Grant Harrison, Chairman IOD Hampshire and Isle of Wight

Neil provided us with a most inspirational talk… The feedback received was very positive and many commented that they found his talk most inspirational and enlightened them as to how to overcome being reluctant to network.”

Don Leslie, Director BLT

Neil is a sure-fire hit for presentations on networking. His ‘Reluctant Networker’ session for guests of BLT was excellent and the feedback from the audience uniformly warm.”

William Ryckaert, Audit Director, Philips

Neil was an inspiring speaker during our Philips 2013 global conference with participants from across the globe (Europe, US, Asia, Latam). One of the main challenges for each individual in our team is to actively take ownership of our professional career. Even if you are a “reluctant networker” he demonstrated how you can be very effective in leveraging your networks. The team very much appreciated Neil’s engaging and interactive style. He provided us with great insights and practical examples how to make the best out of our network.”

Richard Hammond, Author of ‘Smart Retail’ and Managing Director of Smart Circle Ltd

As a small-consultancy owner, I always understood that networking was important but I fit into a definition Neil puts early on in his excellent book ‘The Reluctant Networker’: always preferring to email than talk on the phone. I’m glad then that a client project forced me to have to phone Neil up because it was that chat that led me to discovering his hugely powerful book. Very highly recommended.”

Sir Ian Cheshire, Chairman, Debenhams plc

“In today’s world networking is essential not just to find your next role but to ensure you make a success of your current role. By taking the perspective of ‘The Reluctant Networker’ the book is essential reading for the many people who have realised the importance of networking but find that it does not come naturally to them.”
