Business After Hours at MGSM (Review)

Members and guestsMeghna Buch and the team from MGSM Executive Centres hosted our April Business After Hours and gave members and guests a taste of the professional and friendly MGSM experience.

MGSM is the perfect place for your conference or meeting, with rooms that cater from 10 to 150 and the associated MGSM Executive Hotel and Lachlans Restaurant.

And of course MGSM runs its own Executive Education. Find out more at
