Woman Who was the first Networking organisation I visited when we moved to Warwickshire, the impact of the talks given by local inspirational business women gave me the confidence to move my embryonic business forward. It’s with honour that I can put back into the group the support and confidence it gave me, by becoming a Sponsor for the Woman Who Awards 2019.” Sue Tonks
