I love my LinkedIn Network
This is not a post, it’s a rave… about my LinkedIn network. I love that network. I love how you can ask questions whether it is in a status update or in group discussion and have all kinds of people from all over the world share their knowledge, contacts or just chime in with their opinion.
Right now I am researching Value Chain Development, particularly in relation to Food Security, looking for innovative ideas in designing programs that benefit the small holder farmers. I like the “farm to fork” approach, when it works, when all the actors in the value chain work together and the integration is seamless, the benefits can be amazing. However, designing a programmatic approach that will act as a road map do require a lot of preparation work. It’s a good thing that I like reading and even better that I love to network. The ideas and suggestions have been quite interesting, to say the least 🙂
So here’s a question for my readers – have you used a network like this before? what benefits did you notice?
