Trust is not an event, and needs to be earned. No truer words from Kingsley. I also love his comments about "creative clusters of connected people". Time to stop spoofing information and accept it can be easily found online!

"Diaspora is about place" - very interesting comment also, esp as the world grows smaller and becomes ever more connected!

Great interview, Fiona and Kingsley - thank you!

Thanks so much for this engaging interview which, in the end, is really about the power of networking. Why is it that more of us don't realize the importance of this in our everyday business efforts? Also, thanks so much to Niall for sharing it with the whole community on BizSugar!
