The next Bristol event is on 17 June at Berwick Lodge (near Cribbs Causeway) which offers an excellent light lunch in elegant surroundings. The prelunch seminar is “So tell me, what makes you think I can refer you?” by Jill Green, a senior trainer at the Referral Institute.
The next Worcester event is on 8 June. Jeremy will give the prelunch seminar on how to stop your customers changing their minds (a nice mix of practical business techniques and emotional intelligence).
