He's an American. So as some of my friends said, you have the feeling of shallowness in relationships. Not all his pieces of advice would work in Europe, where I think it takes longer to build a relationship, but which will ultimately be much more meaningful and deep. Here are, however, some things that are worth to be noted:

- if you never ask, the answer is always no
- respect the goalkeeper's role and make them your friend
- the follow-up is the hammer and nails of your networking tool kit
- the most memorable gifts I have ever received are those whose value could not be measured in terms of dollars and cents
- a commando knows that you have to get people to like you first. The sales come later—in the follow-up discussions you have after the conference.
- If 80 percent of success is, as Woody Allen once said, just show-ing up, then 80 percent of building and maintaining relationships is just staying in touch.
- The lesson? Even a Harvard MBA or an invitation to Davos is no substitute for personal initiative.
