Rachel Blackburn was pleased to attend an action-packed day with ladies from around England who met in London to discuss the new initiative to encourage women to start and/or scale up their business. Currently only 17% of businesses in the UK are started by women.
The day included a trip to the Houses of Parliament, meetings inside Number 10, Downing Street and lunch at the Carlton Club.
The trip was organised by Alison Cork, the Founder of the Make It Your Business initiative. Rachel is the Norfolk Champion for the initiative which launches in Norwich on Friday 19 October.
"It was a fascinating day and we even saw Larry, the 10 Downing Street cat!" said Rachel.
