Fabulous, Professional Presentation!

Ben spoke at our Bierkeller / Indaba Business Expo on the 14th September 2017! Ben speaks about the power of the online review and how reviews can be harnessed to smash your sales targets. Ben knows his topic well and is so engaging and delivers a powerful talk. Some of the attendees had never even thought about online reviews and all said he gave them something to think about and they had not realised what a powerful marketing tool an online review is. I highly recommend Ben and will certainly be looking to work with him again in the future.
