The guy

Michael Whitehouse

It all began on a visit to a secret government networking research lab. A chance encounter, with a radioactive nametag at a networking event turned mild mannered Michael Whitehouse into The Guy Who Knows a Guy!

Gifted with supernatural networking powers, The Guy Who Knows a Guy travels around the city, righting wrongs, fighting for justice, and getting people to buy him sushi in exchange for great advice.

OK, that is not exactly correct, although I do give advice in exchange for sushi.

Here’s the real story…

In 2014, I moved to the town of Groton, Connecticut not knowing a single person in town. At the time, I was trying to build an ill-fated consulting business without much of a business plan. The one thing that I did know was that whatever I was doing would require a robust network.

The night before we officially moved to town, I attended my first Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours, and I turned my networking up to 11 from then on.

Within two years, I was being asked to fill vacancies in town government, offered leadership roles in the local Rotary club, and more.

I was finding that I had connections that locals who had lived here for generations didn’t know. I had become a guy who knows a guy.

It became clear to me that I was doing something right, and what I was doing would be of benefit to others. In 2017, I wrote The Guy Who Knows A Guy to share the techniques and strategies which had served me so well.

In 2020, I took what I had learned locally to the global digital world. Since then, I have met with and learned from over 3,000 entrepreneurs, experts, business owners, and superconnectors. I have build a network that spans 6 continents and numerous countries.

With the pandemic moving everything online, he took his networking to a new level, connecting with people from fields of entrepreneurship, coaching, course creation, real estate, and more.

Today, he is a networking concierge, JV broker, community leader, and coach.
