Terry Prone heads up LEO’s National Women’s Enterprise Day event

Celebrate National Women’s Enterprise Day with Waterford Local Enterprise Office in the beautiful surroundings of Faithlegg House Hotel on October 12th for an afternoon of learning and networking.

This year we are delighted to have Irene Queally of Pip and Pear as our ambassador for our event ‘Open Doors to New Markets’ which will be hosted by broadcaster Karen Tomkins and features an interactive workshop ‘Speak with Impact’ with voice coach and speech language therapist Linda Coyle. During the session you will explore what gets in our way of speaking with confidence, look at how important listening is to connecting, and why women are particularly strong at this, along with learning simple tools to help you to come across as the competent person you are.

There will also be a panel discussion featuring Irene Queally, Pip and Pear; Grainne Walsh, Metalman Brewing; Sandra Whelan, Immersive VR Education; Deirdre Meany and Karen Cottier, Wild Oat Soaps; Yvonne Crotty, Willow & Wild and Beth Ann Smith, Lismore Food Company.
