We had a great turnout for this event with over 30 members present. Rosie spent over 40 minutes sharing her journey from the world of business into the fascinating world of politics, before fielding questions from the group. She spent time both before and after the event mixing with members and their guests, and hearing about some of the opportunities and challenges facing West Lancashire businesses.
