I’m been doing it for years. Lots of us have been, just putting people in touch with one another, enjoying the connections.
But now I have joined Athena Women’s and I am having a great time. My group is ideal for me – I’m in Highworth, part of the Swindon region run by the lovely Rachel Goddard. And I am really impressed.
This is organised networking. You all get to have a business card from everyone present; each person stands up and introduces themselves in a 1-minute presentation, then you make your connections. More than that though, it is very supportive, and I have moved forwards in leaps and bounds in such a very short time.
Ladies, I recommend this group very highly indeed. If you are a lady in business, I urge you to find the nearest group to you and join – fast!
