Join our next networking event: ‘The Entrepreneurial Mindset’: The Power of Knowledge

Don’t miss our next IMAGE Business Club event, where business leaders will share their success stories and the valuable learnings they gleaned along the way.

Bravery? Market insights? Empathy? Strategy? What makes a good businesswoman a brilliant one?

Join us for the next IMAGE Business Club Live event, at the Westbury Hotel on Thursday, June 29 when we’ll dive deep into the key assets and skill sets that successful business founders and experts rely on for continual outstanding results.

On the evening, IMAGE contributing editor Melanie Morris will chat with Sharon Keegan, founder and CEO of Peachy Lean athletic wear, and Eva Pau, commercial director of her family business Asia Market (and also our 2022 IMAGE Businesswoman of the Year) about their stories of success, along with some of the challenges they’ve encountered, and how they overcame them.

We will also hear from Ruth McNamee, director of finance transformation, R&C sector, at PwC about some of the strategies we should all be considering in our business model, and learning valuable insights from the leading organisations which may shape our opinions as well as our plans.

So often, the biggest challenges we face in business are the ones we aren’t aware of, so this will be an evening that offers an outstandingly candid view of business: the sort of information that’s gathered through hard-earned experience.

It’s an event not to be missed, offering plenty of insight, along with a chance to network and meet the speakers. Attendees will enjoy Malfy & Fever-Tree cocktails, delicious canapés, a gorgeous gift bag and the chance of winning a fabulous prize.

Meet the Speakers

Sharon Keegan, Founder & CEO, Peachy Lean

Sharon Keegan is an award-winning entrepreneur with over 20 years of experience in sales, marketing and brand management for FMCG and Digital brands such as St Tropez tanning, Australian body care, Eyssential beauty and Pieminister.co.uk. Sharon founded her first business in 1999, importing spray tanning solutions from the US. She then partnered with the UK company Pieminister to launch and run the Irish operations of a well-loved food company here in Ireland, bringing that business to one million euro in turnover with 16 staff. 

 At the age of 33, Sharon became a new mam and struggled with postnatal depression. Being no stranger to throwing herself into adversity, Sharon decided to go back and study innovation and entrepreneurship in University College Dublin. This helped her to not only overcome her anxiety and postnatal depression, but also compelled her to help other women who were going through similar experiences. She went on to start Peachylean in 2018 with a mission to help women to silence their inner critic, to stop holding themselves back and discover their true potential in life, and to ultimately love them ‘Self.’

Eva Pau, Commercial Director, Asia Market

Eva Pau quite literally grew up in the Asia Market store on Drury Street, Dublin, which is owned by her parents and celebrated its 40th-anniversary last year. When she was old enough, she was encouraged by them to go off and study and plan for her own future. Eva subsequently gained an MA in ICT at Trinity College Dublin and an MSc in IT Management & Organisational Change at Lancaster University in the UK.

Having completed her studies, Eva moved to Hong Kong, where she worked for financial institutions for many years before returning home to Ireland and helping her parents grow the family business. Over the years, as the commercial director, Eva has played a pivotal role in establishing the Asia Market brand, modernising the shopping experience for customers, opening a second location, and developing the logistics and wholesale supply chain – delivering to restaurants and takeaways nationwide.

Asia Market is now Ireland’s largest Asian food importer, distributor and retailer, employing over 160 multinational employees. In addition to her day job, Eva is also currently the Vice Chairman of the Chinese Society of Ireland, a member of the Advisory Council of the Trinity Centre for Asian Studies (TCAS) and a Board Member of Dublin Town. 

Ruth McNamee, Director of Finance Transformation, R&C Sector, PwC

 

Ruth joined PwC’s Management Consulting Team 10 years ago. She has led programmes across Europe, the Middle East and the United States for clients of varying sizes predominantly in the retail and consumer goods industry. Ruth has deep experience supporting clients with their business transformation programmes.
