Very recently event photography got an extra layer of special meaning as I provided my services to an institution that’s very close to my heart, in a part of the city that I call home – Athena Network West London. The region includes 5 areas: Hammersmith, Chiswick, Shepherds Bush, Barnes and Ealing, and it’s run by Regional Director Lisa Woodward, the driving force behind LW Consulting.
If it still needs an introduction, the Athena Network is all about helping women to develop stronger skills, more profitable businesses and create growth opportunities for career success. Launched in October 2005, it is a leading International networking, training and development business club for business women and female entrepreneurs.
At its core the Athena group is a community of inspirational leaders dedicated to great collaborations for professional success. The focus is to provide women with specialist training and advice, welcoming members and visitors in a relaxed, mutually supportive and ethical environment.
And being part of the network myself as a professional portrait, event and wedding photographer, capturing these mini-events was not only natural and fun, but a great way to connect with amazing local businesses lead by female entrepreneurs like marketing specialist Emmie Faust, business consultant Lisa Woodward, digital antrepreneur Silvia del Corso, business coach Margaret Guillen, graphic designer Angela Zeballos, web designer Helen Bantock, Alex Willis of DoTerra Oils and so many more. Does that sound exciting? Why don’t you visit us and see for yourself what makes such an amazing community!
