Meet Sheila Bennett

Hello, I’m Sheila, Regional Director of the West London region and I hope to be able to welcome you along as a visitor to one of our meetings very soon.

Visiting a new network can be daunting, but I promise you’ll find our groups to be nothing but warm and welcoming, striking that tricky balance between a professional, business-minded network and a very human hub of women who are striving to build a business, just like you.

Whether you’d like to book some time for a chat about how everything works, or just dive right in to book a visit, I’m here to support you in your next steps.

Networking has opened countless doors for me as a business owner, since I hung up my heels and plunged into running my own business back in 2012. Over the years I’ve found clients, suppliers, support, growth and friendship, and even as a natural introvert I can’t imagine not being part of this world. I believe this is a priceless part of your business growth, particularly as a one woman band.

I now run a successful coaching and consulting company, helping solo service-providers step up to the next level of their business and thrive in their role as CEO. Alongside the core of my business, I find great joy in leading the West London region of The Athena Network and witnessing the success, friendships and connections our members forge.

This is ‘women supporting women’ at its best.

I hope you’ll come along and experience it for yourself. 

Want to know more about joining the West London Region?


The West London Region is made up of four wonderful groups.

All of them are popular, dynamic and vibrant memberships, 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 our members pride themselves on the strategic connections that they have created, collaborating with each other to create new projects and services.

Each group meets monthly online from 12pm – 2pm (with the exception of August and December).

Monthly Meeting Dates 

West London meets on the 1st Friday of each month.

Barnes meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

Chiswick meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month.

Hammersmith & Shepherd’s Bush meets on the 4th Thursday of each month.

In addition to out signature meetings, West London members also meet in person on the 3rd Friday of each month.

Want to visit The Athena Network West London?

Athena West London members get together in person once a month for informal networking.

Membership of The Athena Network will give you access to all of our membership benefits including PASS+ which means that you can currently attend 150+ meetings (at no additional cost), Cappuccino Connections (informal networking), an extensive training portfolio and all the connections within our network.



PASS+ gives you FREE access to an Athena meeting, there are no additional fees to be paid and this is another benefit of membership. You are encouraged to visit as many other meetings as you have time for (please ensure that you have sufficient time to follow up from your meetings).

ALL of this is included in your annual membership.  Our usual meeting guidelines apply, which means there will be no professional clashes at the meetings, and the Regional Director/Ambassador will manage the dynamics of the mix of industries to ensure that everyone attending has an outstanding experience.
