Rebecca Allam BCO Team Photo“I love being able to help businesses overcome challenges and watching them grow in confidence. Organisation and structure make me happy!”

My best Business Clinic moment

“Going to a meeting with a client to help them deliver a presentation to a room filled with people. When she came to The Business Clinic initially she was nervous and dreading having to do it. But on the day I got to see her confidently deliver the presentation we helped her build and practice. I was able to be there with her to provide support, both emotional and technical.”

Areas of expertise

Events management: including planning, project management, database creation and processing, presentation design and creation, advising on delivery and hosting.

About me
