“Your network is your net worth”

As a new year begins, we return from our respective holidays recharged but potentially steering down a challenging year ahead. With shipping delays and surcharges, trade barriers and increased regulatory pressures, the early signs are that we are shaping up for an interesting 2024.

On a more optimistic note, I have just returned from a really enjoyable few days representing BIR at the Material Recycling Association of India’s Convention in Kolkata. Networking events are invaluable: you learn, you build relationships and you have the opportunity to understand different markets more fully.

A great part of being in BIR is the forming of close bonds. As I heard on a “Born Scrappy” podcast recently: “Your network is your net worth.” With that in mind, I look forward to seeing you all at BIR’s major networking events in May and October.
