Patti Bigger, Corporate relations manager of Specialty Screw Corp., Rockford comments on the cover story “Build a network of support”
On how networking has helped her: “Receiving a positive endorsement or a negative caution from a trusted contact accelerates decision-making.”
On whether a networking group gives her credibility: “An affiliation can support credibility, but more importantly, it is how you utilize the resource.” She is a member of the American Business Women’s Association and the Rockford Chamber of Commerce.
On limits of networking with women’s groups: “Sometimes, we just need both genders to get the best or most appropriate perspective.”
