Last Friday, we held our IMAGE Networking Breakfast at the Marker Hotel in Dublin. It was a fantastic morning with over 240 attendees eager to soak up the wisdom of our speakers. We had Julie Strang, Country Manager of Benefit Cosmetics Ireland; Clodagh McKenna, Chef, Food Writer & TV Presenter; as well as Breege O? Donoghue, Company Director of Penneys/Primark.

We began with a few opening words from our Editor-In-Chief, Melanie Morris; before hearing an animated & fun filled speech from Julie Strang. Clodagh McKenna then spoke about her career journey and how her parents inspired her to never listen to her ?haters.’ Finally, the wonderful Breege provided endless inspiration in career story. Perhaps one of the most astonishing figures that she shared was that her fabulous suit was only €42 from the Primark Autumn collection (keep your eyes peeled this August!)

Some lucky attendees found a pair tickets to the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby under their seats. While another lucky winner won a Boots Soltan Hamper to get them all holiday ready! Our Twitter winners, who used the hashtag #imagenb, won an overnight stay in Rosleague House in Connemara, courtesy of Ireland’s Blue Book, and a huge Benefit hamper (full of beauty booty) was also up for grabs.

Not only that, but everyone went away with perhaps our best gift bag yet, which included not one, not two but three Benefit products (!!!), chocolates from Lily O’Brien’s, Revive Active, Essie nail polishes & a €20 Penneys voucher!

We wrapped up the morning at 10am feeling ready to take control of our working lives and ready to reach for the stars in our careers.
