Are You an Athena Woman?

The Athena Network is for every woman keen to learn, share ideas and collaborate with others for mutual success – whether entrepreneur, professional, experienced executive or someone who has a great business idea.

At Athena, we are committed to attracting the right women to attend our events; executives and entrepreneurs who are:

  • Focused with a professional mindset.
  • Positive and success oriented.
  • Dedicated to building long-term business partnerships.
  • No woman is too senior or too junior to benefit from this networking opportunity.

We only allow one person from a profession to join each network lunch group, this helps avoid any conflicts of interest.  When you decide to join us you will have professional exclusivity within your group.

Membership is open to professional business women who own their own businesses.  It is also open to women employed by companies in roles where they are responsible for generating business and gaining new clients.  We welcome a wide variety of professions, view our members details for a full appreciation of professions who choose to join us and expand their network.

You can visit a group near you to find out how we can help you grown your business.  Once you’ve visited a group you can then decide for yourself if our organisation is right for you and your business.   We do find that the majority of ladies who visit make a decision to join us immediately.

Membership is by application only.  If the group you are applying to join already has the profession represented, then we will source another group for you.

You can apply for membership at the end of the meeting; speak to the Membership Secretary for the group who will be happy to help you.

Telephone the local Regional Director to discuss your application and payment options.

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

“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!
