How to Network – Even if You’re Self-Conscious

Networking is something we should all build more actively, whether professionally or personally. It's rewarding on so many levels. But if you're self-conscious, how do you start?

We have been greatly impressed with Matthew’s professionalism and quality of service in delivering technical articles for our website and clients. Our website has recorded a substantial increase in traffic since partnering with Matthew. Not only has he breathed new life into our technical blog but he has also helped us to stand out in a highly competitive industry.

(Jamin Andrews, Managing Director Conetix)

It was a pleasure working with Matt; he has an excellent development skill set, and more importantly is always learning and improving. He is one of those rare technical people who are truly professional – in his demeanor, his approach to executing his work, and his clear and timely communication. A very focused PHP and general web developer who works to a high standard, and someone who I would be very happy to work with again.
