Meet Your Event Host

Kate Cherry

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.

    Key Speaker

    This months Business Development Speaker…

    On Wednesday 10th April Financial Planner, Katherine Pautard of Wealth Matters Financial Planning will be our Business Development Speaker at the Athena Bedford meeting.

    The title of her talk is ‘The Importance of Your Bucket List’. Katherine is a certified financial planner with 12 years industry experience. Her goal is to help make finances clearer and to help her clients plan for the future they want, not the one they think they can afford. Finances can be complex and time consuming, so she starts by getting to know her clients and what they want to achieve, before creating a financial plan for the future. Then they put those plans into action, reviewing them regularly to ensure everything stays on track.

    In this training, “I will be discussing the importance of having a financial plan and thinking about your goals. I will be showing a cash flow modelling tool, that we offer at wealth matters, to show how much money you need to save to draw the income that you want in ‘retirement’.”
