There was a full house at The Conrad Hotel for our inaugural Young Businesswomen’s Forum.
Our attendees enjoyed canapes and drinks on arrival, and everyone was gifted with a girly notebook & tote bag from Penneys, and a cocktail voucher for Lemuel’s at The Conrad Hotel. Inside everyone’s tote bag there were gorgeous treats from Cocoa Brown, Sally Hansen, Bourjous, and Cadburys Dairy Milk plus gift cards from Peter Marks and Penneys.
The evening began with a few opening words from our Editor-In-Chief Melanie Morris, who welcomed our amazing panel of businesswomen; Marissa Carter, CEO & founder, Cocoa Brown, Elva Carri – Co-founder of GirlCrew, and Anne Morgan who is Managing Director at Distinct Model Management.
First up in the hot seat was Marissa Carter who shared the Cocoa Brown story with us, how Kylie Jenner became an avid fan and shared anecdotes that had everyone on the edge of their seats laughing. Elva Carri was next to join the ladies up on stage to discuss how she came up with the idea of the hugely successful female social community; GirlCrew. Anne Morgan, from Distinct Model Management, was last up to tell her story and explained that she wanted to create an agency that was different from the rest.
After a fantastic night full of laughter and chats, three lucky attendees won brunch for two and a cocktail for The Cellar Bar in Fallon & Byrne. Our Twitter winner went away with a fabulous €250 gift voucher for Penneys.
