Wax leads Wizo networkers

Ruby Wax was the star turn for Wizo when it launched a business networking venture in collaboration with the JC in central London.

The JCWizonet is designed to encourage working men and women across the generations to share business experience and expertise.

Focusing on good communications. Ms Wax drew on some of her celebrity interviews to develop her theme of trust in the workplace. The 120 guests were also addressed by Andy Lopata, known as “Mr Network”, who suggested that the “dog eat dog” approach was counter-productive. “Networking relies on establishing personal relations, feeling good vibes and connecting to people in an atmosphere of trust and mutual respect.”

Future activities will include breakfasts open to all and events aimed primarily at women.
