(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Most businesswomen are familiar with the term ‘old boys club’ - an exclusive network of business men who can call in favours from their exclusive group to help close a deal, get new business or progress their career.

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – A UK survey reveals that 55 percent of 18-34 year olds, also known as Millennials, are switching brand loyalty, which should be a focus for businesses this holiday season during the battle for festive spending.
