There is always the question, should I give HER Business Networking a go?? Is this the right time? Well that’s something that of course you’ll decide for yourself but we believe whether the economic climate is good, bad or ugly you can never have too many business contacts. So give it ago, meet some great ladies, listen to some great speakers, learn something new and enjoy your time out of the office!
