What an interesting and inspirational evening, last night at the Menlo Park Hotel. Besides a great group of women networking, we had two very good speakers in Josephine O' Halloran and Mary Rodgers. Thank you to both ladies, we really enjoyed your presentations, both were informative and engaging.
Josephine's talk about counselling and what it entails was thought provoking. Her explanation of the difference between counselling and psychotherapy was professional but straightforward. Her segment on bullying in the workplace was well received.
Mary Rodgers gave an informative and humourous talk on her professional life to date, leaving Galway and heading for the Big Apple to work for Credit Suisse. Then making the big leap back to Galway to set up her own business - Stateside Solutions - that helps Irish companies enter the US market.
Mary shared with us, the amount of goodwill there is in the US for Irish companies entering the American market. Really good to know there are opportunities for Irish companies wishing to enter the US market.
Thanks again Josephine & Mary and thanks also to our minute at the mike speakers Carrie from Beautiful You Ireland and Sharon from Enable Ireland as well as our soapbox speaker - Sara from QuickTec IT Solutions. Congratulations to Hanna Walter on winning our prize - free membership for a year.
We would like to thank our current members who attended the meeting. A special thanks goes to new members who attended, we hope you were inspired and will be joining our network.
Finally, a big thank you to Menlo Park Hotel for hosting our event.
Here are some photos from the meeting.
