Cappuccino Connections - informal networking with Athena

Cappuccino Connections meetings are informal drop-in networking sessions for Athena members and visitors. They provide an opportunity to network with members from surrounding Athena groups with the flexibility of a ‘drop-in’ to build business relationships and strategic connections. It is also a great opportunity for those ladies who haven’t visited an Athena group to attend, Cappuccino Connections is a great ice breaker for many new to Athena and/or to networking. Meeting many Athena members at these drop in mornings, can really help to melt the ice so you feel comfortable about attending an Athena group meeting. Visitors are welcome to attend one meeting, there is no structure and you are welcome to turn up at anytime … spread the word, we would love to meet you. At some meetings one of our members will answer questions on an area of her professional expertise. We encourage Athena members to be our 'expert' in our 'Ask the Expert' slot - contact Linda Huckle, Regional Director to book. We occasionally have a 'Round Table' at some meetings where a business challenge is discussed and ideas are generated. These sessions usually take place at around 10:45am for about 30 mins.
