I'm Emily, and I work for a company called MCI, who are working with the Forum for Global Challenges on this exciting new venture - the new eCommunity!
With a background in Events & Marketing, and having worked within a member-based organisation myself, one of my objectives is to help demonstrate the value of a collaborative network. In my experience, you learn the most from those you regularly network with, and more often than not, you increase your business via word-of-mouth from those connections you've established within said network.
The power of connections, both face-to-face and online, is indisputable, especially in the modern day. So I thoroughly recommend you get involved in the discussions; have your say, challenge opinions, grow your contact base and in so doing, enhance your professional profile.
