Summary

Catalyst will transform your approach to networking, making it fun and infinitely more effective.

A good business developer, prospector and networker knows how to create a positive connection with the people they meet. They are the catalyst that creates a chemical reaction between strangers, and they know how to convert these opportunities into new business.

Louisa Clarke and David Kean have spent their careers catalysing strangers into contacts and converting contacts into clients - and even into friends. They have built successful businesses together using the proven techniques in this book, and they have helped hundreds of companies around the world win billions in new business by applying the same methods. 

Catalyst is full of illustrative anecdotes, hard-won wisdom and a step-by-step methodology. Whatever industry you work in, if you need more clients to buy your services and you're not sure how to find them, convince them or win them, this is the book for you. Follow this approach and new business will come. You might even make some friends along the way. 

For many people, networking, prospecting and selling are scary. If the word 'networking' makes you recoil, if the word 'prospecting' conjures up terrifying spectres of endless cold calls, and if you run for the hills at the mention of 'sales', this book will be balm for you. Because, whilst it doesn't make it effortless, it does make it easy.

one of the best books I've read

Packed full of brilliant guides, toolkits and methodologies which I wish I'd read years ago.

All delivered with some good anecdotes and humour, highly engaged throughout and the most notes I've taken from a book ever!
