 Meet AnYes van Rhijn


AnYes van Rhijn has twenty-five years of corporate experience in senior positions. Over eighteen years ago, she set up her own coaching boutique in France, where she worked as an Executive Coach in Change Management and Leadership Development.

Eight years later, she repositioned herself as a Life and Business Transformation Mentor for women 50+ who want more from life. Known as The Queen of Reinvention, she is a walking example that it is never too late to reinvent yourself. 

AnYes is particularly gifted at teaching you how shifting your mindset and implementing the right support system can help you reach your full potential in your professional and personal life.


AnYes’ Passions

She is a French citizen who has been strongly influenced by her Dutch roots. She considers herself a citizen of the world and has moved to London in July 2015. She loves the high energy, the pulse and the cosmopolitan atmosphere that is so particular to London.

AnYes is a true connector and networker. She also firmly believes in the power of collaboration, which is why she founded her own network of forty+ international coaches, trainers and consultants in fifteen different countries some ten years ago and led it for four years until she decided to leave France.

She joined Athena Central London when she arrived in London, and it was obvious to her when the Central London franchise was offered for sale that this had to be for her. AnYes has moved to Croatia on November 1st, 2024 and now runs her region remotely.

AnYes believes Athena is the perfect place for women to connect, achieve, and grow both professionally and personally, and she is thrilled to be able to help women in business this way.


I proudly manage the Central London region of The Athena Network.

The groups I run are South-Kensington, Fitzrovia, and Mayfair.

All of them are popular, dynamic and vibrant groups where you can be assured of excellent business connections, meet local business women and step out of the isolation so many female entrepreneurs can feel.

All members pride themselves on their strategic connections and collaborations with each other to create new projects and services.

South Kensington meets on the 1st Wednesday of the month from 12 – 2 pm (excluding August & December).

Fitzrovia meets on the 2nd Wednesday of the month from 12 – 2 pm (excluding August & December).

Mayfair meets on the 2nd Thursday of the month from 12 – 2 pm (excluding August & December).

Check out our group meetings for details of our current members and their professions.

Call me via WhatsApp on +385 95 3522 509 to find out how you can visit to experience how networking The Athena Way can benefit you and your business.

“Athena has enabled me to connect with so many other wonderful women that I would otherwise never have had the opportunity to meet. Through these women I have learnt, been inspired and supported, met other people and gained work. If you haven’t tried Athena before then you don’t know what you’re missing.”

I am still a fairly new member to Athena and enjoy the support Athena provides through women all wanting to help each other succeed.

“One of my best business decisions has been joining my local Athena group. It seemed a little daunting at first, but I quickly settled in as all the ladies are incredibly supportive. I look forward to our monthly meetings, seeing everyones’ friendly faces and listening to the presentations of the month. It feels more than just networking; its meeting up with some friends, having a giggle, supporting each other….all very important when you run your own little business and are often at home, working by yourself. Wholeheartedly recommend Athena!”

“Athena was immensely useful when I started with a new business and it still is in so many ways. As a women’s magazine there is a natural synergy as we can connect with many great female run businesses in one organisation. The members provide us with content and also advertising revenue, but even more important is the way everyone supports each other and are great ambassadors for each other’s business.”
