Event: A Woman’s World?

A Woman’s World??The challenges and rewards facing women in business.

“There is a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.” So said Madeleine Albright. But being a female in business involves a lot more than help; we also need focus, aptitude, ability, time management, qualifications and the impossible art of (at least) bilocation.

Things have moved so far forward in recent times, but is society still out of kilter with our professional aspirations? Are we doomed before we start?

Join IMAGE editor-in-chief Melanie Morris for a morning of inspiration as we learn how some of Ireland’s most established businesswomen achieved their professional goals. Also, learn how to sharpen your own career path, for greater happiness and success.

Where The Marker Hotel, Grand Canal Dock

When 7.30am Friday, May 22
