On Thursday 17th January, more than 70 business men and women from across Herts, Beds and Bucks met at Millbrook Venues for an exciting day of high-speed pro-drives, professional networking and inspiring presentations.
Organised by Bedfordshire BusinessWomen (BBW) and in partnership with Mercedes-Benz of Bedford, Millbrook Venues welcomed professionals from across the region to its unique and exciting events facility, where highly skilled pro-driver, David Charlton took 27 delegates on a track tour around the proving ground.
We had a great event yesterday with over 35 members and guests booked in at the wonderful Embankment Hotel.

Well here we are again, the end of another year. Whatever your business, the end of the year is a great time for reflection, and I for one will use it as a time to look back over the past twelve months, consider the highs and lows and review my ambitions and targets. The New Year can even prompt us to make life-changing decisions; as the saying goes “out with the old and in with the new”.
Whatever path you choose to take in 2013, I cannot stress enough how important it is to have good supportive networks, especially if you are in business on your own; to boost you when you feel alone, to offer support and advice through both the good and bad times and to share in the celebration of your successes. Decisions always seem easier when you have someone to bounce ideas off in your personal life, and this goes for your business life too.
