RESILIENCE: TURNING A SETBACK INTO A COMEBACK NETWORKING BREAKFAST
Women are amazing… we take so much on board, we multi-task, we say yes, we get the job done… often against all odds. Because even when things aren’t working in our favour, we get up, dress up and turn up. And it’s usually in these desperate moments, through quick thinking, instinct, life experience and (please goodness!) a little luck that magic happens.
Join us for a very special IMAGE Networking Breakfast where we celebrate the resilience of women and hear great, inspiring stories from women and men who’ve turned a setback into a comeback. We’ll also learn some priceless tips on how to save our own skins when circumstances conspire against us.
When: Thursday, April 20th at 7:30am
Where: The Marker Hotel, Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2
