The Fingal Enterprising Women Network is going from strength-to-strength and the buzz at last week’s event and fantastic feedback bears testament to this. WhiteLight Consulting Director Karen Devine is proud to be the Network Manager.
The Cloud Suite at the Carlton Hotel Dublin Airport resonated with the sound of women in business and enterprise meeting new people and reconnecting with existing contacts. Stories were exchanged, advice was asked and wisdom was shared. It was wonderful to see new members easing into the network and feeling so welcome.
Guest speaker and food entrepreneur Isolde Johnson held the audience in the palm of her hand as she told The Cool Bean Company story. She talked about the creativity, energy and passion that she and Sarah injected into the foundation of their business.
She explained how they went about creating a brand when they had precious few cash resources. They spent money in the early stages with a professional branding agency who helped to craft their message, values and ethos into their brand but after that it was all legwork and ingenuity.
Isolde gripped the audience with her product and her personality. There was spontaneous applause as she revealed that their fresh, natural product is now stocked in 365 retail outlets across Ireland and the UK. She delighted in taking questions from the floor and spent nearly an hour talking to network members one to one after the event.
