Her RSViP network has an excellent reputation in Nottingham and we were keen for her to shed some insight into networking etiquette and how we can maximise our efforts at our events and out on the local networking scene.

Make It Happen

Fiona’s goal is to assist you and your team to thrive in the world of networking, events and business and therefore is willing to tailor her consultations and workshops to suit the needs of you and your business, therefore an initial consultation is suggested at a time that suits you, to allow a exploration discussion on suitable topics to discuss within the next stage.

Let’s work together to improve your knowledge in networking and events and give your business the boost it deserves.

These are tips and tricks which I’m sure the team cannot wait to use in future weeks to build and grow their business base.”
