In times of social distancing, we all miss face-to-face meetings with friends, colleagues and business associates. In her latest book, The Lost Art of Connecting, communications expert Susan McPherson argues that this is just the tip of the iceberg. The pandemic has only escalated an enduring feeling of disconnection.

While we all have large networks on social media and business platforms, real connection and long-lasting, meaningful relationships remain rare and exclusive – especially in a business context. In this DLD Sync session, Susan discussed with DLD’s Founder and Connector-in-Chief, Steffi Czerny, what the key elements for forging real relationships are, and why they are important not just in our current situation but for our success in business and life as well.
