"We are always happy to collaborate with Healthcare Sector specialists and our friends at Athena are certainly that. We have witnessed them creating either their own content rich scientific meetings, delivering therapy area specific education to the HCP community. They also have an established legacy in delivering high quality events for their corporate clients."
Mark Handforth - Director, Compliant Venues Ltd
"Athena is outstanding at delivering meetings. Sharon and her team have always delivered outstanding events and customer satisfaction to the highest level. They are not only great at the organisation of both large and small events but the way that the team are able to manage the various and sometimes unusual needs of our customers at these events demonstrates an unusual confluence of judgement, initiative and customer service which has generated confidence in both the client and our customers. I would certainly recommend Sharon and Athena without hesitation"
Robert Day, Western Europe Cluster Lead, Inflammation and Immunology Group at Pfizer Europe
"I have had the pleasure of working with Athena on a range of international cancer meetings. Athena are one of the best agencies that I have had the pleasure to work with. I have enjoyed the experience of working with them both as a speaker and a delegate. They have just the right level of touch and always execute every event to a high and professional standard and always with a large dose of good humour and customer service. I would have no hesitation in recommending Athena for any meeting that is tailored to the healthcare sector. They are a first class agency."
Professor Dame Lesley Fallowfield , Director of Psychosocial Oncology at University of Sussex UK
"Athena Meetings and Events enjoy a high reputation within the international healthcare community. This is thoroughly deserved. Attention to deal, excellent people skills and a clear understanding of healthcare professionals is exceptional. Clear briefings and excellent organisational and listening skills ensure that working with the Athena team is a consistently excellent experience. I would wholeheartedly recommend Athena."
Professor Jim Cassidy, USA , VP oncology discovery medicine BMS USA
"I was the scientific programme chair for the 2015 E-AHPBA international congress. Our PCO let us down and Athena stepped up to the mark with a 4 month lead to the congress. I was incredibly impressed with their passion, intelligence and impeccable understanding and management of an intricate, detailed and highly scientific programme and event. They supported the committee to deliver an excellent programme, supporting us with excellent logistic and delegate management. We will definitely work with Athena Meetings and Events for our 2017 congress in Germany. Great. Professional team!"
Professor Ajith Siriwardena , Consultant Hepatobiliary and General Surgery UK/Global
"I have had the pleasure of working with the team at Athena for over 15 years. They have always delivered a first class, professional and seamless service.
Working with Athena feels like you are working with an extension of your team and not a supplier. Their attention to detail, enthusiasm and passion for their business is unwavering.
I first worked with Athena when I was a Brand Manager at Menarini Pharmaceuticals. Since then Athena have gone on to support me and my teams at Pfizer and now at STEM.
Athena have supported me to deliver a variety of different events across the UK, Europe, Asia and the USA. The standard of service and meeting delivery cannot be surpassed. Athena deliver first class events that ensure that all stakeholders receive a positive and excellent experience."
David McNaughton , COO, STEM Marketing, Global
"I am pleased to be able to provide you with a reference for Sharon Poole and her agency Athena Meetings.
Over the last 10 years Sharon has organised numerous large scale events (from film launches to meetings with hundreds of delegates) for my businesses handling all elements of the logistics. Sharon and her team always execute brilliantly which is why I would never use another organisation.
Where Sharon’s team really excel is on the day – if the unexpected happens, and with live events they often do, then Sharon is unflappable and rallies her team, external suppliers and venue staff to fix them without you as the client even noticing. I always know that an Athena Meeting event will run perfectly. The bottom line is Sharon really cares. I recommend her and her agency unreservedly."
Neil Crump , Managing Director and owner Aurora - a GLOBAL Health PR partner
