Department of International Trade Preparing and Refining Your Business Pitch - Farnborough Airshow Meet the Buyer Virtual Webinar delivered by Julie Collins
“Julie Collins is the best and most informative speaker I have ever seen in the last 22 years.”

“Very down to earth way of addressing the issue. The best pitch session I have been on.”

“Excellently presented, clear, concise and very beneficial. Thank you!”

We already use Collins & Collins for our Sonardyne International Limited marketing and exhibition projects, which made them our go-to-choice for pitch & presentation and customer services training. Julie fully understood the different training briefs and delivered knowledgeable, fun, and interactive sessions to our Global Sales and Customer Services teams successfully using remote video conferencing.

We set the bar high and Julie delivered with great feedback from our Sonardyne trainees.
