Business Networking Made Easy June 2016 “Thank you so much for a really enjoyable, informative and interesting morning. I came away with a clearer perspective, not least because I can now develop my elevator pitch, into something meaningful and succinct. Also, I will definitely employ my new found skills at my next networking event. It is so interesting – when asked to prepare a presentation in the past, I would have spent a considerable amount of time researching, and preparing content, and also practising my presentation at home – yet I turn up to networking events with no preparation at all…until now!!” Margaret Gemmell

Business Networking Made Easy October 2015 “I recently attended Christine’s training ‘Networking for Business Made Easy.’ I found it incredibly useful both theoretically and practically. I put some of the training into practice at a networking event the following day. I used some of the questions to find out more about the people I was talking to and am following up to arrange a 1 to 1 later this week. Your training made my visit to a networking event feel less like a chat over coffee and more like I was building my business! I am still working on my 5 questions and have been practicing in the car whilst driving! I am now confident with my elevator pitch to explain what I do in a short period of time. This will have a huge impact on my business in the future. So a big thank you! (I have also suggested a couple of people I have met also attend your training!)” Kathy Duffield

Advanced Selling Skills June 2015 “Just a quick note to say – I had my meeting and brought up costs and went straight in with my standard hourly rate and they accepted no quibble. If it wasn’t for your advice I probably would have gone in offering some sort of deal and done myself out of the money when I didn’t need to.” Emma Bailey Director EventGems Ltd

Thank you so much for yesterday’s sales training. It was so useful and I took so many key nuggets away that were helpful, and especially from the discussions and you elaborating on the slide details. Your presenting style was easy to learn from, and I also liked the honesty that others admitted in understanding things that they previously hadn’t been able to. I’ll certainly be booking again on further courses.” Andrew Chenery Financial Peace UK April 2015
