Personal growth and development are a big topic nowadays. From seminars to books and lectures, it’s easy to find helpful information on how to better improve yourself. The big question is why attend personal development events when there is so much reading material available online or at your local library or bookstore?

The Opportunity to Ask Your Questions Directly

Attending this live event means you get to meet the speakers or writers whose work you are familiar with, take this opportunity to settle all the doubts you may have and ask as many questions as you can. This event will feature a special Q&A section at the end, so make sure you take your notes with you, and ask poignant and interesting questions which can be of value to you and to the other members of the audience.

Have Fun and Network

It will be a fun day where you can be in contact with different ideas and people.

Further Educate Yourself

Taking the time to attend this event will give you the opportunity to further educate yourself on a particular topic you may be interested in, or even know more about a topic you are curious about. We should never stop learning, and a good way to do so is to attend live events.

Meet Like-minded Individuals

Live events are a great opportunity to meet people with the same philosophy or life goal as you. Make sure you mingle and talk to people who seem as interested as you, in order to make new connections and maybe even friendships. Live events are a great way to share your personal experience, as well as listening to others’. Who knows, maybe you will find your new business partner

Be in Contact with Something New

You will learn more about how to achieve whatever it is you desire. You may have an interest in the specific topic under discussion. This is a great way to be in contact with not only people with a different goal or mindset as you, but maybe even an opportunity for you to find a new way to look at your own business or life.

These were just a few reasons why you should attend this fantastic event, there are so many more reasons to attend.

If there’s one last tip I can give you, it’s this: find a topic you are passionate about, buy your ticket, and get ready for a fun yet educational day!

What Others Say About Pat

“When it comes to change, Pat knows what he is talking about, he really knows his stuff. The Man is a Genius” - Bob Proctor

“Pat has the answers. Take heed” - Brian Tracy

“Business and Financial Education are vitally important if one is to succeed in the cut and thrust world we live in today. Throughout my formative years I was told that hard work would deliver the success I desired, but if that were true all the hard working business people I know would be successful, and they are not! I have learned that it is HOW one sets up one's business and HOW one prosecutes one's financial life that delivers far more success than simply "hard work" alone. Pat has a proven track record in delivering to his clients both one-to-one and group Business Coaching and I would urge anyone interested in improving the outcome of their business efforts to speak with Pat to see how he may be able to assist you.”

Paul Ovary – Author and financial coach

“Many of my clients have attended Pat’s coaching programmes over a protracted period and have improved their businesses as a result of identifying their own strengths and weaknesses, developing inner powers and organising accordingly.”

Pat Finucane, Senior Projects Director, FDC Accountants

Pat has the ability to move you emotionally with total heart and soul, to step up in business and in life and follow your dream.”

James Martin, Owner & Lead Trainer, TeamLife Training

“Pat is a fantastic speaker and mentor. His presentations are motivating, inspirational and he has the real experience to back it up. I have heard Pat speak on a wide range of topics and each time, there was always something new, value that I could use. Even when speaking to a large group, Pat seems to be speaking to you personally.

Pat is a powerful, passionate and persuasive speaker, and his ability to ignite any audience into action is remarkable. It makes him one of the most exciting, relevant and memorable speakers in the world.

Pat is dedicated to helping and inspiring others to be the best that they can be. He has a fantastic ability to inspire and motivate others in the areas of personal or business development. Working with Pat equals outstanding results.”

Tracey Smolinski is the founder and managing director of Wales’ leading independent business network, Introbiz.

Since the company’s birth back in 2009, Tracey has become a highly successful businesswoman. Today, the network boasts over 300 members from a wide range of industries and sectors, while hosting 60 networking events a year in various 4- and 5-star locations throughout South Wales and host events internationally.

She offers free training sessions for the members whilst also training in schools on behalf of the Welsh Government and is a proud Big Ideas Role Model.

She is known for her commitment and drive to providing valuable information. Her talks are extremely powerful and compelling as she leaves the audience feeling completely energized and ready to take on the world!

One of the reasons Tracey stands out as a speaker is that she brings her own personal experiences to her talks. She speaks openly about how she got networking very wrong during her first three months as she was giving it the hard sell and almost completely gave up on it, but not before she took on some very sound advice.

She started networking in the correct way, by building relationships and trust and went on to sell £100,000 worth of advertising revenue over the next 6 months. She saw first-hand how powerful and profitable networking could be for business. Tracey spotted a gap in
the market and decided to start her own networking company, and so Introbiz was born!

Tracey has shared the stage with Lord Alan Sugar, Grant Cardone, Hilary Devey CBE, Baroness Michelle Mone, John Lee, Jamie Baulch, Marie Diamond, The Apprentice winners Mark Wright and Alana Spencer and Sharon Lechter, an international bestselling author who is widely credited as being the genius behind the Rich Dad brand. Sharon is also Tracey’s mentor.

Having worked in the networking world for several years now, demands for Tracey to share her knowledge and experience have grown significantly, which is why she decided to write a book to help anyone who’d like any advice when it comes to networking. Tracey also discusses the trials she’s faced as a business owner and how her own experiences have shaped the businesswoman that she is today. Master Networking: 10 Steps to Building Business Relationships for Profit and Success, explores her tried and tested methods for effective networking
