The Ladies and Gentlemen that Lunch business networking club is launching two new branches.

Already established in Oxford and Henley, founder Chantal Cornelius is expanding her empire to venues in the Banbury and Witney areas.

She said: “Our aim is to bring together key influencers, excellent speakers and local businesses to encourage discussion, discuss key topics and keep business thriving.”

Guest speaker at the Banbury launch event is motoring journalist and TV presenter Penny Mallory.

The Witney launch event will welcome Melanie Green, a chartered occupational psychologist at Inspire Transformation, a business consultancy, training and coaching provider.

The Ladies and Gentlemen that Lunch Club launches at The Inn at Farnborough, near Banbury on June 1 and at Eynsham Hall, North Leigh, near Witney on July 13.
