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!"
