What the clients say:

“One of these key skills is the ability to land a key customer and for this session we have been lucky enough to work with Nevil who has now delivered three sessions for us.

Nevil has an excellent presenting style which always puts attendees at ease and mixes both presentation and interactive elements to ensure that those taking part are fully engaged and take as much as they can from the session. In engaging Nevil’s services I feel any other organisation or business would be working with a thoroughly professional and knowledgeable individual and someone who we have also enjoyed working with on a personal level.”

“Nevil gave an excellent talk on making the most of LinkedIn for sales. His seminar was informative, detailed and engaging, providing key takeaways that people could go home and apply straight away to their own profiles.”

“I recently attended a day-long "LinkedIn for Success" workshop with Nevil and I cannot recommend him highly enough. In fact I have already mentioned him to a couple of people and passed on his contact details. Nevil is very knowledgeable in the subject and is able to impart that knowledge in a very down-to-Earth, accessible and humorous way.”

“I recently attended a seminar that Nevil delivered, the theme was Price v Value. The content was excellent and pitched just at the right level for the group. Nevil's delivery style was engaging and thought provoking and left me wanting more! Clearly an expert. I look forward to seeing him in action at other events.”
