Hosted at Inamo's private event space in Covent Garden, the rest of the evening is spent enjoying a few complimentary drinks and canapes.

inamo are pioneering Pan-Asian restaurants and bars with locations in Soho, Covent Garden & Camden where interactive projections on table surfaces enable you to set the mood, discover the local neighbourhood, and entertain you with retro games. After the MasterBlast the screen will be set up for games.

On arrival attendees will receive a welcome glass of fizz. Canapes will be served after the MasterBlast which will include spring rolls, red dragon rolls, beef fillet teriyaki skewers and wasabi prawns plus a couple of glass of wine/beer or soft drinks.

Testimonials (on previous seminars and workshops run by Mark)

"I'm a fairly hard taskmaster, so don't give out too many 'Excellents' lightly on surveys, but I took a lot from the session and enjoyed the relaxed nature of the presentation. It was the first time I had attended such an event feeling focussed and fully committed to networking becoming an increasingly bigger part of my role within the company. It has encouraged me to embrace the role with a bit less cynicism. A very worthwhile event."

"Networking is what I've done in every job I've worked in, but all those years of actively doing them have been useless. Finally, Mark has shown me how every person who wants to grow their business should all look at networking with far more importance and effort. Becoming members of Urbano was a fresh lease of life for us, its opened our eyes to enormous and what seems to be endless opportunities! Thank you Mark and team!"

"I have been using a few of the techniques from the class to hone my skills. I am more comfortable in approaching groups now, and I hope I now send relevant & specific follow up to contacts I have made. I have also slightly altered the way I introduce myself and the firm, initially leaning towards describing the jobs I enjoy being involved with and my skill set. I feel possibly in trying to encompass all that my company does in two sentences was not specific or memorable enough. Let’s just say the course got my brain thinking!"
