UK: The IoR Women in RACHP Networking Breakfast is back, providing a platform for current professionals working in the industry and wishing to further their careers.

The next free-to-attend event will be at the Bitzer UK head office in Milton Keynes on March 14. It will look at the range of different types of career that the refrigeration air conditioning and heat pump sector offers.
