Dress Code

Prospective visitors sometimes ask us as to the dress code at our meetings. Our meetings, although structured and focussed, also have an informal and relaxed air about them so ladies wear whatever they would normally wear for their working day. It is important that you feel comfortable and not out of place, the typical attire for the meetings is smart to glam!

Business Cards and Promotional Material:

Please bring plenty around 25 business cards to the meeting to pass round, along with any other promotional material you have.

Monthly Minutes

At every Athena meeting we invite everyone to tell us about themselves and what business contacts or referrals they are seeking. With this in mind, please set a few minutes aside to plan and prepare your message for your monthly minute.

This is your opportunity to address the group with your networking requirements and lets us all know, how we as a group, can help your business grow this month. Who is it that you would like to be referred to? What service are you looking for that would improve your business.

We find our members Monthly Minutes entertaining and educational, helping us to understand where we can support your business. If it’s your first visit to Athena, this can be daunting, but we promise to provide a supportive environment and we can assure you that it does get easier with practice.

Many ladies who were daunted at first, find they actually come to enjoy delivering their Monthly Minute after a few meetings.

Please download the two educational guides to help you prepare your monthly minute; ‘A Minute To Win It’ and a template so that you can hone your Monthly Minute. Both of these documents are provided at New Member Training.

Invite a friend

We are expecting a number of visitors to attend the meeting in addition to the members, so you will have the opportunity to network with new visitors to Athena as well as experienced Athena members! It’s early enough to invite any of your contacts to the meeting, just send me an email with their details so I can add them to the list. Sometimes it’s nice to bring along a friend to share the experience.

If you have any questions please telephone our office on 0845 004 9262. We really look forward to meeting you.

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!
