The impact of the recent budget on West Berkshire businesses was the hot topic for discussion at The Athena Network’s Newbury north meeting which took place today (Wednesday), with further meetings planned throughout the month.
Rachel Slater of Griffins accountants and business advisers discussed the key changes that the budget is going to have on the area.
The Hungerford meeting for the group will also be held on April 10 at Audley Inglewood with Liberal Democrat prospective parliamentary candidate Judith Bunting there for news and views on running a business in West Berkshire.
The Thatcham group will then meet on Tuesday April 21 at the Regency Park Hotel where Sam Crowe from ‘Make it Be’ will discuss her ‘fail-safe guide to writing a marketing plan that meets your goals.’
Finally the Newbury South meeting will be held at La Tasca on April 22 featuring Claire Burdett from the Media Marketing Co who will be giving advice on how to get websites to the top of search lists through utilising social media.
Regional director for The Athena Network Debbie Miles said: “We’ve got an exciting line-up of speakers this month and don’t forget that we also have a networking group on Friday April 24 from 10pm at Strada.”
The Cappuccino Connections event is open to local businesswomen and costs £5 to attend, and you do not need to be a member of Athena to join.
