Heidi Torres built connections at an early age when she studied at twelve schools and lived in three countries. For 23 years, she dedicated herself to a career in sales, steadily taking on leadership roles and nurturing sales teams across three states. After a promotion to Human Resources Supervisor, she began overseeing the HR needs of over 200 employees. Torres then earned a BBA in HR Management from Texas Woman’s University, became a SHRM-Certified Professional, and landed positions as an HR Generalist and a Talent Acquisition Director through networking. She serves on the Texoma HR Board of Directors as the Conference Director, the Pioneer Alumni Association Board, and multiple non-profit committees.
When not working, Torres volunteers with the Alzheimer’s Association and enjoys spending time with her husband, and rescue cats.
HRHeidi became a career development consultant to help professionals advance their career opportunities. Writing "The CEOs of Networking: Connecting / Engaging / Opportunities to Serve" and speaking on networking stemmed from colleagues and other professionals expressing a desire to learn how to improve their interpersonal skills.
From personal experiences I saw and reaped the benefits of networking. Building and growing connections helped me land the opportunities that would not have otherwise happened. Colleagues would ask me for advice on how to land a job or advance their career, and I happily shared my networking techniques with them. Time and again I was encouraged to share about how I engaged with my network especially during the pandemic when so many people were struggling from losing their jobs.
That was why I was compelled to write "The CEOs of Networking: Connecting/Engaging/ Opportunities to Serve" to share not just my networking techniques but advice from master networkers who influence industries across the nation and beyond.
You will love this book if you want to learn how to take the stress of networking and transform it into netfriending and netplaying.
Most successful industry leaders will tell you they could not have accomplished their goals without help.
My approach to in-person and virtual networking can help those who are interested in taking their careers to the next level.
