Master the art of Networking
“In August this year, Standard Bank Business Banking held a series of events throughout the country. We chose Helen as our keynote speaker not only by virtue of the fact that she too is a highly successful self-starter but also because of the valuable Networking information she was able to impart. Helen’s presentation is intelligent, thought-provoking, entertaining and most importantly interactive. We received fantastic feedback from our attendees.” - Julia Kerr, Account Director: Standard Bank - Magna Carta Public Relations (Pty) Ltd “Just a word of thanks for the amazing keynote presentation you delivered at our Alumni breakfast last week. Your Networking presentation was the highlight of the morning and the delegates are actually still raving about it. Very seldom do you walk out of a presentation feeling inspired, gaining a skill and having a light bulb moment. This presentation accomplished all three!” - Sonja Nel, Senior HR Manager, Price Waterhouse Coopers
