Hello <<First Name>> 

Phew, what happened to May? Did anyone else blink and suddenly it was June? Maybe we were distracted meeting lots of fantastic purpose-led brands who've joined the Club or were caught up in discussions with partners about new offerings for the network.. what ever it was, we don't mind - it's been a fantastic month!

And we are expecting a great month ahead with many opportunities to connect with like-minded people, support interesting initiatives and to grow your business. We've collated some of these for you below to make it easier to find.
