According to Scott Gerber, founder of the Young Entrepreneur Council, there are two major tools required for being a better networker:
1. access to resources, and
2. abandon your agenda.
Aim to help and connect other people before looking for something in exchange. The person who is known for connecting others ends up being top-of-mind when opportunity strikes in the future.
Shared workplaces provide access to resources and spaces designed for fortuitous encounters, so the master networker can thrive.
