The Hungerford group meeting takes place at Audley Inglewood on Friday 8th July where Clare Sheffield from S&T Design will be discussing how great brands use smart thinking and Athena regional director Debbie Miles will be talking about value propositions – encouraging the group to focus on what is unique about their business in terms of the customer benefits.
At the Newbury West meeting at The Red House in Marsh Benham on Thursday 14th July, Dale Campbell of Trademark Tribe will explain trademark terminology and give real life examples of why it is important to protect your brand while Debbie Miles will discuss creating connections in business.
The Thatcham group meeting takes place at the Regency Park Hotel on Tuesday 19th July where Sarah Bromham of Radiance Therapy will be running a practical exercise to help guests get the most from their one-to-one meetings, and Sheila Bond of Living Well Mindfulness will be explaining how mindfulness can boost business performance through enhanced creativity.
Lastly, the Newbury Central group meeting takes place at Donnington Valley Golf Club on Wednesday 20th July where Margaret McDonnell will speak on public relations for small businesses. Debbie Miles will be encouraging visitors and members to help each other find solutions to their business challenges.
Debbie Miles said: “It’s our last meeting before a summer break, so a good time to reflect on the ways that Athena can help small businesses with creating connections and providing support. All meetings take place from 12pm to 2pm and if you’d like to try it out, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.”
