We had a fantastic Women Who Mean Business webinar on Thursday 11 March 2021, in honour of International Women's Day 2021 – "Choose to Challenge".

We are so grateful and lucky that we had such a fantastic line up of knowledgeable speakers at this event. 

  • Cecilia Ronan, CEO Citibank Europe Plc and Citi Country Officer Ireland

  • Louise Phelan, CEO - Phelan Energy Group

  • Margot Slattery, Global Diversity and Inclusion Officer – Sodexo

With MC - Andrew Lynch - CEO - Mason Alexander.

We learned so much within this hour so we would highly recommend watching the recording of this event, as you will get so much valuable information and insights from our speakers.

A few key takeaways from our event –
  • "The future of work for women needs to be re-defined, challenged and supported" – Margot Slattery, Sodexo

  • "You need diversity of thought around your leadership table" – Louise Phelan, Phelan Energy Group.

  • "Your personal brand is yours to own" – Louise Phelan. Put yourself out there, ask questions and be involved. But ask for help and support when you need it.

  • "Stay true to who you are. Remember where you came from. Never stop learning. And put your voice in the room – be heard!" – Louise Phelan, Phelan Energy Group

  • "Dream big and aspire to make change" – Margot Slattery, Sodexo

  • “Identify opportunities, don’t wait to be asked. And when you do make your contribution –make sure it’s of a high quality” – Cecilia Ronan, Citi

  • “A big focus of companies should be building out a more diverse talent pool of candidates so we can get more than the 30% of females in more senior roles” – Cecilia Ronan, Citi

  • “Don’t take things too seriously – you aren’t saving the world… unless your Louise Phelan!” – Cecilia Ronan, Citi​
