I found my first Little Black Dress dinner with Janine totally inspiring. It was comforting to be with a group of women that I do not see on a day to day basis as they gave intelligent objective insight into certain matters that we discussed and it felt that we could talk openly and yet in a respectful private atmosphere. On the business side of things, I was impressed with the calibre of achievements of the group – each with their own story to tell and the sort of people that seem to put their words to action rather than just talk. The food was great – the company was great and Janine’s famous unique and scrumptious trademarked cocktail was a great way to start the night! Can’t wait to attend the next one. Thank you Janine.
