My Year in Athena – the journey so far!! – Jo Baldwin-Trott

To say I dragged my heals along to my first Athena networking meeting would be a huge understatement! Having qualified as a Colour, Style and Cosmetic Consultant 4 years previously (although had not committed any real time to developing a business) I really didn’t believe my friend who had talked me into visiting; that it […]

What Athena Members Say …

Nicky Fitzmaurice

"Athena Networking has been the making of me! I have made more friends and learnt more about business tools and networking strategy in the last year than I ever thought possible. Athena’s focus on training members to be the best that they can be, whilst in a supportive and nurturing environment, gave me the confidence to learn and grow which in turn allowed my business to do the same. It is this, that is the heart of Athena. No hard sell amongst the members, we encourage one another to help where we can. I always come away from a meeting inspired and bubbling with ideas on how to grow my business. It’s a fabulous way to live, learn and grow. Nicky Fitzmaurice www.satinpaperbacks.com

“The Athena network can be distinguished from any other networking group I attend. Its structure and form mean that members who attend are committed and dedicated to proactive networking which on turn achieves tangible results.  This benefits me and my firm,  in just a two  hour monthly meeting I have the opportunity to talk to other business women about me, my business and what I need and how I can be helped.  The environment for delivering this is focused and professional. As a result referrals are made and recommendations given which, for me achieves increased clients and in turn builds greater contacts.  As a busy business women Athena also provides a forum to connect with other business women on a social / friendship basis so “all work and no play does not make this Jill a dull girl” Athena motivates me, strengthens my vision, equips and endorses me but most of all provides the fuel every business women needs to keep raising her game and stepping up to the mark.”

Rosie Mortimer

Working mostly on my own, I really appreciate the positive camaraderie of the Athena women. Whatever need or concern one has, there is always someone able, and enthusiastically willing, to help with good advice. I find the interaction tremendously stimulating and enjoyable - and highly instructive. A wonderful group to see regularly, with excellent opportunities to meet other interesting and skilled women at training days. Thank you Athena!

Tracey Richardson

"I've been an Athena member since Rachel Maunder launched her first group in Hampshire. And I'm still a member because it has transformed my very individual business by providing me with the professional and personal support system I used to enjoy in corporate life at Marks & Spencer, before I was inspired to put my commercial skills at the disposal of the Third Sector. Whether it be IT products and services, social media training, business strategy advice, personal image consultation, financial advice and planning and last but by no means least great, supportive friends it's all at Athena NEHants."
