We had a full house at The Westbury Hotel on Tuesday evening for our penultimate Young Businesswomen’s Forum of the Autumn season! Attendees enjoyed a beautiful Veuve Clicquot reception, wonderful company, inspirational panelists and of course, plenty of divine canapé’s!

As everyone arrived into the Grafton Suite, they discovered an amazing luxury gift bag with some beautiful gifts, including a fabulous blow-dry voucher from Di Milo, a €20 voucher for Penny’s, divine shampoo and conditioner from Human + Kind, delicious baking mixes from Boutique Bake and a gorgeous nail polish from Sally Hansen. Along with all of these wonderful seat gifts, everyone got a YBF exclusive My Shining Armour notebook!

Editor-in-chief Melanie Morris opened the evening with a massive welcome to our audience and introduced the incredible panel of ladies who were set to share their stories over the course of the evening. Our first panelist to take a seat on the IMAGE YBF couch was Sonia Deasy, founder of Pestle & Mortar, who spoke about how the idea of Pestle & Mortar came about and the whirlwind of a journey that has happened since it’s establishment in 2014. Second to join the couch was Catherine Buggy, owner and founder of Boutique Bake, who spoke about leaving her HR job to pursue her passion for baking and creating Boutique Bake in her own kitchen. Last panelist to join the couch was Emma Manley, owner of MANLEY fashion label, who spoke to us about setting up an Irish fashion label and the challenges about getting on to the global fashion scene.

Everyone left The Westbury hotel having ignited a spark to feel inspired, motivated and ready to take on the world! Five lucky attendees left the event with a gorgeous goodie bag from Pestle & Mortar for Q & A spot prizes, and the best Tweet of the evening got an incredible €300 gift voucher for The Manley Fashion Label!
