"I have known Colin for a number of years in a professional capacity so had no hesitation in seeking him out when I required advice on my company's networking approach going forward. Colin exceeded even my own high expectations; delivering a highly targeted yet detailed set of recommendations, contact names and approaches based on his own extensive knowledge and experience in the networking field.
In a very short time Colin had provided my company with both road-map and rule-book for our future networking activities, saving us untold wasted hours of trial and error, and all the expenses this might entail. I cannot recommend Colin highly enough to anyone looking for guidance for their business' future networking activities."
David Sime, Digital Marketing Manager, Corporate Trainer & Lecturer

“Undoubtedly a commensurate networker, Colin understands and applies the most effective principles of good business networking. He brings his wealth of experience and expertise to his established and warmly welcomed networking group in Central Scotland, Coffee – n – Commerce.
Colin ensures that this is informal but facilitated networking at its best and, through his encouragement to build strong relationships and his genuine interest in others and their business success, he demonstrates that what he doesn’t know about positive business networking isn’t worth knowing! I am pleased to recommend Colin highly.”
Douglas Glen, MD at Freshfrontiers Consulting Ltd
“Colin is arguably the most active business Networker in Glasgow and beyond. What is important though is that he understands the true value and benefits of Networking properly. So much so in fact that he is frequently asked for his insights on Networking and even had his 5 minutes of fame on BBC radio recently. Colin has boundless energy (no doubt because he knows all the right things to eat!) and is always willing to help others at every opportunity.
A sound, genuine, honest guy who goes out of his way to make other peoples businesses better. If you need any tips on Networking and how best to go about it - Colin's your man.”
