’t happen while sitting on the couch!’.

Kingsley Aiken’s anecdotes about Tony O’Reilly’s exceptional networking skills, Chuck Feeney’s ethos, and how driverless cars will impact airports #1 income (parking fees) made for engaging content.

Well produced, looking forward to checking out more Everyday People podcasts!

Excellent podcast

I've known Conor for a number of years through Toastmasters and was delighted to stumble-upon this podcast he is doing. I listen to a lot of podcasts of all different shapes and sizes and what struck me here is how Conor has embraced the experience and produced an exceptional podcast. Quality-wise it reminds me of Malcolm Gladwell's 'Revisionist History' in the way it is laid-out and even thought the episodes are short they are to the point. I only see Conor's podcasting work improving based on his initial efforts. As they say in Toastmasters Conor - 'you've nailed it'.

Wonderfully delightful

Only a few episodes in, but finding the stories and the approach very refreshing and very interesting. Looking forward to seeing this podcast develop a deep vein of capturing everyday history. Conor is doing a great public service if feels here.
