There’s an event being held this week in Aix to bring together women from across the area who want to promote their activities, whether they have a business or a club or a blog.

Rebecca Ronane launched Network Provence in 2015 to reach out to local women who would welcome a supportive group to increase their contacts but also to share experiences.  Her membership has grown, along with the number of events, and she now offers coaching sessions and personal development workshops.

On Tuesday, Apryl Zarfos Anderson will be doing the mini presentation which is ’The world needs you to come out of your closet; How your wardrobe holds the key to your super powers’. Sounds fascinating!

Date: Tuesday 2 April, 15:00-17:00

Venue: Ibis Hotel, ave des Infirmieres, Aix.

Details: 10€ per meeting, or 50€ annual membership.  http://www.networkprovence.com for info.
