Being mentored by Bianca was an absolute pleasure! Her extensive knowledge on business start ups and business in general has really helped me to excel, with a stagnant business of 10 years. She helped me look at my business from a new perspective. Bianca has supported me with rebranding and during the time of working with her I have gone from 3 services to 7 different childcare services. Bianca’s support has been second to none I fully recommend anyone who is serious about pushing their business further to liaise with her or attend the mastermind session

Self Made Mentee
"Could not wait to give this recommendation! Thank you Bianca for what was an energetic, productive and gem filled morning. Not only are you down to Earth and caring but infinitely knowledgeable about business. Your easy going to appropriately challenging style was just right. You steered the conversation appropriately, whilst letting it organically flow. Questions were answered with a rare authenticity and always got to the point of the matter. During our 1-2-1 session you were able to get to the heart of the matter quickly, with clarity and a directional ability like a dart hitting a bulls eye. By the end of the session I had several key action points that I could go away and start actioning straight away.  In fact, I invested this morning in doing some of the things you advised. What can I say, value, value, value. What price can you put on clear, honest direction that you are able to implement straight away!!?? I’d encourage anyone who is thinking about it to work with Bianca (and Byron)  Thanks again!" Dayna Byfield- Self Made Mente

City Lit- International Womens Day
I just wanted to say on behalf of my department a huge Thank You for the way in which you co-ordinated from your end, Bianca’s delivery of her keynote speech for International Women’s Day!  From the initial contact  (with Byron) and throughout (with yourself) the communication and process has been seamless, accommodating and indeed extremely professional. It was a pleasure to meet and host Bianca yesterday. We have had so much positive verbal feedback. We all agree that Bianca is a dynamic and inspiring speaker and an authority in her own right. Individuals gained clarity, direction and encouragement as it pertains to their own journeys of entrepreneurship. So many have asked when we will be having Bianca back.  I would like to say a special Thank You to Bianca for accepting our invitation and for making our first IWD event a success!

Adele Browne
Head of Student Placements
Bianca delivered a highly enjoyable and beneficial session to our students at De Montfort University, covering personal brand and profile when applying for placements. The session gave practical, accessible and achievable advice that students could identify with and put straight into practice. For example a simple role play about breaking into a conversation when networking was very funny and instructional. Bianca has a great tone for engaging with students - sincere, fun, and speaking to them as the adults that they are. Nothing seemed too much trouble and I'd recommend any university to invite The Be Group to their campus

Niami Collett
Widening Participation Officer
Bianca Miller of Be Employed UK delivered a ‘personal branding’ session to pupils in year 8 (14 year olds) as part of LSE’s ‘Promoting Potential’ Summer School. The pupils enjoyed the interactive nature of the session and were practising the network skills they had been taught long after the session had ended. The use of relevant visual aids, as well as Bianca’s ability to engage the cohort, meant the session was received positively, with 16 of the 19 pupils giving the session the highest rating of ‘Very good.’ LSE’s Widening Participation team will be using Be Styled UK to deliver pre-work experience sessions to our sixth form students on the Pathways to law programme and would highly recommend this service to organisations that are keen to develop the ‘softer skills’ and confidence that pupils often lack
