Social Pics: ‘Making It Happen’ Networking Breakfast

The  bank holiday weekend kicked off with a morning of turbo-charged motivation, direction, and inspiration. Our penultimate Networking Breakfast of the year, ‘Making It Happen’, took place this morning and was a briliantly animated and ultra-personal affair.

Editor- in-chief Melanie Morris introduced our three incredible speakers Kay Connolly, Debbie O’Donnell and Natasha Fennell who gave great insight on what it takes to make it happen, in all aspects of life.

Our first speaker to take to the podium was Kay Connolly, chief operating officer of St. Vincent’s University Hospital who gave an overview of her career, spanning over 32 years. Next up, was the TV3 executive producer,  Debbie O’Donnell who gave key tips for TV, how to pitch your brand and reminding us that we all have great ideas but how you craft it, is what matters. And finally, we had communications expert Natasha Fennell talking us through political intelligence in work and how to use it to your advantage at work.

The event ended on a high as six lucky attendees received a €50 gift card from Marks & Spencer during the Q & A session. Our social media prize of an overnight stay with dinner for two at The Royal Killarney Hotel, courtesy of Irelands Bluebook plus the loan of a Mazda CX-5 for the trip went to the best tweet of the morning using #ImageNB. There were luxury seat gifts for everyone that included a blow-dry voucher from PREEN, a Trilogy skincare gift set and a delicious bar of Green & Black’s chocolate plus treats from No7!
