A fast-growing support network for businesswomen in the Nottingham area is expanding with the launch of its third group in less than a year.
The continued growth and success of The Athena Network in the city since its first meeting in May 2014 has prompted Regional Director Bernadette Sarginson to launch another Athena Nottingham group next month.
Nottingham-born entrepreneur Bernadette said:
“I am absolutely delighted with how The Athena Network in the city has really flourished. We have two successful groups already, and all our members are passionate, generous, collaborative business women who are driven to succeed, whilst supporting each other in the process.
“We have a varied range of member businesses with many strategic business partnerships in place and much business being done. Our meetings, where we have a very successful one seat per profession policy and a robust, structured agenda, are relaxed, elegant and fun whilst having a strong business focus.”
The new Athena Nottingham group launches on Thursday 5th February 2015 from 12noon-2pm at The Beeches Hotel, West Bridgford. It will allow even more Nottingham women to make business connections and grow their business in an enjoyable and supportive, professional yet relaxed atmosphere.
Bernadette, founder of Empower Coaching and Training™ and professional organising business The DeClutter Doctor™ said:
“Our new group will give even more business women in Nottingham a chance to build authentic business relationships, develop their business skills and find new business without cold calling or high pressure selling.
“We inspire and support women towards success, and help to find business opportunities for each other, encouraging members to build strategic partnerships with each other and within their own networks. Within The Athena Network, we create opportunities for members to make strategic Bernadette Sarginson connections, accelerate business growth, and inspire success by developing members’ business and networking skills.”
The guest speaker for the launch event will be Ellen Watts author of Cosmic Ordering Made Easier (How to get more of what you want more often).
In 2014 Ellen was voted Author of the Year in the Women Inspiring Women national awards, is an Expert Authority Challenge winner, and has run her own training company for 18 years. She features in Kindred Spirit magazine this January talking about Cosmic Ordering v New Year’s Resolutions, and in February features in Soul & Spirit discussing Improving your confidence every day.
If you have big dreams and goals for 2015, things you would like to do, be, see and have, then come and find out how to do it all in an easier, more aligned way and with the Universe on your side.
In her talk, Ellen will be telling us what Cosmic Ordering is and how it can work for us, helping us get more of what we want, more often. Plus she'll be sharing some key lessons from her book including tips on how to prepare, place, recognise, receive and keep our Orders. And she's promised to share some of the massive (and some of the tiny, but amazing) successes and funniest mistakes and the lessons she's learned from them.
Athena Network meetings take place monthly (excluding August and December) from mid-day to 2pm with business building and speaking opportunities, business development and network strategy Ellen Watts training, guest speakers, connection to a growing international network, and resources including ecourses
and online business promotion.
The Athena Network is the leading international networking, training and development business club for female executives and entrepreneurs. A huge success since 2005, expanded now to Asia, each club is run by an entrepreneur local to their own region.
Jacqueline Rogers, Founder of The Athena Network, says:
“Part of the reason for success is the cooperative attitude between members. The meetings are structured, interactive, informative and professional whilst being fun and relaxed, providing the perfect combination for strong business partnerships as well as friendship.
“We create a vibrant, thriving and dynamic community of women entrepreneurs and executives who not only collaborate and connect with like-minded women, they learn and grow in the process.”
