PASSIONATE ABOUT INSPIRING OTHERS
‘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 attending her first networking events. She created this company with the aim to help individuals get more from their relationships and network with ease.
Passionate about building relationships, Victoria ran thousands of events in London offering attendees opportunities to learn while connecting with like-minded professionals. It allowed her to learn the secrets of great networkers.
Victoria realised the lack of confidence in most of her guests and the growing interest to develop the necessary skills to become more effective 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 our clients 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
’You can have the skills, you can have the qualifications and a business, but it doesn’t matter if no one knows about it.’
We offer dynamic and interactive training covering the below topics:
The art of networking
Business networking and communication
Events and lead generation

Many thanks to the team for the networking session ran for the School of Economics and Finance students at Queen Mary. The students found it engaging, heard about the benefits of networking and picked up tips on how to network effectively. The team was also very generous with both their time and advices.
Social Media Marketing Manager
I attended one TGN coaching's one-on-one LinkedIn training session and was hugely impressed. The style of training made everything easy to digest and understand. All the advices given were practical and useful and I feel much better equipped to use LinkedIn as a networking tool as a result of it. Thank you!
