About West Berkshire Athena

The West Berkshire Athena Network is a leading international networking, training & development business club for female executives and entrepreneurs and small business owners. Local groups are in Newbury, Hungerford and Thatcham.  The groups meet monthly, except for an August break, and offer a full agenda of expert speakers on business topics.

West Berkshire organiser Debbie Miles welcomes any local business women who appreciate the support of other women and are passionate about their business products and services. The Athena brand of informative and collaborative networking can help new entrepreneurs who wish to kickstart their fledgling business, as well as established businesses that would like to move to the next level. It can be tough running a small business and apart from the business development, many members talk about the friendships they have developed.

The power of collaboration is the theme of the next month of meetings for West Berkshire’s Athena Network and also how we can get the most from our social media presence.

Visitors are always welcome but must book in advance. Please contact Debbie Miles on debbie.miles@theathenanetwork.com for more information

There are currently membership vacancies for:
Finance and Admin professionals (accountant, bookkeeper or admin support)
Creative women (interior or garden design, jeweller, milliner, artist or sculptor)
Health and Wellbeing professionals
Marketing, Sales and Business Coach professionals
