Established all-female network, Ladies do Latte, held its first Exeter event in the heart of the city on Tuesday 1st  March at ‘Circa 1924’.

Responding to member needs, organisers Ashley Petrons and Christelle Bonnel of Make it Marketing chose to host the event at lunchtime, rather than the traditional mid-morning meeting. Christelle says, “Being marketers through and through, we have been asking members what they would like from the network. Of course, you can never please everyone, but by at least asking we’re in with a much better chance of success.”
