We had a full house again at The Westbury Hotel yesterday evening for our first Young Businesswomen’s Forum of the Autumn season! Attendees enjoyed a beautiful Veuve Clicquot reception, amazing company, inspirational panelists and of course, plenty of divine canapés including a yummy chocolate popping candy canapé!
As everyone took their seats, they discovered an amazing luxury gift bag worth over €100 which included a Skin Nerd Cleanse Off Mitt, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Skin Protectant, stunning earrings from Rocks Jewellers, a delicious Green & Black’s chocolate treat and fab Image Skincare Rejuvenating Eye Pads, not forgetting our exclusive My Shining Armour notebook!
Editor-in-chief Melanie Morris opened the evening with a big warm welcome, introducing the amazing panel of women set to share their stories over the course of the evening. First up on the IMAGE YBF couch was Skin Nerd and all round hilarious lady, Jennifer Rock who talked about leaving her full-time job in February to employing 10 staff in just seven months with a two and a half years waiting list for her online skin consultation service! Next up to share their experiences was Heidi Higgins, from working with Irish Designer, Louise Kennedy to getting her first collection into ten stores in Ireland, to launching an exclusive online collection earlier this month. Heidi wore her Milan dress in red from the new online collection. Our final panelist of the evening was the incredible Sinead Cassidy, Sales & Marketing Manager of Galway Races. Sinead left us with food for thought, urging us to ‘Always be nice to people in business, you’ll never know when you will need them’.
One lucky attendee won a €300 gift card for Heidi Higgins store and everyone left The Westbury hotel on a high, feeling motivated and ready to take on the world!
