Our Story, from networking novices to networking experts

It all started with Michael Thomas, founder of and Home of DARWIN, award-winning marketing consultancy. came about as a result of many conversations and questions he was asked.

After networking for over a decade, it's safe to say that Michael knows his stuff. He has attended several different groups and even led networking groups in his time. And the common denominator with all of these groups? Michael has been successful at every single one of them. And people noticed.

Fellow networkers kept on asking Michael how he'd managed to make business networking so successful for him. How it became the most consistent source of new business for us. And how we became networking experts.

Like all great ideas, out of those conversations, the Academy was created. And here we are, able to share a proven plan to help people succeed as Michael has. This proven plan comes in the form of fantastic networking courses – courses that we are so confident about, we offer the DARWIN Difference Guarantee, meaning that you either get better at networking, or you get your money back.
