Patrick Ewers is an executive coach and the founder of Mindmaven, a company that helps professionals generate more opportunities by introducing experience-based relationship management — and — helps them drive growth by increasing their overall mindshare within their network. He was called Silicon Valley’s top relationship management expert by Forbes and was also one of LinkedIn’s earliest team members, where he was responsible for launching and building up “LinkedIn for Groups.”

  • Why good things happen when you do counterintuitive things (which Patrick learned firsthand when he left LinkedIn)
  • Spending 10-20% of your time to focus on your relationships and how that will dramatically impact your business
  • Why staying top of mind is a great strategy to drive referrals
  • Building a list of 30 people called “legends” and emailing one a day to really build that connection over time
