About Gail Tolstoi-Miller

She is a former “goth” girl, a soccer mom and an avowed introvert who transformed herself to become a successful dual CEO of Consultnetworx™, a consulting/staffing firm and Speednetworx™, a B2B speed networking event company. Gail also founded SpeedHIRE™ events, a one-of-a-kind, in-house recruiting solution. Her companies are focused on connecting people for mutual fit and success. As someone who always preferred solitude and time for reflection, Gail struggled for decades with social interaction, small talk and networking; but knew she would have to master these skills to reach her goals. When Gail began to focus on others instead of herself she saw her opportunities skyrocket. She realized that it was in good part because of the relationships she had developed over the years, both in her personal and professional life. Gail credits her success–as well as the success of her clients and job candidates–to her mindful giving of care, compassion, and guidance in all that she does. In other words, she’s living proof that Networking Karma works! And now, to fully live by her beliefs, Gail is sharing these secrets with her readers in her first book. Tolstoi-Miller’s innovative approach to business and life has singled her out by many media outlets, including Forbes, FOX Business, msn careers, and others, where she shares her ideas on networking, recruiting and the job market. She has received the NJBIZ Best 50 Women in Business 2013 award as well as the Diversity.com Top 2014 and Top 2015 Business awards.
