“As a new member, I recently attended the Google Seminar held in Google’s head office. I was very impressed with the venue and the calibre of companies represented at the seminar. The event was very informative and inspiring in itself but coupled with the great networking opportunity it was an event that I would certainly attend again. I met two new clients and two urgently needed suppliers who were immediately able to help me with a project I was managing in China.”
Gary Smith, Rival Print Management
