Beth M. Anderson is an entrepreneur, co-founder of this website, and an internationally recognized expert in Networking. Dubbed the "Queen of Networking", Beth is an active participant in several on-line worlds of networkers who consistently ask her to connect them with others and help them find meetings to attend.

After three years of managing her contacts by hand, she realized we needed a place for everyone to connect together, and TNC was born. Together with her business partner in
OrgTrack.com, Brian Woodruff, they created this website to help others learn to network. She is available for speaking engagements, and invites you to join her on TNC.
