Editor-in-chief, Melanie Morris kicked off proceedings with a big warm welcome, followed by the introduction of our inspiring panel of speakers; Country President of Sodexo Ireland, Margot Slatter, Founder of Body&Soul, Avril Stanley and Author and Managing Director of Gavin Duffy Associates, Orlaith Carmody. First up to take to the podium was Margot Slattery who spoke to us honestly and candidly about the importance of being yourself without fear of standing out. Next up was Avril Stanley, Avril chatted to us about her leadership style, following her heart and checking in with her head. Lastly, we heard from Orlaith Carmody who taught us that as women, the four C’s should not hold us back – confidence, culture, childcare and cash! She also encouraged us to always strive for happiness!
