Lara Lauder

I have been a member of The Athena Network for 6 years and became a Regional Director for West Berkshire in 2023! I have always loved the Athena way of networking because it truly is a support with and from like-minded ladies. I was delighted to take on the West Berkshire region which is a natural progression of my prior networking expertise and growth. As well as being the Regional Director I run a successful business showing professional ladies around the globe how to unlock their hidden confidence. I achieve this through business and strategy training. uplevelling their presentation skills and discovering their colour and style through image consultancy. I am also host of the global podcast 'Unlock Your Hidden Confidence.'
