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 that sits on the edge of our comfort zones.  » Read more about: Network like a pro – making the most of a conference  »

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 course!) But I struggle to switch off.  » Read more about: Overcoming Workaholism  »

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 I’m honoured to be contributing this year.  » Read more about: All-Ireland Business Summit April 2017  »

Enhance your Health – 5 Nutritional Tips

We all want to be healthy, but what exactly is health? WHO (World Health Organisation) defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”. I’ll take that! With Spring in the air, there’s no better time to put your health higher on your agenda.  » Read more about: Enhance your Health – 5 Nutritional Tips  »

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 to me recently –  » Read more about: Where is my Soulmate?  »

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. What I found particularly inspiring was how so many of the speakers,  » Read more about: Women’s Inspire Network Conference April 5th 2017 Cork  »

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 worrying about work.  » Read more about: Sunday Night Syndrome  »

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 possibility and potential for the year ahead.  » Read more about: Forget New Year Resolutions – Do this instead  »

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 with and to unleash their truth.  » Read more about: In a post-truth world will the truth still set you free?  »

In recent weeks, several people have mentioned to me that they are contemplating getting their own website or up-dating their existing site. Having recently relaunched my own website, here are six insights that guided me through the process. The end result, a new website I’m certainly proud of.
