Talks followed by networking over wine and finger food

We're nearing the end of the year and I know that our members have been working hard all year, getting back to 'in-person' business and, in many cases, building on the great work carried out during lockdown on websites, social media, new product/service development, etc  It is time to celebrate! The night will start with a mulled wine and mince pie reception and the event will kick off with the presentation of the Annual Awards (Female Entrepreneur of the Year and Rising Star) where we recognise the achievements of our members over 2022.

This will be followed by a talk by Sharon Keegan, the inspirational founder of Peachylean, one of Ireland's fast growth stars who will talk about her story so far and will share tips with other women in business.

The talk will be followed by networking over finger food and wine.

Speaker Profile:

Sharon Keegan is founder of Peachylean, Athleisure, a company instilling confidence and self-esteem in women. 

She started the company in 2018 after she failed to find suitable supportive active wear after the birth of her first son Liam. 

Since then, the Dublin woman has grown the company into an award winning female led scale up. 

Despite huge personal and professional challenges, including the tragic death of her brother in March 2020 she recently appeared on BBC Dragon's Den, slaying three dragons and £100K in investment.

Sharon has always had a nose for business and an appetite for innovation. Suffering from postnatal depression on her first son Liam she ventured back to do her masters in Innovation at UCD, exploring several avenues of product market fit.

 She finally settled on Peachylean after testing an early version of what would become her famous supportive spandex and nylon leggings. 

Previous to her pregnancy Sharon built and ran the Irish arm of UK brand Pieminister, growing the business exponentially over five years.
