    Is Building Community More Important Than Networking?

    Is Building Community More Important Than Networking?

    Anthony J.R. had his panel series, "It's All Subjective" co-sponsored by Cognac Small Talk. The trade-off is you get to stream the audio from the panel through the podcast platform, so that's exactly what this is.

    Summary: The narrative for some is that it’s tough to build a community outside of work when you’re attached to a 9 to 5 job. Others have also stated that networking sometimes can be seen as a one-sided conversation: What can you do for me? But what if you’re networking for the intent of building community and what if the community you’re building exists within your 9 to 5 job?

    Summary: Millennials have slowly started to value their free time a bit more now that they seem to be busier than ever. As some clubs, bars and lounges close and never reopen it forces millennials not to prioritize their weekends in these spaces. For some, they believe they’ve just gotten too old to be in these spaces and would much rather do something else more productive. For others, there are several other factors that play a part in their nightlife attendance.
