“I was delighted that Jean was available to deliver a talk at our recent Executive PA Summit, as well as facilitate a networking session with the group. While ‘networking’ is not a typical required skill on the job spec of most EAs and PAs, Jean tailored her talk for our audience and advised on how they can incorporate networking skills in their day to day interactions to help progress in their careers. Jean delivered with great enthusiasm and passion for what she advocates, in particular for women when it comes to networking – and everyone in the room was chomping at the bit to learn more from her. We look forward to welcoming Jean to one of our future events again soon!”

Fiona Kelly, Founder – Executive PA Forum Global


“Jean presented a webinar for Contracting PLUS on the “Strategic importance of Networking” for the self-employed. The webinar was insightful, thoughtful, and full of practical tips our client base could use to improve their networking skills. She is an excellent presenter and managed to jam her presentation with worthwhile messaging. She demystified the whole process for our clients and the response we received after the webinar was exceptionally positive. I would have no hesitation in recommending her as a speaker, her expert tips and practical advice mean that anyone who wants to effect real change in how they network can make immediate improvements. She is engaging and entertaining and her own experience in intentional networking serves as a real example of how the self-employed can progress their connections to build more meaningful relationships and ultimately grow their business.”

Geraldine Penney – Contracting Plus


“Jean has been facilitating online networking events every month this year for IoD Ireland members. The sessions have been hugely popular and so well received by our members. As well as enabling our members to meet and network in chatrooms, Jean also delivers great advice, tips and tricks on how to network virtually (and in person) and how effectively to use social media platforms such as LinkedIn. Thank you, Jean, for facilitating so well and engaging our members.”

The Blackrock College Union hosted a Breakfast Briefing for our members and we were delighted to have Jean Evans as our guest speaker. She gave a master class on Networking and the audience was fully engaged. Hints and tips on networking were shared from her vast experience and the feedback from our members has been fantastic.

Stephen Mullin, President of Blackrock College Union

“When I first met Jean I had just begun my networking journey and recently joined the South Dublin Chamber. What Jean got across to me was that for my business, a tax consultancy, one network was not enough. She took me through the myriad of networks in Ireland, weighing up the pros and cons of each but all tha time specially keeping the focus on my business. I had pages of notes from that meeting as Jean had so many helpful insights into how to be an effective networker and how to get the most out of the experience. My advice to anyone considering networking is to first talk to Jean. There’s no one out there who has a better understanding of the networks of Ireland and how to optimise your time with the right networks. She also explained the etiquette of networks and how best to present myself. 90% of my revenues can be directly traced to the referrals and introductions from the three networks that I am involved with and I have Jean to thank for that.”

” Since joining the Venture Business Network, Jean has been an incredible source of support to me. When it comes to networking she is in a class of her own. She intuitively knows the people to connect to each other. She has introduced me to many influential and interesting people who I am now really fortunate to know. When Jean writes about networking – listen up! I guarantee you will learn a lot from her.”

Justine McGrath – ProACTive Coaching


“As busy as Jean is, she always has time to support others. She understands the power of networking and that it’s more about giving than taking. Her dedication to helping others achieve is demonstrated to the highest level in her engagement in the network organisations she’s a part of. If one was to look for a networking mentor or someone to model their networking activity on, Jean Evans should be top of the list.”

Siobhan Fitzpatrick – The Networking Summit


“When I think of Jean, I automatically think of Networking as her art form. Jean’s ability to exchange ideas and information with groups as well as connecting the right people to the right business and situation is outstanding. Jean is so passionate about helping others network and I am very grateful to have met and learned from her wealth of networking experience.”

Jennifer Maher – BeGeal Coaching & Training


“What can I say about Jean Evans… Jean is the ultimate net-worker, and through our collaboration, we have forged a very strong relationship yielding excellent introductions on both sides. Taking action is absolutely key to successful networking, and Jean delivers in spades!”

Tom O’Kelly – ActionCOACH


“I have known Jean Evans since early 2018 where I met her at a trade show. Since then, I engaged Jean’s managed print services and have received nothing but top class service. However, Jean’s astonishing networking abilities have contributed heavily to the success of my business. I have lost count at the number of relevant people Jean has connected me with, people with whom I engage regularly. Without Jean’s assistance, I don’t know where I would be, she is the ‘secret networking weapon’ everyone should have in their top drawer.”

Sorcha Finucane – Founder at TrainedIn


“Jean is a very ethical businesswoman with a sharp sense of what is required and what is not ! Jean is an exceptional networker and she is gaining a great reputation in the ‘women in business ‘ circles in Ireland. I could not recommend Jean highly enough.”
