Jess Jones' story 'From expulsion to entrepreneur'

It was an absolute delight to have Jess speak at our WBS Networking Event in May ’16. Jess was a very engaging speaker. She had a real passion for women in regional areas and a drive to get them connected. She really tapped into the benefits of collaboration and networking. She also talked about finding your passion, and focusing on what you love.
