Most connected millennial’ to share secrets
When it comes to connecting and networking, Jared Kleinert is a leading light — not only in building a world-class network, but doing so speedily.
Referred to as “the most connected millennial” by USA Today, the entrepreneur and award-winning author is returning to Bermuda to speak at a public seminar where he will share insights, secrets and tips.
Although still only 22, Mr Kleinert has an impressive track record that includes co-authoring the book 2 Billion Under 20, being the founder and author of 3 Billion Under 30, and a TED Talk speaker. In addition, he has been named “Champion for Humanity” by the United Nations.
Among the information he will share at the seminar is how he amassed a portfolio of clients that includes New York Times bestselling authors, former Fortune 500 executives, and Emmy award-winning journalists, even though he never attended college or worked for a major corporation.
The event comes nine-months after he spoke to a packed audience at the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute. That talk sold out within an hour. Encouraged by the interest Mr Kleinert, BUEI and Par 3 Consulting, run by Bermuda’s Anthony Mocklow, have partnered again to put on the new seminar at City Hall.
The September 10 event is titled “BUEI Talks presents: how to build a world-class network in record time.”
It is aimed at business owners, entrepreneurs, chief executive officers, together with senior executives, and sales, marketing and human resources leaders and managers. It will feature information useful to anyone who is tasked with identifying, connecting with and recruiting people and brands in their community and industry to work for mutually beneficial campaigns.
The event will look at how to build “a world-class network in record time and leverage new-found connections to earn hundreds of thousands of dollars” in new business leads, and partner and collaborate with top talents.
Describing part of his own journey of success, Mr Kleinert said that as a teenager he was fortunate enough to study under David Hassell, who has been described by Forbes as “The most connected man you don’t know in Silicon Valley’, and Keith Ferrazzi, the New York Times bestselling author of Never Eat Alone and former chief marketing officer of Deloitte.
“Now that I’ve built a great professional network and have been able to experience unique opportunities even in my early twenties, I’m excited to share what I know about networking and relationship-building with the general business community in Bermuda,” he said.
He said attendees at the seminar will learn:
• the three basic steps to building a world-class network in record time;
• strategies to improve networking abilities, from leveraging “social proof” to proven cold e-mail templates;
• a way to climb quickly to the top of any industry’s social hierarchy;
• the benefits of out-collaborating the competition, and involving other subject matter experts in your work.
Other benefits include e-mail templates used by Mr Kleinert to earn new clients, meet business leaders and attract media coverage; a relationship action plan for setting networking goals; “super-connector” secrets; and a copy of the book 3 Billion Under 30: How millennials continue redefining success, breaking barrier, and changing the world.
Mr Kleinert said the event is an opportunity to meet “like-minded, action-orientated and entrepreneurial attendees who are looking to meet more people in Bermuda”.
The BUEI Talks programme has been running for five years, giving audiences the opportunity to hear from citizens scientists, local and international speakers, filmmakers, authors and others.
Tara Curtis, chief executive officer of BUEI, said: “BUEI Talks is thrilled to once again partner with Jared Kleinert who brings a wealth of knowledge on building world class networks and entrepreneurship which will be of great interest for the Bermuda audience.”
The seminar runs from 12.30pm to 3pm. Tickets are $100, and are available from www.Ptix.bm. In addition, there are three corporate ticket packages of 10, 50 and 100 tickets for employees and friends, which include bonuses — these can be ordered by contacting BUEI on 294-0204, or e-mailing email@example.com
A few days before the seminar, Mr Kleinert will be in Bermuda for the first international edition of the invitation event Meeting of the Minds, which is being held in partnership with Par 3 Consulting, and sponsored by the Bermuda Business Development Agency, Bermuda Tourism Authority and the Bermuda Economic Development Council.
