What Athena Members Say …

"I have been a member of the Petersfield Athena group since July 2015. Athena was my first networking group, and I benefit immensely from the positive group spirit and the support and feedback we share during our meetings. They help me in my personal development as well, setting up strategic alliances and broadening my customer base both inside and outside of Athena."
Kerstin Ochel, Fashion Fantasies, member of Petersfield Tuesday.

"Having attended many networking groups, I have found the Athena meetings to be well organised, interesting and extremely friendly. This is a group of people who make you feel very welcome, and I have had really useful, supportive and collaborative one-to-one meetings."
Jan Spicer, The Company Transformation Group, member of Petersfield Tuesday.

"As a Head Teacher of a local primary school, being a member of Athena enables both the school to connect with and use local businesses and local businesses use the school to promote their work. it is a win-win situation! It is like our extended community business family! To see and learn from inspirational women leaders who have been on a wide range of learning journeys themselves, inspires school leaders to develop their own creativity. I thoroughly recommend this excellent partnership between education and local business!"
Sarah Palmer, Head Teacher, Camelsdale School, Haslemere, member at Liphook.

"I always love your events for the professionalism and authenticity. Your women are always such a delight and I am delighted my talk went down well."
Vanessa Louise Moore.

"What I value about my Athena membership is the opportunity to network in a friendly environment. The meeting structure works very well for me as it provides an appropriate level of formality whilst still retaining a supportive and friendly atmosphere. I really enjoy the meetings and the opportunities to visit other groups."
Nicola Green, Norad Travel, member at Liphook.
