Testimonial, Mark Gill, Operations Director, Goddard Vet Group
What a corker of an event! I must admit to having been a little sceptical that the three days out of the office would be a good use of my time, but I need not have worried. The ‘speed dating’ is nothing short of genius. It forced focused conversations that cut to the chase and forced an assessment of the opportunity that is not replicated in any other forum I have come across. I leave feeling enthusiastic about the commercial opportunities and I would be very surprised if I don’t do business with several of the companies I met. At least two of the companies I feel most enthusiastic about have previously approached me to meet at my office and I have declined, feeling that there was unlikely to be anything worth pursuing.

I was sitting opposite a key contact last night – someone I have tried to email for months – and it's fantastic, because I have had more time with him over the past day than I have ever had with him, meaning we have actually created a relationship. That is worth millions. That meeting alone was worth the price.
