Five Opportunities for Summer Business Growth with Athena

Written by Paula Devine | 25 Jun 2018

Do you need a boost in your business before the break for summer?

As the weather warms up (finally) and we head towards a relatively quiet season and well deserved summer break – have you thought to ramp up your networking activity to provide the growth and momentum you need to start Q3 and Q4 strong?

Female business owners and executives from Beds and beyond will be meeting at Athena Network meetings in Woburn, Wyboston and Luton in July. The Athena Network runs structured lunchtime meetings with support, training and connection, providing you with the launch pad to grow your business.

Athena is the leading business development and networking club for female business owners and executives.

Face to face networking remains a powerful way to grow your business, perhaps surprisingly in the age of smartphones and social media.

For freelancers and small business owners, it’s a great way of meeting other local businesses, doing business or looking for potential alliances, which often lead to business diversification and growth.

Cappuccino Connections (Kings House, Bedford): Thursday 5th July 12pm to 2pm
Athena Wyboston (Waterfront Hotel): Tuesday 17th July 12pm to 2pm
Athena Woburn (Swan at Salford): Thursday 19th July 12pm to 2pm
Athena Luton (South Beds Golf Club): Tuesday 24th July 12pm to 2pm
