Perthshire Businesswomen’s Network is run by a voluntary committee drawn from the business community in Perthshire and who are re-elected on an annual basis.

Everyone on the committee commits to give their time and expertise to the running of the organisation. They are all busy women so if you do get in touch, please be patient and please don’t expect an immediate answer – some of them are juggling running their own business with their committee commitments.
