It was great to see so many new faces at our Business Forum on Tuesday 29th April. This month’s guest speaker, Vanessa Ugatti – The True Worth Expert, gave an engaging and interactive talk about how business leaders and professionals must learn to charge what they’re worth and feel confident in doing so. Attendees were all agreed that everyone is far too susceptible to providing clients with fee reductions, or even ‘freebies’. During her presentation, Vanessa discussed some basic tips which can help professionals combat this tendency.
Our second speaker of the evening was Jemma Cooper; winner of the Inspire sponsored Entrepreneur of the Future category at last year’s Rockstar Awards. She returned to the Business Forum in order to update us about her experiences of the past year. At only 25 she has been the proud owner of HI Therapies for two years, and has completely turned around a business which was previously making a loss. She’s clearly a true entrepreneur at heart with many plans for the future, from using her own experiences to help other young entrepreneurs in their business journeys, to expanding into the local business community.
An added bonus to last night’s event was the free massages offered by Jemma and Sarah from HI Therapies for all attendees to enjoy!
After such a great event, we’re looking forward to next month’s Forum with Paul Tansey from Intergage talking about Google+; the up and coming way of social networking.
