Press Room


Author Joe Sweeney Speaks to Godfrey & Kahn Associates

December 23, 2010

In November, Godfrey & Kahn associates attended a presentation given by Joe Sweeney who authored the New York Times bestseller, "Networking is a Contact Sport." Sweeney has been a client of Godfrey & Kahn for more than 20 years.

Sweeney is the managing director of Corporate Financial Advisors, LLC in Milwaukee and has built his career around his love for business and sports. He shared his experiences on how he became a master networker by thinking "outside the box" and "paying it forward."

The presentation also included a discussion with John Dickens and Peter Sommerhauser, shareholders in the Corporate Practice Group of Godfrey & Kahn, who have developed strong networking skills throughout their careers as lawyers. The group offered practical advice on how junior attorneys can connect with others very early in their career and develop their skills to become successful networkers. Each shared their successes and failures on developing relationships and demonstrated how networking is about what you can give, not get.
