Mark Perl is a former hotelier, events professional and communications consultant for several South African government ministries (during South Africa’s post ’94 elections transition to democracy), and the preferred provider of business networking training to the professional services sector in the UK.
His expertise was developed not by reading books, but gained from the experience of repeated practice, over many years, in commercial environments which were often hostile and resistant to change or intervention. Implementing different techniques, he has distilled his networking skills training programs from establishing, first hand, what translated into the building of trusted relationships, business development, sales and results.
