IMAGE Networking Breakfast returned to the chic Marker Hotel this morning for one last time before the summer is out. Guests arrived bright and early, enjoying plenty of networking over a beautiful breakfast spread of delicious pastries and plenty of coffee!

As attendees took their seats they discovered an amazing luxury gift bag waiting for them including, a blow dry voucher from Zeba Hairdressing, an amazing Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Oil and an incredible Redken No Blow Dry cream.

Editor-in-chief, Melanie Morris opened the morning with a big warm welcome and introduction of our amazing speakers. Melanie was joined on stage by former CNN Correspondent and Anchor, Gina London, Managing Director of Irish Distillers, Louise Ryan and The Chairman of The Communications Clinic, Terry Prone. The theme of the morning was work/life balance, asking the big question; Is it really possible to have it all?

First up to take centre stage was Gina London. Gina spoke about her amazing journey, urging us to push aside doubt and fear, yet reminding us that it’s always ok to ask for help. Next up to take to the podium was Louise Ryan. Louise spoke beautifully about the importance of women helping women through continued support and flexibility. ?Our final speaker of the morning was Terry Prone. Terry kept everyone giggling while teaching us some valuable lessons. Terry flipped the idea of work/life balance on it’s head, challenging us to see what we can do to help those around us, instead of focussing only on ourselves.

As well as the fabulous gift bags, a few very lucky attendees left with some amazing prizes. Best Tweet of the morning won an overnight stay with dinner for two at Viewmount House, Co Longford courtesy of Irelands Bluebook, AND a loan of a Mazda MX-5 RF for the trip, courtesy of Mazda Ireland. One very happy attendee left with a table for two at The Marker Hotel’s exclusive Bollinger Dinner on Wednesday, July 19, and three lucky ladies walked away with €100 Marks & Spencer gift cards! We also had some amazing treats for everyone from No7, and one lucky winner went home with a gorgeous No7 hamper.

Everyone left The Marker feeling’motivated and inspired, geared up to have an extremely productive summer!
