10 ½ Secrets of Business Relationships and Networking - John Lynch


10 ½ Secrets of Business Relationships and Networking

How I built a world class network 7,000 kilometers from home 


John Lynch came to Krakow from New York in 1991, just after the economic transformations, and became one of the very first ex-Pats to launch a start-up in post-communist Europe.  He successfully built his business despite more hardships than most entrepreneurs face in a lifetime.  He did it in Poland, a country 7,000 kilometers from home, where he started with zero network and zero business relationships, and barely spoke the language.  Yet, today – Lynch insists that business relationships played a critical role in his success. And for the first time ever – exclusively for Kozminski alumni – John will share his 10 ½ secrets of building a world class network. 

Whether you are an entrepreneur or working for someone else, Lynch’s 10 ½ secrets are invaluable and inspiring insights from a man who has faced challenge during every mile of his incredible journey.
