What attendees are saying about these breakfast sessions..

“I have attended the networking sessions organised by Louise Mace and found them to be enjoyable and very engaging. The value for me includes talking with the other attendees in the broad areas of the aged care industry and learning about their business, ideas, experiences and challenges. The speakers are also very insightful and I often quote a message from one of the speakers. Louise always chooses a very nice venue which makes it even more appealing to attend”.
