Launch of Network Ireland West Cork branch.
On Monday 5th March 2018 at 6.00pm in The Ludgate Hub, Skibbereen, an open evening will be held for the establishment of the West Cork branch of Network Ireland. After a huge amount of interest, hard work and encouragement from so many West Cork business women, it has been decided to open a branch in West Cork. And what better way than with one of West Cork’s leading ladies Dee Forbes, Director General of RTE and Adrienne Harrington, CEO of the Ludgate Hub
Network Ireland is a progressive, dynamic organisation supporting the professional and personal development of women. Throughout the 11 nationwide branches of Network Ireland, membership is made up of a very diverse group of women, from budding entrepreneurs, SME owners, professionals and leaders in indigenous and multinational organisations to non-profits, charities, arts and the public sector. As a voluntary organisation, Network Ireland has many aims and objectives to promote women in business including providing a forum where professional women can exchange ideas, and increase business contacts, encouraging women to achieve more satisfying careers and to market
the skills and expertise of Network members. These are achieved through their monthly events, national conferences, new Mentorship Programme and through their Awards Programme.
Anyone who is interested in discovering what Network Ireland has to offer is encouraged to come along to this free event which is being kindly sponsored by Spearline. On the night, guests will be introduced to Network Ireland and how the organisation can support, inspire and champion you and your business or career through the new West Cork Branch.
The event will also feature Dee Forbes, Director General of RTE, and the first woman to hold the role. Dee has an incredible CV and is a huge supporter of all things West Cork. Dee will share insights into her career to date, while also speaking of how support from women has helped her career. Speaking ahead of the event, Dee stated; “Having grown up in West Cork, I am delighted to have been invited to speak at this inaugural meeting of Network West Cork. I am very familiar with how the Network operates and have seen at first hand the practical supports that it provides to its members. I have no doubt that this new branch will be a great addition to women working in West Cork”
Roseann Heavey, President of Network Ireland stated; “I am thrilled to see the establishment of the West Cork branch of Network Ireland. It is great to see such interest from business women in West Cork and to see the organisation growing. Network Ireland is a fantastic support structure for all women in business across Ireland and with the addition of the West Cork branch, it will certainly add to this. Each network offers support, mentoring and confidence building for women, in particular those starting in business or returning to the workplace. I hope that the ladies of West Cork will come along on 5 March and see for themselves how they can benefit from the organisation both professionally and personally.’
