Cappuccino Connections are informal group sessions for Athena members to provide you with the opportunity to network with members from your surrounding Athena groups and to give you the flexibility of a drop-in place, somewhere useful to catch up with one another and even have your One-2-Ones.
we attract around 10-15 local business women who turn up for a coffee, for however long it suits them to network and at a time that is convenient to them.
It’s an opportunity to make contact with local business ladies and to spend time building those all important business relationships.
It may seem like a long time between Athena meetings and we don’t always get the opportunity for as many One-2-One meetings with each other as we would like, so this gives you the time and space to have several One-2-One meetings all under one roof.
For those of you who aren’t members and who haven’t visited an Athena group yet, Cappuccino Connections is a great ice breaker for those of you who are new to Athena and/or to networking. Meeting our Athena members at these drop in mornings, enables you to get to know some new contacts and can really help to melt the ice so you feel comfortable about attending a full on networking meeting thereafter.
Visitors are welcome to attend on two occasions to get a feel of the group and the members (there is a £5 meeting fee for visitors although it is free for Athena members – you simply pay for your favourite beverage separately).
There is no structure as such although we try and encourage you to talk and get to know the members and other visitors and you are welcome to turn up at any time … spread the word, we would love to meet you.
