Take a look at what other female business leaders enjoyed about the Peer Networks Programme delivered by Pink Link.

Gerry Knight, Lakeland Retreats

“The Peer to Peer sessions were very well coordinated and well chaired by Coral and Jo. They ensured all participants were afforded sufficient time to present their piece and offered suggestions and ideas to help us reach
solutions to our issues and help us consider things we perhaps hadn’t thought of previously. It’s been great keeping in touch with all of the ladies and several connections have been made, both of a business and personal nature. I’d highly recommend the initiative and am very grateful of having had the opportunity to take part.”

Joan Lind, Trybooking UK

“I was initially hesitant – mainly driven by the time commitment, and also a degree of scepticism about what would be achieved. Jo Copoc was terrific and created a very encouraging and open environment where all delegates benefited. I was pleased to get some great ideas around one particular business issue – finding good sales staff for a digital platform within Cumbria. That said every session had value and a climate of great discussion, solutions, ideas and optimism”
