“One of the things that has really struck me in my 3 years with Athena is the number of truly inspirational women I’ve met who otherwise might not have come to my attention. We read and hear a lot about successful men and occasionally about exceptional women who have either made millions or done something amazing. Through Athena I’ve of course met some of those exceptional women but I’m more inspired by the many unsung heroines I’ve met –  women who make a huge difference to their own lives and those of their families by running their business alongside their family responsibilities.”
