“Hi, I’m Bob Arnold.
I know I’m supposed to write this Bio in the third person, but I don’t meet people in the third person, so I will introduce you to ‘Me’ as if you are standing right in front of me, right now.”
I’ve been a networker, architect, and land planner for over 38 years now and am an entrepreneur, author, and notable networker in everything I do. My career in both architecture and networking is focused on helping people realize their potential. I’ve studied and implemented networking so much throughout my career that I’ve graduated from a hideous wallflower status to now being a mentor on deep networking.
My passion and desire is to see, guide, and mentor people so they can develop the ‘sweet spot’ in their career, business, family, and community where they then find success. This desire’s been the inspiration to develop several mentoring programs that still help guide many in their daily and business lives.
As an architect, the focus is on projects where clients are guided into the path of profit through a unique program called “YOUR SynergyPAD.” It’s an effective, fun and intuitive way to find the best avenue of utilizing a client’s facility as an asset to the business rather than allowing it to be a liability.
As an author, I invite you to engage with my exploration into the ‘essence’ of networking through my new book titled, The Uncanny Power of the Networking Pencil—The Natural, No-Anxiety Way to Spot Results-Oriented Networking Partners—Fast! This book will give you the tools you need to turn your networking into a lifestyle, rather than a business activity. I firmly believe that effective networking is the very beginning of the marketing and sales process and can bring many benefits and sales to your door.
As a networker, over 25 years of learning and practicing the art of networking has resulted in mentoring business people through my uniquely designed “Networking Success Mastermind” groups, where the focus is on Networking Your Way to Success.
Monthly at the Greater Medina Chamber of Commerce program Networking WOW, I lead the attendees through engaging topics on networking. WOW’s purpose is to provide teaching, discussion and effective networking contacts for its attendees. As Organizer/Director of the group, I design the monthly topic of interest, and mentor the attendees through lively discussions on networking’s finer points.
I’m also an 8+ year member of the I-71 Buzz BNI group (Business Network International) which focuses on developing a referral-based network. As a past president of the group, I was determined to develop a mentoring program aimed at turning new members into savvy networkers. The program has been adopted by the North and East regions of BNI in Ohio as their mentoring program of choice and I help guide chapters onto paths of success with their members.
I invite you to explore the many facets of how networking can enhance your life and business, and along the way we can get to know each other much better. I truly look forward to that. Below are a couple of ways you may contact me and I encourage you to do so if you have questions or input.
Now let’s get on with the networking.
