YOUNG BUSINESSWOMEN’S FORUM
Join us on Thursday, June 29 for an evening of insight, inspiration and lots of luxury as we hear about the highs and lows of business from three outstanding young entrepreneurs – Jane Swarbrigg (CEO, Ingot), Ella De Guzman (CEO, Siopaella) and Kathryn Thomas (broadcaster and founder, Pure Results bootcamps).
As we come up to our one-year anniversary of these game changer evenings, we love hearing how the candid discussions between IMAGE editor-in-chief Melanie Morris and our guest panels really shine a light on what it really means to be a successful young woman in business.
There’s plenty of opportunity to network with peers, and to be introduced to lots of like-minded women over champagne and canapés, with plenty of other treats, surprises and gifts along the way.
The perfect start to a productive summer.

CEO, Inglot Cosmetics
Jane Swarbrigg has spearheaded the opening of 15 Inglot stores nationwide and a successful online store www.inglot.ie. Jane, along with her brother Peter and mother Geraldine, brought Inglot Cosmetics – the exciting global brand to Irish stores in 2009 during the height of the recession. The brand has grown from strength to strength and Jane has rapidly become a huge online and social influencer, with her Instagram following now boasting over 26,000 and her Snapchat over 15,000. Jane is the face and personality of Inglot Cosmetics and has hosted Inglot Roadshows and various other exciting Inglot events and store openings around the country. Jane was also nominated for Beauty Entrepreneur of the year in the IMAGE Business of Beauty awards 2017. The sky is the limit for the team with many more exciting plans in the pipeline, including plans for more Inglot stores both in Ireland and the next venture they have set their sites on, bringing Inglot to the UK.
Ella de Guzman
Originally hailing from Vancouver, BC, Canada, Ella has been flipping bags, clothes and vintage furniture since 2001. Ten years later she turned her part-time gig/hobby into a proper business and founded Siopaella – meaning Ella’s Shop in Irish. When she moved here in 2010 she noticed a large gap in the market for consignment stores where people could buy, sell and trade their luxury handbags and clothing. To date, there are now four Siopaella stores as well as an online store and over 70,000 pieces have been recycled. She credits the success of Siopaella to a very loyal Siopaella community of customers, sellers and swappers, her super hardworking and creative team and of course her two resident hounds, the Siopaella mascots Louis and Raquel.
