Meet Debbie Diggle

Regional Director

Debbie was born and raised in Harrow and has not strayed far from her roots – she has only ever moved 8 miles north to Hertfordshire!

After leaving school, she went to the London College of Fashion to train in dress design, pattern-cutting and textiles. That wasn’t taxing enough so she then retrained in computer programming and analysis which kept her very happily employed until in 2001 she started planning her wedding and realised that there was nobody out there who could help with the finer details of the planning and then be there to help out on the day.

Following her wedding in 2002, Debbie decided to fill that gap in the market and Wedding Wonders was born. 2 years later, Debbie took the plunge and left the comfortable computing contract and realised that networking was a great way to build her business.

Being a people-person, Debbie thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to network with like-minded business women and having a chance to help others with their businesses.

Since joining Athena, she has never looked back and now, after being a Regional Manager for many years, she launched her first Watford group in October 2011. That was a runaway success so Debbie decided to bite the bullet and buy the South West Herts franchise in May 2012 and the region has gone from strength to strength!

In August 2013, Debbie bought the franchise of The Athena Network North Middlesex and is now running groups in Watford (2 groups), Bushey, Kings Langley, Rickmansworth, Harrow and Northwood.

There are exciting plans in the offing for 2018, so watch this space!
