Through his enthusiastic and personalized, interactive mode of presentation, it widens the participants’ scope to assert them to refresh their visions in the importance of smart social networking in a highly competitive business environment whereby one’s visibility and credibility would enrich them through the ‘harvesting of seeds’ in these bad times. I feel recharged and motivated after attending the course.” ~ Jerome Ho, Wellness Consultant “Thank you for the important lessons you shared. They are very meaningful and will last me a lifetime.” ~ Christian Bustamante, PAIA Consulting “You’re truly a master of networking.

I thought that was a commendable skill, being able to read off people's body language. You appeared to be an introvert who has adapted rather well to the demands of this extrovert-dominated world and can diffuse silence with practised ease.” Crysandra Soon, Temasek Polytechnic (Psychology) Participants at Getting Expreneurial!
