David Burkus is a best-selling author, a sought build key connections—one based on the science of human behavior, not rote networking advice. He’s delivered keynotes to the leaders of Fortune 500 companies and the future leaders of the United States Naval Academy. His TED talk on "How To Hack Networking" made me view the time spent at cheesy networking events just doesn't work. He is a regular contributor to Harvard Business Review, and associate professor of leadership and innovation at Oral Roberts University.

His forthcoming book, Friend of a Friend, offers readers a new perspective on how to grow their networks.
