Joe Sweeney is the New York Times Best Selling author of "Networking Is a Contact Sport". Joe takes the anxiety out of networking and business development by helping people understand that networking is really about giving, not getting. Over the course of his 30-year career Joe has served on 28 Boards of Directors, was President of the Wisconsin Sports Authority and has owned more than 12 companies—including the sports marketing agency Sports Marketing Group, which he founded when three-time NFL MVP Brett Favre signed on as the first client.
Today, in addition to his work as an equity partner and investment banker with Corporate Financial Advisors, Joe travels the country as an author and speaker. He shares his experiences and teaches business owners, high-achieving professionals—and anyone who wants to realize that next, big, wild, audacious goal—his time-tested habits to create meaningful connections that bring a lifetime of success.
