Networking

Network like a pro – making the most of a conference

We’ve all been there, walking into a room full of people, knowing no one, searching for a familiar face, feeling vulnerable. We go to conferences and workshops to learn and to network, but to maximise the experience we have to find a way to move through that feeling of awkwardness […]

Overcoming Workaholism

Overcoming Workaholism

Do you have difficult switching off from work? I know I do. I’m blessed in that I love my work, it is an expression of who I am, not just what I do. If I won the lottery tomorrow I’d still do what I do (after a big holiday of […]

All-Ireland Business Summit April 2017

I’m delighted to be speaking at the All Ireland Business Summit in Croke Park on April 6th. (My Dad will be so proud, I’ll be ‘playing’ in Croke Park!) I attended this event last year and was blown away by the energy, the interactions, the exhibitions and the speakers so […]

Where is my Soulmate?

Valentine’s Day can be a tricky time of the year for people not in a relationship, or for those in the wrong relationship! Many people find it easier to achieve career success than to find the same levels of fulfilment when it comes to their personal lives. As one friend said […]

WIN2017 Speakers

Women’s Inspire Network Conference April 5th 2017 Cork

Last October, I attended the Women’s Inspire Network National event in Dublin. It was one of the most inspiring and informative conferences I’d attended in ages. A wonderful cross-section of speakers, many simply sharing their stories of how they built their businesses and the lessons they learned along the way. […]

Sunday night syndrome

Sunday Night Syndrome

It’s 7pm on a Sunday evening, the weekend is almost over. A wave of anxiety washes over you. Thoughts shift to Monday morning and the start of another week. You become snappy, impatient, even frustrated, because you know you should be relaxing and enjoying the rest of the weekend, not […]

Forget New Year Resolutions – Do this instead

I’m no fan of New Year resolutions, they are usually a knee jerk response to over- indulgence at Christmas. We can also endeavour to ‘resolve’ issues or challenges at any time of the year. However, as we move into 2017, we have an opportunity to connect with that sense of […]

year end review

My end of year ritual

Every year, in the run up to Christmas I purposefully make time to reflect on the year just gone. In the company of a few close friends, usually by an open fire, we look back over the last 12 months through a lens of gratitude and learning. Christmas can be […]

post-truth

In a post-truth world will the truth still set you free?

Oxford Dictionaries has named post-truth its word of the year. Following Brexit and the US elections they cited a 2000% increase in the use of the phrase. It’s a troubling reflection on society. As an Executive & Lifecoach I work with people every day supporting and challenging them to connect […]
