Lauren Gilberthorpe is the most recent member to join our business networking group. Lauren set up her Cotswold based interior design company, LGI, in April of 2015 after leaving her role as a senior designer for a high-end interior design studio based in Oxford. She’s been working in interior design for almost 10 years and describes her style as eclectic classic-contemporary.
Why did you decide to join Juice?
I had heard nothing but good things from an ex-colleague and Juice member, Christina Taylor. She explained that it was a friendly but very professional business networking group and that she had found the referrals to be very good. I was made very welcome at my first meeting and I loved the fact that the meeting agenda changes weekly, so it keeps it interesting.
What are you hoping to gain from being a member?
I hope to make some great connections with local business owners with whom I can share referrals with. Also, to become part of a support network. As a solo business owner I love the 'Synergy' sessions and the fact that the members are very helpful and supportive of each other.
