About Us

NetKno was founded by Jeni Smith in April 2020, just as the world closed its doors to in-person networking events for the very first time.

Despite its challenges, NetKno has gone from strength to strength delivering networking training and consultancy remotely, and through pre-recorded video content, working with corporates clients and universities all over the world.

Jeni Smith

During her career Jeni has won several awards in enterprise including being named within the ‘Future 100 Young Entrepreneurs’ in the UK, ‘Growth Accelerator Programme’ winner, and finalist in the Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2021.

Between 2017-19 she conducted two rounds of academic research with Durham University, exploring her unique strategic business networking model. The research results spurred her on to launch NetKnow and are what we now use to develop bespoke networking strategies for consultancy clients and NetKno-Who subscribers.

Our mission is to make the world a better place by inspiring and empowering people to connect.

So we’ve also teamed up with Ecologi, to offset our corporate carbon footprint.

Plus, every time someone enrols on one of our courses, or becomes a member of NetKnoWho we’ll plant a tree!

Have to admit I’d never heard of a networking strategist until I was introduced to Jeni through a mutual connection, but wow! Jeni really knows her stuff! She doesn’t simply grab a handful of links from the first page of an Eventbrite search result, she really wants to get to know you and find out about your business. Clearly she puts a lot of time, thought and effort into crafting a strategy that works for you; and I’m sure even the serial networkers will discover events they’ve never heard of when Jeni comes back with your strategy plan, all delivered professionally and personably. Thank you so much, Jeni!
