Featured Event: Networking for Success at the British Library

Networking for Success at the British Library

Like it or loathe it, effective networking is one of the keys to building a successful, sustainable business or career.

Your ability to connect, influence and build strong relationships is what may be the difference between whether you thrive or struggle to survive – especially if you are a small business owner, sole trader, a manager or if are in a competitive market or profession.

Likewise networking and influencing skills are often the difference between those who really excel, innovate and create opportunities in their chosen career / field of business and those who are left behind.

Join leading life coach, motivational speaker and business / corporate coach, Rasheed Ogunlaru author of Soul Trader – Putting the Heart Back into Your Business for this unique event to help you build your business, win new opportunities and contacts – and to punch beyond your weight.
