What do our members think of events?

"The Whitehorse Business Group has been fundamental to building my freelance copywriting business. The 'Women in Business' lunch was the first event I attended over 2 years ago and the networking from that day kick started my business. Events are welcoming, without pressure and always well organised. Laura and the board have supported my business since the beginning and the work I've done for the Group has opened doors. It's great to be part of such a supportive local business community."
