    Event Description


    Welcome to the Henley group meeting details page. If you are a businesswoman in Reading, (and surrounding areas) I know that you will want to find out more before you attend one of our meetings so I’ve provided meeting dates and times as well as a list of current members and their professions.

    Henley is a popular, dynamic and vibrant group where you can be assured of excellent business connections. Meet local businesswomen and step out of the isolation so many female entrepreneurs can feel.

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

    This group meets on the 2nd Thursday of the month from 12 – 2 pm (excluding August & December). Below you’ll find details of our current members and their professions, including how you can get in touch with them.


    You know that continuing to develop your business relationships, nurture your suppliers and create strategic alliances is important so we invite you to become a member of The Athena Network.

    Membership is only £565 per annum*.

    We can provide a payment plan that would include an upfront payment of £325 and a monthly subscription of £20.

    *NOTE: You are committing to a 12-month membership.

    Membership of The Athena Network will give you access to all of our membership benefits including PASS+ which means that you can currently attend 150+ meetings (at no additional cost), Cappuccino Connections (informal networking), an extensive training portfolio and all the connections within our network.


    We would love to meet you. Assuming that your profession is not already covered in our group you would be very welcome to attend our meeting. See the list of members for reference.

    The ideal is that you book in advance so that I can support you by sending all the information in advance and you can prepare for the meeting.

    Complete the contact form with your details; name, email, profession and telephone number and I will be in touch.

    Alternatively, you can call or send me an email. Leave a message (I’m often in meetings) with clear details so that I can return your call)
