A survey conducted by The Icehouse shows that an overwhelming number of New Zealand businesspeople see networking as a key part of their professional development and business success. However, the same people agree that they can improve their networking skills.

One of the developing trends I have been noticing is the big rise in uber-connected people leveraging their social and business networks for a common cause. I support this but wonder if some of the media ripples from the all of this activity are being somewhat discounted?
