Meet Natalia DaCosta

Hi there, thank you for your interest and I hope that I’ll be able to welcome you to The Athena Network, Dorset very soon.

So a little about me….. With a background in corporate recruitment, mum of twins and an entrepreneur, I understand the challenges, often faced by women in business. And I’m here to support women with their personal development and business growth through networking.

As a Master NLP Practitioner and qualified coach, I established my consultancy practice  to support career driven women to find their version of success by aligning to their true purpose, realising their potential and creating impact.

Networking has been critical to my success. My experience as a multiple business owner is diverse, which brings a wealth of knowledge to my role as Regional Director.  I am a strong believer that it doesn’t have to be hard work. In fact, not only can the process be easy, but lots of fun too. Even for a natural introvert like me. 

I’ve been running the Dorset Region since 2017, a year after I relocated from London with my family. When I discovered that The Athena Network was not yet present in the area, I decided to fill the gap and create a vibrant local community through taking on the franchise.

I am committed to the growth of each individual member, and the region as a whole and I love supporting women at whatever stage of business they’ve achieved.

So if you’re curious to find out more before you book to attend a meeting, then I’d invite you to book a Chemistry Call at a time that suits you, so that we can explore if what we do is a good fit for you and your business.


The Dorset territory is made up of two groups; Bournemouth and Ferndown.

Both of them are popular, dynamic and vibrant groups where you can be assured of excellent business connections, to meet local business women and step out of the isolation so many female entrepreneurs can feel.

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

Ferndown meets on the 3rd Tuesday of the month from 10am – 12pm (excluding August & December).

Bournemouth meets on the 3rd Thursday of the month from 10am – 12pm (excluding August & December).

Check out the group meetings to find details of our current members and their professions.

Call me, Natalia DaCosta on 07950 215156 or drop me a quick email at natalia.dacosta@theathenanetwork.com to find out how you can visit and then join our group.
