Welcome To The Athena Network
Bedford Group Event Details
Meet Your Event Host
After a 15-year career in the financial sector, I have run networking groups in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire for a number of years after shifting my focus from corporate life to my own business success and my family. I LOVE being a connector and introducer for those looking for each other’s services and building networking confidence in others. Personal development and connecting with like-minded people were key to my success in my businesses. We are the average of the 5 people we spend most time with and as one of my members says "Athena ups your average"! One of my favourite quotes, from Henry Ford, is “Whether you think you can, or whether you think you can’t, you’re right” and I actively help fellow entrepreneurs to appreciate that they already have in them what they need to succeed and that what has happened previously is not what matters, but what they choose to do now. Everyone is entitled to greatness, and everyone has something of value to share.View Profile
