“Focus and building relationships and friendships. Not on transactions. Wake up every morning and look for creative ways to add value and to help everyone around you. And never underestimate the value of a favor.”
I'm Mike Dias, a Pro Audio & Consumer Electronics Executive. I am a former Sales & Marketing Director for Logitech and I'm the current Executive Director for an International Headphone Trade Organization. I frequently speak about what "Entertainers Can Teach Executives" ™ and I work with many of your favorite musicians while representing audio companies all over the world. But most importantly, I write and speak about the tools that have made me successful — Networking and Customer Relationship Management Systems.
I didn't plan on making this website. I usually save this content for keynote speeches and private coaching sessions. But with the current pandemic and global economic situation, I knew that I had something of value to share. And I knew that it would be helpful.
Networking is a learned skill. And the articles freely shared here cover concrete steps on ways to authentically and genuinely make connections. They will help you advance in both your professional and personal life.
But making connections isn't what Networking is really about. Networking is actually about following-up and making good on your commitments. For that to happen, you need to have the right systems and structures in place. That's what a CRM is for.
Anybody can talk about why you should be networking. That's easy lip service. But very few people can give you the tools to do it. That's why I'm going to show you how to build, plan, manage, and maintain your own personal CRM system.
I have made everything accessible & available with no gated content. If you enjoy what you read here and want more, simply get in touch. I'm happy to help you set up your own system or I would be honored to speak to your team.
