Tring’s branch of a business women’s networking group will be celebrating its fourth anniversary at Champney’s on Tuesday, October 4.

The West Chilterns Region of The Athena Network has grown to 120 members in under four years, under the leadership of former heart surgery theatre sister Sylvia Baldock.

Caroline Walker of Unleash Marketing in Tring says: “Belonging to Athena has been tremendous for me. I have now been a member for 2½ years and it continues to inspire, challenge and motivate me. Through Athena I have become part of a supportive and dynamic business community, developed strategic partnerships with other members, identified a range of suppliers who I work with, and of course most importantly of all I’ve grown my business significantly.”

Established in 2005, The Athena Network was founded to provide women who were unable to commit to early breakfast networking meetings with opportunities to meet business women from a wide range of industry sectors from large corporates to sole traders.

Athena only allows one person per profession to join each regional group.
