Yesterday evening we had a full house at our second IMAGE Mentoring Workshop of the year at The 5 Star Merrion Hotel. As Guests arrived they were greeted with a glass of Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Rosé 2008 and enjoyed paired canepés specially designed by The Merrion’s Executive Chef, Ed Cooney.
Editor-in-chief, Melanie Morris welcomed everyone and introduced Moët & Chandon Brand Ambassador, Julie Dupouy to tell us more about the unique qualities of the Grand Vintage Rosé 2008. With Mothers Day fast approaching everyone was encouraged to share their Moët Moment on Facebook and to toast to their lovely mum’s. As a result, one lucky winner on the night won a bottle of Moët & Chandon Impérial and will have the chance to have it personalised with a message or picture for their Mum.
Our mentor for the evening was Graeme Slattery, managing director of PR powerhouse, notorious PSG. Graeme gave us a masterclass in public relations in the digital age and how we can use the platforms to amplify a brand message. Graeme spoke about the importance of digital and how it can not only be cost effective but can have a global reach for active audiences.
To top the night off we had some beautiful luxury gifts for everyone including a limited edition ‘Daisy Blush’ perfume from Marc Jacobs Fragrances and organic chocolate from Green & Blacks. We also had a very special prize up for grabs on the night and one very happy guest went home with an overnight stay and dinner for two at The Portmarnock Hotel & Golf Links. The prize also included a half day Heaven spa package with lunch in the Seaview restaurant.
