After 23 years of non-productive networking, I was fortunate to meet Joyce at what I had determined to be my last networking event. She asked what results I was getting from my efforts. I shared with her that for over two decades, I had provided quality referrals to many and had received very little in return. She said, “I can help you fix the problem and turn your networking into a valuable asset capable of growing your business exponentially.” The fee I paid for her consulting is absolutely the best business development investment I have ever made. My only regret is I didn’t meet her 20 years ago. It is without reservation that I recommend her services to you. Do you and your business a favor…retain her.

Our participants were in the Mobility industry, some were direct competitors, they represented many different sub-industries, the attendees were from around the globe and Joyce needed to deliver a message that would resonate with everyone. She came in to our event a day early, intermingled with the attendees, learned a bit more about who we are and then hit a home run! Great message, great delivery, great reviews. You can’t ask for more than that!
