Testimonials

“I had the pleasure of attending my first Networking Event with Jade and also doing the photography.

Truly I was blown away. Not only by the organisation of the event, which Jade made look effortless but also the engaging and fun aspect, while also keeping everything very professional, really stood out to me.

I could see people making real connections and having the chance to network in a great relaxed environment. Such a great job Jade. ”
