Episode 48 - Joe ChathamHow to network in 2021? We're making conversations about networking count!
Joe Chatham, Relationship Marketing Expert
Making Conversations about Networking Count!
Joe Chatham is the founder of USA 500 Clubs. With his expertise in relationship marketing, Joe set up an exclusive member-based organization in 2013. It’s for successful trusted advisors to develop lasting relationships, share knowledge and resources, and create business opportunities.
If there’s one thing we’ve all had to learn to do in the past year, it’s how to overcome that awkwardness while networking over a screen.
It’s not as easy as some might think, to build a reputation with relationship marketing.
Yet, if anyone can speak to it, it’s this episode’s guest!
Joe Chatham is the founding father of USA500Clubs, a growing network of ‘white collar’ professionals across the coastline from California to Boston and in between.
After spending 25 years in the mortgage brokerage industry running a successful practice Joe navigated two recessions and knew the landscape was changing.
In this episode, Joe offers a lot of insight and wisdom in terms of how networking should go, and how we should behave.
Even during those awkward moments that only participating in a video call while working from home can throw up!
“We don’t pass business cards at our meetings, we don’t allow it. But business is constantly happening because people like each other…” –

I love this podcast. The guests you have on all bring something new to the conversation and definitely thought-provoking.
Sometimes this means I change something I do, or something I would say, and other times it’s a real opportunity for reflection.
Thanks for sharing your guests with us Wendy, the podcasts are brilliant.
I always enjoy listening to Wendy’s Making Conversations Count podcast and admire her talent for drawing out people’s stories and getting to the heart of things for finding out what makes them tick.
We all have pivotal moments and Wendy manages to find the right parts, showcasing the reasons why someone is who they are.
It’s those details that we connect to and come to more understanding of why people do what they do.
Love this podcast series. It’s a great idea to have a theme of ‘pivotal conversations’ and the variety of guests from massively different backgrounds keeps it fresh and interesting.
Wendy is a natural host and makes people feel at ease to share their stories.
