The tactical, practical and highly actionable advice Pollard provides introverts will not only arm them with science-backed processes and greater networking success, but dare I say it will leave the extroverts shaking their heads, wondering how they can capture some of this magic.

As an introverted executive operating in a seemingly extroverted world, I struggle with many of the challenges that Pollard outlines in The Introvert’s Edge to Networking. Using real-world examples and powerful evidence, this book has given me the tools to leverage authenticity and take a smarter approach to optimize my networking ability.

Introverts know that networking is crucial to career success, yet they are rightly reluctant to morph into extroverts to get it done. This engaging book draws from the author’s own learnings and the struggles and triumphs of others to show us how introverts can use their natural strengths to become superb networkers.
