It was lovely to attend the third annual Waterford Chamber Women In Business Lunch on Thursday 3rd December 2015 in Athenaeum House Hotel.
Storm Desmond had arrived with strong winds, heavy rain and flash flooding . But that didn’t stop 95 local business women making their way to this great event. On arrival we received a glass of mulled wine lots of women networking , the noise level was fairly high. Next we were treated to a beautiful meal before the guest speaker Cpl Resoures CEO Anne Heraty spoke about how she was passionate about the advancement of women in business and how everyone needs a little help and encouragement along the way. Also Ms Heraty spoke of how it is important to share our experience ,particularly with younger . Something i truly agree with.
Ms Heraty gave a very open and honest insight into her journey in business. There was a great was energy in the room. It was great to make new connections and also catch up with old friends . I always enjoy theses event’s and came away feeling inspired and motivated.
Another great event thank you Waterford Chamber
This week Wigworld were delighted to be exhibiting in Dungarvan at the third ‘Spark a Thought’ creative workshop as part of the Waterford area Partnership (WAP) initiative , to get people thinking about starting their own business, ways to turn a hobby or a passion into a self-employment opportunity.
WAP believes that the best way of understanding what it means to embark on the path of self-employment is to hear it from someone who has made that journey.
The event took part in the Park Hotel in Dungarvan with over 13 different types of business owners exhibiting on the day . There was quite a diverse range of business from music producer, hawkeye falconry, crafts, caking makers, pet training and lots more. We were delighted to take part and talk about our business and how it came to fruition and showcase what we do.
