Joanne Benbow. Just wanted to say a huge thank you Michael. I went away from this masterclass feeling extremely positive and well equipped for my next networking event. Content was delivered brilliantly, the whole room was engaged from start to end. Wonderful way to spend the morning 👍
From Gavin. Wrexham. 
It was great to meet up with you at last weeks event.
I found your presentation really interesting.
I have been self-employed now for some 17 years so networking forms quite a part of that. Some of the ideas that you had were new to me but I have now adopted at networking events since then!! With success!! I picked up 2 new clients last week as a result of your suggestions. I have been doing it wrong all these years!!
Thanks for your guidance.
