Carmel Murphy – Networking Queen
Address: Auckland, Tauranga
Business Name: Carmel Murphy – Networking Queen

Carmel Murphy has a passion for getting you comfortable with meeting new people and making new contacts.

Because kiwis enjoy doing business with people they know, like and trust.

And networking is a great platform to show others who you are and what you’re about – in other words, show off your personal brand.

Carmel Murphy is no stranger to feeling out of place, awkward, shy or fearful of networking. Just eight years ago she was terrified of strangers, to the point where she had panic attacks, would stumble over words, shake, quiver, go blank, endure many sleepless nights, even hyperventilate in anticipation of simply meeting someone in a cafe let alone attending an event.

So if you hate networking, don’t know what to do, don’t see the point, think it takes too long, is boring or you’re feeling scared, reach out to Carmel Murphy who has the tools and tips to accelerate you on your networking journey.
