We had a full house last night at The 5 Star Merrion Hotel for our first Mentoring Workshop of the year. We were joined by mentor Maryrose Lyons, founder of Brightspark Consulting and the Brightspark Academy who gave us a ‘Social Media Masterclass’.

Attendees were welcomed with a glass of Ros? Imp?rial Mo?t & Chandon and enjoyed delicious paired canap’s’specifically designed by the Merrion’s Executive Chef, Ed Cooney. Editor-in-chief, Melanie Morris kicked off proceedings who spoke on behalf of Mo?t & Chandon and shared some?expert tips on how to enjoy Mo?t & Chandon this valentines day. Mo?t & Chandon encouraged all our guests to unleash their social media savviness by asking their partner on twitter to share a #Mo?tMoment & valentines with them. One lucky guest got the quickest response back and won a romantic dinner for two at Pichet restaurant plus a bottle of Ros? Imp?rial Mo?t & Chandon on ice.

This January we are all about health and wellbeing and as everyone took their seats they discovered Super Seeds from Good4U, Pukka Herbs Cleanse Tea and body cream from Voya.?Maryrose began her presentation by talking about what’s going to be the 7 biggest social media trends of 2017. Maryrose spoke about how social media is constantly?expanding and innovating new ways?to reach target audiences with Facebook dominating out in front. After a thoroughly informative evening, three very lucky attendees went home with a Brightspark SAD Lumie light
