This morning we returned to The Marker Hotel for our first Networking Breakfast of the autumn series, ‘The Big Question – Decision-making in Business’. We had a full house as everyone gathered in the luxurious hotel lobby networking with peers and enjoying a delicious spread of fresh fruit, croissants, cronuts and of course, plenty of hot coffee.

The morning was kicked off with a big warm welcome from IMAGE editor-in-chief Melanie Morris who introduced our two amazing guest speakers for the morning, Mary Ann O’Brien and Lucy Gaffney. The theme of the morning was decision-making in business, exploring how we tackle hundreds?of decisions both major and minor every day. First up we heard from Mary Ann O’Brien, founder of Lily O’Brien’s Chocolate who reminded us that often a bad decision is better than no decision at all. Next up was the incredible Lucy Gaffney, Chairperson of Communicorp who advised us to make our decisions based on our core values and empathy.

The event ended on a high with some amazing gifts and prizes. Everyone received a gorgeous Max Benjamin Candle and delicious chocolate treat from Lily O’Brien’s in their gift bag. There were also some amazing treats from Boots No7! One very lucky attendee won an overnight stay?with’dinner for two people in the beautiful No. 1 Pery Square Co. Limerick courtesy of Irelands Blue Book plus the loan of a sleek Mazda MX-5 courtesy of Mazda Ireland for the best Tweet on the morning.
