It is now an established premise, internationally, that successful business gets done not because of WHAT you know, but because of WHO you know.This new thought has given rise to a wide variety of business and social networking groups – Rotary, Giants, Lions, BNI, IBG, TIE, etc. Because of their practices, some of these end up becoming ‘restrictive’ in nature and therefore actually defeat the purpose of networking.

Enter: The Indian Networker 

The Indian Networker is one of the first groups in India and perhaps the world, where different networking organizations converge. The Indian Networker is a confluence of networking associations. Putting it simply, the objective of The Indian Networker is to create a TRUSTED forum of professionals from diverse networks like Rotary, Lions, Giants, BNI, IBG, TIE and the like. Since our inception, more than 1000 professionals have had the opportunity to meet carefully screened professionals and interact with them, professionally and personally.

The man behind The Indian Networker is Founder and NetworKING, Sampath K. Iyengar (Sam, to his friends), who carries more than 2 decades of expertise covering Rotary, BNI, TIE, various IT associations, etc. He is personally involved in the networking process and believes in hand-picking quality people for both speakers & guests for this event. (For more details on Sam’s background, see below).
