About us


‘It's not what you do. It's who you know'. 

The Golden Network was created in 2014 by Victoria Salem who herself experienced confidence issues when doing presentations in front of other people and when attending networking events. She created this company with the aim to help individuals communicate better and network with ease.


Passionate about building relationships, Victoria ran thousands of events in London offering attendees opportunities to learn something while connecting with like-minded professionals. Those allowed her to discover the secrets of successful networkers and communicators.


Victoria sensed the growing interest from her events' attendees to develop their soft skills and become more confident networkers. She therefore put together a team of experienced coaches and designed training programs available under different formats. 

Through a tailored coaching process, we help individuals to develop the skills and ability to: 

  • Attend more events and build successful relationships

  • Become effective networkers and communicators

  • Express their unique value with ease

  • Spot, create and execute upon opportunities

  • Meet key people and decision makers

  • Perfect the knowledge of their industry or area of expertise

  • Raise their company’s profile and their own

  • Grow personally and professionally

  • Move forward with their career or business
