Ann is also a sponsor of the Woman Who…Awards 2017. She says:
I’m absolutely thrilled, honoured and so excited to be a part of the Women Who Awards 2017. I had the pleasure of attending the 2016 event, and was completely inspired and moved by the stories of success, determination and sheer grit! Athena Focusses exclusively on female executives and entrepreneurs, and The Athena Network provides a platform for members to share knowledge and experience across a diverse range of industry sectors, and to collaborate for mutual success. The partnership between The Women Who Awards and Athena Network is a perfect combination to develop and grow women in business within our region. I’m looking forward to seeing Athena Members at the forthcoming Women Who Networking events too. (Ann Burton, The Athena Network Warwickshire)
