About The Art of Active Networking www.TheArtofActiveNetworking.com
Mark E. Sackett created "The Art of Active Networking" through one of
his businesses, "Brainfood Creative Programs", with the sole purpose of
helping people do better.
And it works! Come see why we`ve had everyone from "Smart
Money Magazine" to "The Wall Street Journal", as well as television
stations from South Korea, cover our events around the country.
This is the most unique and connected networking event you
will attend this year. Our sole purpose is to help people do better in
this down and ever-changing economy and to work through life shifts
while meeting people you would otherwise not connect with in a unique
Daily, people call or email me and ask me to teach them how to
`network`. They ask how to come to my `class`, armed with pen and paper
all too often. Anyone is welcome to take notes but `Active Networking`
is an ART and an attitude, not a class! I say this because I
watch so many thousands of people show up and then they don’t actually
elevate it to an Art after they leave. Yes we are also a networking
event, but we’re a networking event unlike most others. What we really are is a
meeting of cool people all working towards trying to help each other do
better. We care about how your build your relationships in business and
out. So how do we do this?
We say hello with an opening line that is NOT, “So what do you do for a living?”
We engage in a conversation of any length, that is about finding a way
to first get comfortable in the conversation without selling, and second
without worrying about your endgame!
We find out what the person we are talking to needs or wants. If we can
help them with what they need and want, then maybe they won’t feel the
need to sell so hard.
We think about what I call #MYGIVE4, where we find 4 ways in which we might be able to help them:
1. Can we use our ideas and talent to help them?
2. Can we volunteer to help them with something they really need?
3. Can we offer any donation or financial assistance towards
whatever they are struggling with?
4. Can we make some powerful referrals for them using our “know, like
and trust” capital by directly open doors through personal
We followup and we practice #MYGIVE4 a minimum of 4 hours a week, from here on out!
If you want to meet people who think like this, bring your notepads,
warm handshakes and powerful passions to our upcoming events, you’ll
meet amazing people and who knows, you might also learn something. Let
us find ways to help you do better, and help us introduce this to more
We’ve had thousands of people come to our "The Art of Active
Networking" events and they love it. This is NOT one of those throw your
business card at someone and try to sell yourself events. Instead, we
ask one important question: "How can I help you do better right now?"
Helping people and businesses do better right now is all that ultimately
matters. And at the event, I will tell you why and how you can do it
At "The Art of Active Networking", I teach people how to look at
building stronger, deeper, more passionate connections in business,
life, and love. We discuss how to use social media and individual
relationships to your advantage and why that should be just a small part
of your overall plan, along with developing your own "personal brand",
no matter what it is you do or want to accomplish.
We have loads of fun doing this! This is not a boring seminar, a dry
talk, or an event full of superficial conversations. If you want to
bring The Art of Active Networking to your city, please email Mark E.

Why Do We Do It?
There was a recent article suggesting this staggering statistic: “Over
70 percent of ALL people are not happy with their job, career or with
what they are doing… and given the opportunity would change it!” Seems
like a whole lot of people do not love what they do when they wake up in

People are finding jobs, leaving jobs to follow their dreams, getting
dates, creating new ideas, investing in each other, getting roommates,
clients, connections and discovering a new way to think! Best of all
they are implementing what they learn here at "The Art of Active
Networking" and frankly it`s making their conversations much easier.
Relationships are the foundation of all business,
but they mean nothing if we stop at hello. 80% of all people who go to
networking events fail to follow-through and fail to develop any type of
genuine relationship beyond the initial connection. So frankly, what`s
So each week, Mark E. Sackett and a few special guests, will be giving a
