I have been a member of 1230 TWC, the business women’s network, for over a year now.
Jackie Groundsell, the founder, is always very supportive and professional. The meetings are always relaxed, fun, inspirational and informative, and I always look forward to each monthly meeting.
I particularly enjoy our visiting speakers, whom Jackie invites to fill any ‘knowledge gaps’ we may have in our businesses, and the support I receive from Jackie and the other members.
Since being a member of 1230 TWC, I have met some wonderful people who have helped me in my personal and business growth.
Thank you Jackie!
