I was working as a journalist in NYC and wanted to transition back into producing television. Neelu coached me in the super useful skill of networking (something that doesn't exactly come naturally to me). She taught me the art of taking someone out for a cup of coffee and tactfully following up. We created a spreadsheet of dozens of contacts and kept it updated (i.e. when I reached out to them, what our last interaction was, etc). I eventually landed gigs with some of these contacts thanks to Neelu.
