About

Hi Friends, I'm Beth Bridges, The Networking Motivator.

I've attended over 2,500 networking events in the last ten years. I've interacted with tens of thousands of people in person and through social media. I created the Five-Part Networking Success Plan and wrote my top-selling book "Networking on Purpose" after watching new and experienced business people struggling to network effectively.

As a speaker, author and trainer, I show people how to use my Five Part Networking Success Plan to build their own highly responsive and powerful network. But enough about me.

It's About You, Actually

I know that at the core of it, you're interested in what I can do for you (which is an important principal to keep in mind when you're networking), so let me start there. You can get a lot more about me and my experience further down the page.

My networking and business philosophy is to share as much of my insights, ideas and experiences with you as I can, for free. Then if you want more, you can invest in my book, engage me as a speaker or bring me on as a trainer for you or staff.

About Beth Bridges, the Networking Motivator

"I can count on one hand the people who truly understand 'networking.' Beth Bridges is one of them."

~Todd Schnick, CEO, The Intrepid Group, LLC, Business Talk Show Host

Beth Bridges is the Networking Motivator and author of "Networking on Purpose: A Five-Part Success Plan to Build a Powerful and Profitable Business Network" which reached #1 in two categories in its first week on Amazon. She has been called "one of the world's great networkers" by Bob Burg, New York Times bestselling author of The Go-Giver.

She was the Membership Director and Chief Networking Officer of the Clovis Chamber of Commerce for nearly 11 years. During that time, she attended more than 2,500 networking events including mixers, trade shows, leads clubs, association meetings and chamber of commerce events. She has interacted with tens of thousands of people in person and online and is recognized as a business networking leader by her peers and chamber members. Audiences consistently rave about her high energy, encouraging and valuable presentations. She encounters people who, months and years later, are still using and benefiting from the concrete and actionable ideas within the plan.

"It had to be fate ... or networking! Beth has been an inspiration since she sat by me at a writers conference five years ago."

~Denise Lee Branco, Award-Winning Author of Horse at the Corner Post: Our Divine Journey, www.HorseAtTheCornerPost.com

"When I met Beth, I watched her sincere, natural and relaxed way of interacting with people and I learned so much!"

~Melissa Tosetti, Founder of The Savvy Life, international bestselling author of "Living The Savvy Life"

Beth built and managed the Chamber's social media program which was named by OnlineMBAPage.com as one of the Top 100 Social Media Friendly Chambers of Commerce in the United States.

She is an involved member of several of her local chambers of commerce including the Clovis and Fresno Chambers, is a member of the Fresno Women's Network and is a board member with the Fresno County Women's Chamber of Commerce.

"Beth has been teaching business people how to effectively network in real world situations for many years and is widely recognized for her passion and proficiency in this often misunderstood skill set."

~Dale Bierce, Sandler Training

Beth is a contributor to multiple projects including Todd Schnick's ebook "Kicking Fears Ass" and his IntrepidNow Network. She is a guest blogger for Nimble.com (the only CRM/networking organizing software she uses and highly recommends) and is an Expert Author for EzineArticles.com

She has been interviewed on CentralValleyTalk.com, Connect with Me TV, Central Valley Today and Frank Kenny's Chamber Focus Show. Beth has also been a regular guest lecturer at local universities including Heald College, DeVry University, Institute of Technology, ITT Tech and CSU Fresno.

Beth has shared her networking strategy with corporations, colleges and universities, and business associations. New business owners, sole proprietors, independent sales agents, corporate executives and managers, solopreneurs and network marketers have all benefited from this practical but powerful system. She trains individuals, companies, and organizations on using her deliberate, intentional and strategic system for networking on purpose.

"Beth is emerging as a leader in the Chamber industry."

Steve Snyder, former Vice President, Western Association of Chamber Executives

Beth is widely recognized by chamber of commerce executives across North America as a leading networking authority. She is now the Marketing Manager and Bio Connections Engineer for a rapidly-growing technology company.

On a personal note, Beth was a high-school cross country team member for four years, but quit running in her twenties and thirties because she thought she was too old. Eight years ago, she realized that was ridiculous and started running again. In November 2014, she was awarded the Masters Women's Runner-Up in the Valley Runner of the Year Series. In the last two years, she overcame a fear of riding in traffic to begin competitive road cycling, then realized she might as well shed her crippling, twenty-year fear of water, began swimming, and five months later completed her first triathlon. A month later, she competed again and swam in the ocean to do it."

She has created an inspirational keynote around this experience, designed to encourage, uplift and motivate your audience to conquer their networking fears.
