“Hi Barbara
I had to write this note to you as 10 of my clients went at different times to your Business Expo yesterday and returned with phone calls to me thanking me for sending them the info about the expo.

They all had an excellent time and asked me to thank the people connected with the planning of the expo for such a great day as they meet many exhibitors and done some business also. They are looking forward to 2018 expo now. So thank you, Barbara, for looking after them.”

It was buzzing, the organizing staff at the entry were so helpful and engaging so that was a feel good factor from the outset! There was so much to see with the stands and speaking with the companies regarding there business.  I thoroughly enjoyed networking and encouraging the companies. I invited a stationary company to come along and was delighted to see Olive make great connections also.

The coaching events were fantastic and the presenter so giving of their time and advice that I have signed to do a boot camp with Danielle Serpico in September which I am really looking forward to.

I thoroughly enjoyed the BizExpo this year there were lots of familiar faces and new faces within various industries. You and all the people associated ran this fantastically and made the most of an opportunity to let small businesses come together and make a great day for everyone. If only there were 100 more Barbara Gordon’s in Ireland, what a great place Ireland would be for small businesses.”
