Making It Happen
Productivity in Business
The business hamster wheel never slows down, so how can we consistently stay on top of our ‘to do’ lists. With teams to brief, presentations to write, ideas to generate and KPI’s to meet, it’s a constant battle to stay productive, stay motivated and stay sane!
October’s IMAGE Networking Breakfast focusses on women who make extraordinary things happen on a daily basis. As chief officer of St Vincent’s University Hospital, Kay Connolly oversees an abundance of teams and departments to ensure best practice is delivered as routine. TV3’s Debbie O’Donnell has worked in the UK and Ireland with the most challenging situations and deadlines in producing award-winning television programmes; and Stillwater Communications Natasha Fennell works with corporates, entrepreneurs and global thought leaders in helping them perform to their highest potential.
Join us for a morning when we learn how the experts in productivity get stuff done. Get inspired, reboot your mojo and enjoy plenty of treats, gifts and some quality networking too.
WHEN Friday, October 27
from 7.30am – 10am
WHERE The Marker Hotel,
