Bedfordshire Business Women welcomed some men into the fold on Thursday for a high speed day out at Millbrook.

More than 70 business men and women from across Herts, Beds and Bucks met for an exciting day of pro-drives, networking and presentations.

The event was organised by Bedfordshire Business Women (BBW) in partnership with Mercedes Benz of Bedford, and saw 27 delegates taking part in a high speed track tour.

Amanda Murrell, president of BBW, said: “We are really pleased with the success of this year’s BBW Man Day event.

“I would like to thank all of our partners and guests who helped us raise more than £740 for our 2013 charity, the Road Victims Trust.”

She added: “Millbrook Venues offered us something totally different for this year’s event and enabled us to give delegates much more time to network and increase their new business opportunities. Many of our guests commented on our exciting choice of venue as they arrived on site at Millbrook Proving Ground.”

Delegates also heard from Steve Ottoway, chief executive of the Road Victim’s Trust who was the event’s guest speaker. The trust is BBW’s chosen charity for the year. James Bayliss, of Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service, and Colin Gleghorn of the training company Fourmative also gave speeches on the day.
