Our Events

Our events and meet ups run all round the country throughout the year. They take the form of informal seminars, where we have established female entrepreneurs sharing their stores and secrets, and social get togethers, which are about meeting other entrepreneurial women for a bit of a drink and a chat. You are welcome to attend both, just register as a member of Make It Your Business. Membership is free.
