Strategies for Success: The real secrets to brilliant business and career building
04th Oct 2022
Join our next Business Club Live networking event on October 24, where you will learn key business strategies from some of Ireland's most successful businesswomen.
While we’d all love to believe opportunity knocks, the reality is, there’s no such thing as overnight success, and the real magic in entrepreneurship always takes place beyond the business plan.
So, what are the key strategies that leading Irish businesswomen have found to be the most successful? What can we learn from our peers and how can we incorporate them into our own ventures?
On Monday evening, October 24, we’ll be asking some of Ireland’s most successful businesswomen the key questions in order to finish 2022 strong and help us lay some firm foundations for the new year. Our panel will feature fashion and beauty entrepreneur Pippa O’Connor, Patricia Roberts, founder of No.1 Pery Square Hotel & Spa, Limerick’s most beautiful boutique hotel, and Marie Moynihan, senior vice president, global human resources services, Dell Technologies.
Join IMAGE contributing editor Melanie Morris at The Westbury Hotel for an evening of networking, cocktails, learning and a little luxury, as we hear three women’s different stories, and how they plan for progress. Whether you’re part of a big team, working up the career ladder, a start-up entrepreneur or in the professional sector, we’ll have plenty of insights to share.
