WOMEN INSPIRED AT ANNUAL WOMEN IN BUSINESS NI CONFERENCE
Conference speakers Orla Corr OBE, of the McAvoy Group, named Outstanding Business Woman of the Year at the Women In Business NI Awards 2011, Nicola Bryne, CEO and founder of 11890 and Jo Haigh, Partner at FDS Corporate Finance Services, inspired more than 150 businesswomen at the Annual Women in Business NI Conference, which was supported by Invest Northern Ireland.
Roseann Kelly, Chief Executive of Women in Business NI, said: “This conference has grown to become one of the leading dates in any businesswoman’s diary. Our first conference was in 2009 and to see how the event has evolved is truly inspirational for me.
“More than 150 women were here today to listen to our speakers, interact at our seminar sessions but most importantly to network with each other and the enthusiasm in the room was palpable.”
Ian Murphy, Director of the Growth and Scaling Division with Invest Northern said: “Ambitious businesses need ambitious leaders if they are to grow. They need to invest in their staff, developing strong, skilled teams to cope with the challenges that growth brings. Conferences like this show that it is possible to grow a business, even in tough economic times. Invest NI can help businesses achieve growth with support across core areas such as skills development, finding new markets and developing innovation and creativity.”
