The Athena Network® is for every woman keen to learn, share ideas and collaborate with others for mutual success – whether entrepreneur, professional, experienced executive or someone who has a great business idea.

 At Athena, we are committed to attracting the right women to attend our events; executives and entrepreneurs who are:

  • No woman is too senior or too junior to benefit from this networking opportunity.

We only allow one person from a profession to join each network lunch group, this helps avoid any conflicts of interest.  When you decide to join us you will have professional exclusivity within your group which ensures that you are the one that members think about when it comes to referring business. 

Membership is open to professional business women who own their own businesses.  It is also open to women employed by companies in roles where they are responsible for generating business and gaining new clients. 

We welcome a wide variety of professions, view our member’s details for a full appreciation of professions who choose to join us and expand their network.

You can visit a group near you to find out how we can help you grown your business.  Once you’ve visited a group you can then decide for yourself if our organisation is right for you and your business.   We do find that the majority of ladies who visit make a decision to join us immediately.

Membership is by application only.  If the group you are applying to join already has the profession represented, then we will source another group for you.

You can apply for membership at the end of the meeting; speak to the Membership Secretary for the group who will be happy to help you.
