About Claire Powell

Regional Director of The Athena Network®

THE #1 Referral Network for Women

Meet Claire Powell



I am passionate about helping women support each other, and enabling people to get out of their own way to find so they can experience fulfillment and success, whatever that means to them. I believe that we are better together, captured beautifully in this quote:


If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.



As the Regional Director of The Athena Network Marlow and Maidenhead, it is such a delight and honour to support women in business through connections, training, and networking. Our members build deep long-term connections that drive authentic referrals and offer meaningful support and learning. Monthly online meetings and optional monthly in person gatherings, as well as over 150 further free-to-members online events, mean that relationship building opportunities are almost endless.

I have over 25 years of experience leading brands and businesses of all sizes, and as well as leading the Maidenhead region for Athena, I am an executive coach and brand strategy consultant. I love helping people to gain clarify around their goals and priorities, understand and manage their internal saboteurs, and become less stressed and more fulfilled. You can find out more about me and connect via Linked In.

I invite you to book a FREE Chemistry Check with me at a time that suits you. This will give you the opportunity to ask me any questions you may have prior to visiting and to discuss which group will be the best fit for you and your business.

Come along and experience one of our meetings to see if we are the right fit for you to help you grow.

I am the Regional Director of Maidenhead & Marlow.

I host a dynamic and vibrant group in Maidenhead where you can be assured of excellent business connections, to meet local business women and step out of the isolation so many female entrepreneurs can feel. It is supportive, business growth driving, and uplifting.

All of the members pride themselves on the strategic connections that they have created, collaborating with each other to create new projects and services.

The Maidenhead group meets on the 3rd Tuesday of the month from 12 – 2pm (excluding August & December).

Check out the group meeting information to find details of our current members and their professions.

Email me, Claire Powell at claire.powell@theathenanetwork.com to find out how you can visit a meeting to experience it for yourself.
