I am a huge advocate of networking and joined a women’s only networking group in January 2020 called Athena. I have had the pleasure of meeting many wonderfully skillful and talented businesswomen since then, it is a fantastic organisation.
We support each other’s challenges, celebrate each other wins and hold each other accountable to our commitments. It is a fabulous group, and I feel very privileged to be part of it.
Outside of Athena I have made some equally wonderful connections through other networking groups, too many to mention but I would like to celebrate Deb Mason, Nicky Thomas, Jane Redhead, Denise de Groot, Gina Gee Mann, Minna Wood, Melanie Gard, Fiona McBride, Sue Raison, and Anne Reece.
Apologies to anyone I haven’t named, my life is richer for all my female friends, and acquaintances. Some of the most random meetings have touched me deeply.
Thanks to all the women who have supported me on my journey so far, I am especially thinking of those who are no longer here and the special memories I have with them.
It is also important to think of all the women who are living in desperate circumstances, dealing with unimaginable poverty, and suffering, my heart goes out to these brave women.
