“Networking has never been more important”

I wrote yesterday about our 1,000th sign-up to tCn – The Construction Network, and thought it might be interesting to find out a bit more about the individual who brought us to that landmark.

Denise GermaineOur 1000th registration actually comes from outside the UK, just across the Irish Sea in Dublin. Denise Germaine is an architect and chartered architectural technologist (she is also chairman of the CIAT Republic of Ireland Centre). She runs a small architectural design and technology  services business with particular expertise in disabled access design, and knows she should use the web as part of her marketing. She has a simple website, and – perhaps more importantly – has also created a public profile on LinkedIn.

Extending her business network by joining tCn was a logical next step, she told me:

“In the current climate of downturn in the construction industry, networking has never been more important. Contact with one’s fellow professionals  and other industry colleagues is one of the main sources of information on jobs, new projects and career opportunities within the industry.

“As with any organisation, you get out of it what you are prepared to put in, so full and enthusiastic participation is essential to ensure that this network is beneficial to all its members. I anticipate that the Republic of Ireland Centre of CIAT will be an advantageous addition to the tCn network and look forward to welcoming more of our members to the site.”
