GROUP_CONCAT

I'm trying to return all rows from a Business table (where RegionID is 1) while joining all phone numbers for that Business from the BusinessPhoneNumber table into a concatenated string, in a new column (say PhoneNumbers). My understanding is this can be done with GROUP_CONCAT() - here is my current SQL:

SELECT * FROM `Business`
LEFT JOIN `BusinessPhoneNumber` ON `BusinessPhoneNumber`.`ParentID` = `Business`.`ID`
WHERE `Business`.`RegionID` = 1

Please provide an example that uses GROUP_CONCAT to place the BusinessPhoneNumber's in a comma separated columns. FYI - the phone number field in that table is simply Phone (BusinessPhoneNumber.Phone).
