Marsham Court Hotel – Sept 2016

This is a lovely testimonial from Jane Swift at the Marsham Court Hotel, Bournemouth.

“The Marsham Court Hotel has been running the New 2 Business Networking group for almost 2 years.  At each event we invite a speaker to share their experiences, hints and tips. The remit is to encourage, inspire and motivate those who are embarking on a new business venture or changing direction.

Jo delivered an extremely engaging, honest and at many points humorous presentation when she spoke at our event in September 2016. Using her own experiences of starting and growing a business as examples, Jo has a style that relaxes and engages her audience. She easily connected with the audience who happily interacted and contributed to the session and we received very positive feedback after her presentation.”
