Emma Ratcliffe

"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."
