"Thanks again"

"Attending Michael Hughes' Networking Boot Camp was the best investment I have ever made towards the success of my business. Every minute of the day was filled with information, tricks and tools to maximize the value of my networking. His teaching style allowed me to understand the practicality and importance of every aspect of networking from planning ahead to follow-up. For a full day workshop, instead of leaving exhausted and overwhelmed, I left invigorated, self-confident and with a solid understand of how to work my net. Michael, I can not thank you enough for sharing your expertise and enthusiasm, you truly are Canada's Networking Guru!"
