Brighton & Hove

The Athena Network Brighton & Hove

You will find information regarding meeting dates and times, venue location and a list of current members and their professions below.

This is a vibrant and friendly group, conveniently located on the Brighton seafront, overlooking the Pier. There is even free parking for attendees (a rarity in Brighton & Hove!)

Meeting Format

The event begins at 12 with coffee or tea on arrival and half an hour of free networking before we sit down for lunch and the formal part of the meeting begins. Everyone gets a chance to speak for a minute about who they are and what they do, and we do a business card shuffle. There are two training sections – a Networking Strategy Training and a Business Support Topic, as well as a chance for people to refer business, give a testimonial or book a 1:1 meeting. We finish at 2 pm, so as to allow people to go on to another meeting, do the school run or get some more work done that afternoon. Tea/coffee, a main course and soft drink are included in your meeting fee.

Visiting a Group / Becoming a Member
Everyone is welcome to attend one Athena meeting as a visitor without obligation to go on and become a full member. You will have an opportunity to talk to me about future membership, either during the meeting or in a follow up phone call. If you’d like to book a place at the next meeting, please check that the slot for your profession isn’t already taken (to avoid competition and increase support and collaboration, we have a policy of one member per profession in each group.

How To Book: We require payment on booking. Please click here and we’ll send an invoice, further instructions on how to get the most out of your meeting and lunch choices for the day.
