"Jon's networking skills seminar was full of practical and helpful information and good practice which I found invaluable when I attended my next conference. Although approaching conference delegates I had never met before was still a little daunting, I put what I learnt from the seminar into practice and spoke to more than a dozen people I would not have previously approached so thank you Red Vanilla"
