“We created a women's innovative networking group (WING) at our London office and were looking for an inspirational woman to come along and speak with our group. That's where Bianca came in. I knew of her from her Apprentice appearance, however I could not have been prepare for how fantastic she actually was!!!! Her energy from start to finish was inspiring and her presentation was faultless. The group of ladies that attended were from all different roles within the business from junior administrators to heads of departments. They also varied hugely in age, from early 20's up to early 50's. Bianca was fantastic!!!! She was able to relate with all levels and ages, and made an impact on the whole group. The ladies were buzzing for the rest of the day and have already sent me emails to set up more sessions in the future.’ Thank you Bianca, I hope to work with you again in the future.” HR and Training Manager, Allied World Insurance Group

“It was an absolute pleasure to have Bianca come in for the KPMG X Bianca Miller Networking & Personal Branding workshop. Bianca has great energy and fantastic delivery and really kept the group constantly engaged. The workshop was of a great quality and really highlighted issues which many of us are unaware of as these are skills that are usually always spoken of but not explained prescriptively. Overall, the workshop was a massive success and the feedback for Bianca was extremely high. She did a fantastic job and really helped us all collectively and individually learn more as a group.” KPMG

Bianca presented on her career story to date, plans for the future and most importantly tips for success for anyone, regardless of your profession.

She is a utter delight to work with and highly interacts with her audience on the lead up to the event, at the event and afterwards too, which is so important to me as a booker.

The session gave practical, accessible and achievable advice that students could identify with and put straight into practice.
