Network Ireland Limerick is a forum for women in business, the professions and the arts.
Our March event on Thursday, 22nd March, is being run in association with AIB, 106 O'Connell Street, Limerick, and is open to both members and non-members.
AIB’s Head of Business Banking, Catherine Moroney, and local author, Roisin Meaney, are the keynote speakers on the night.
Both speakers will talk to the theme ‘Pay It Forward'. Catherine Moroney, Head of Business Banking, AIB, will explain why Ireland as a country needs to work together to ensure we are prepared for post Brexit and continued prosperity. She will also call on women in business to collaborate for strong economic and societal outcomes.
Limerick author Roisin Meaney, who is an advocate for random acts of kindness, will share her success story to date and encourage women to be kinder to each other as they support each other to achieve things they could not do alone.
This event is free and open to women (members and non-members). Places are limited, so early booking is advised.
Wine and Canapés will be served on arrival. Thank you to AIB, 106 O'Connell Street, Limerick, for their valued sponsorship.
