Farnham East

Welcome to The Athena Network Farnham (East) Group!


Athena Farnham East – May 2017

Athena Farnham East celebrated its first birthday in May 2017. We have a vibrant, proactive and supportive membership who welcome visitors to come and meet us and to experience the Athena way of networking.

Giving businesswomen the “best possible chance to help their businesses grow” is one of the aims of The Athena Network.  Belonging to a supportive network is one of the key ingredients for success in today’s business world.

Athena meetings provide opportunities for local businesswomen to meet each other and find out about each others businesses, and to discover how being part of the Athena community brings connections, inspiration and success.

Group Meetings

Athena Farnham East meetings are held every 3rd Tuesday of the month (except August and December).

Our next meeting is on Tuesday 18th July and Farnham East member, Sara Lambourn, will be providing our business development training:

“Are You A Waiter or a Creator?”
Sara will help us to ponder on the ingredients we are currently putting into our businesses, and what kind of dish we are making. She will then encourage us to exchange anything not serving us well for top quality ingredients.

After the meeting there is optional open networking until 2:30pm when there will be opportunities to chat to members and arrange those all important one to one meetings. Linda and our Farnham East members will be available and happy to talk to you to answer any questions you may have about the Athena Way and membership opportunities.

"Having been an Athena member of Farnham for 1 year I can safely say what a great experience it is to network with other like minded business women. Our meetings are always at capacity and the business that is shared is always forthcoming." Emma Ratcliffe Accountant www.ejr-accounting.co.uk

Jane Redhead

"I joined the Athena Group in Farnham after only one visit as I was so impressed by both the friendliness of the group and the professionalism by which the group is run. Each meeting is organised very well and gives every member a chance to both network as well as have the opportunity to talk about their business. I have been looking to join a local networking group for quite a while now and this is by far and away the best group I have been to." Jane Redhead KallKwik Printers www.kallkwik.co.uk/farnham

Karen Chapman

"It doesn't matter whether you are a sole trader or part of a large organisation, the Athena Network gives you support, knowledge, connections and the camaraderie that is so important to keep you inspired and on track with your business. Athena is a very nurturing environment and you will always come away from the meetings inspired with a spring in your step and ideas bubbling over."
