Our members span the decades, offering you a great mixture of age, experience and mindful advice combined with the youthful enthusiasm and no-fear approach that comes when you’re just starting out. Skills are vast and cover many disciplines, industries and professions.  You will see social media experts sitting alongside financial planners; personal shoppers sharing a bottle of wine with accountants.   Members network with PBN for many reasons – some are trying to strike that elusive work-life-family balance, others have their eye on business expansion or a big promotion – together we are inclusive, supportive and driven towards helping one another achieve her aims.
