Sophie Fleming

Hi, I’m Sophie. I’m an experienced networker, helping female entrepreneurs and executives to connect with the people, support and opportunities they need to grow their businesses. I graduated in environmental sciences in 2007, keen to somehow make a difference in the world. I tried out various roles within the sector but these mostly involved writing reports and doing data analysis, rather than what I most enjoy – connecting with people. With that in mind, I started volunteering on a child helpline. I found this so rewarding that I decided to leave the environmental sector and take on a new role as a referral line worker, connecting rough sleepers with outreach teams. I thought this would be my dream job but soon got burnt out by the 12-hour night shifts and daily abuse I was receiving on the phone. It was around this time that I was offered the opportunity to start my own business in health and wellness, something which ran alongside my full-time job until I mustered up the confidence to quit. It was my business as an Arbonne consultant that eventually led me to The Athena Network. I joined the Hampstead group in January 2016 and only a few months into my membership an opportunity presented itself – to become the regional director for North London. It struck me as an ideal way to hone in on my passion for both connecting with people and helping them. I took over the region in August that year and now run four thriving groups – Hampstead, Primrose Hill, Muswell Hill and Finchley, and St John’s Wood – with regular monthly meetings, drop-in sessions and quarterly masterclasses. Now I feel I’m really making a difference to the lives of the business and corporate women in the groups I run. And now, as an experienced networker, natural connector and supporter of women in business, I get so much from helping these inspiring and driven women grow personally and professionally. Most of all, I love seeing them thrive. I really enjoy being the person that brings everyone together, that helps make things happen through an introduction, referral, or just by sharing my ideas and support. What’s more, I have so much fun organising and hosting the Athena meetings and always come away feeling more inspired and energised – as do the members. Do get in touch to see if I can help you make the right connections for your business and to be part of the growing, thriving community that I’ve helped to create.

    Event Description

    Cappuccino Connections is an informal, drop in session for Athena members providing them with an opportunity to network with members from surrounding Athena groups and the flexibility of a ‘drop-in’ useful to catch up with one another. This is an event for the  North London region  including our group members in Primrose Hill, St John’s Wood, Hampstead, Muswell Hill and Finchley if you are also based in and around  Camden, Chalk Farm, Kilburn, Kensal Rise, Maida, Queens Park,  Crouch End, Highgate, Mill Hill, Hendon and Islington  and Belsize Park areas then please book a ticket. 

    Typically we attract around 10-20 local business women who turn up for a coffee, for however long it suits them to network and at a time that is convenient to them.

    It’s the opportunity to make contact with local business ladies and to spend time building those all important business relationships.

    It may seem like a long time between Athena meetings and we don’t always get the opportunity for as many 1-2-1 meetings with each other that we would like. Come and have several 1-2-1 meetings under one roof!

    For those ladies who haven’t visited an Athena group, Cappuccino Connections is a great ice breaker for many new to Athena and/or to networking. Meeting many Athena members at these drop in mornings, can really help to melt the ice so you feel comfortable about attending a full on networking meeting.

    There is no structure and you are welcome to turn up at anytime.

    Remember to bring plenty of business cards with you!

    Cost: Athena members FREE, Visitors £30 (if this is your first informal meeting and have not attended a formal meeting yet, your £30 will be waived should you choose to visit an Athena formal meeting).

    Location: Terra Terra, 120 Finchley Road, NW3 5JB- nearest Station Finchley Road tube station.
