A Collective View: Female Entrepreneurs

We are delighted to welcome WIN members and their guests for an evening of networking and inspiration from a panel of Irish female entrepreneurs.

The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A; along with networking, wine and canapés during the evening.

Our distinguished panel will be chaired by Marina Donohoe of Enterprise Ireland; featuring guests Darina Allen, Founder of Ballymaloe Cookery School, Mary McKenna, leading STEM Entrepreneur and Angel Investor and Jayne Ronayne CEO and Co-Founder behind Talivest.

A tireless ambassador for Irish food both at home and abroad, she also presented nine series of her cookery programme, *Simply Delicious*, on television in Ireland. Darina also helped launch the Ballymaloe Literary Festival of Food and Wine in 2013, which plays host to a stellar line up of chefs and writers.

  • 🎭Why Shouldn’t I Go? Written and performed by Janet Behan, Directed by Jessica Higgs. 🎟November 14 – 16, London Irish Centre, Tickets £11.37

In the play three very different women, each of whom grew up in Ireland in the sixties, tell their stories — at some points very funny, at others, heartbreaking. 
Funny and shocking by turns, “Why Shouldn’t I Go?” tells the stories of three very different Irishwomen with one thing in common – religion and the impact it has had on their lives. 
In Realtine our heroine has joined a creative writing class but a long-buried secret has so far prevented her from writing a word. Today her story comes pouring out —'So one day a nun comes to the school. A beautiful creature from the Poor Clare. Not many women can look beautiful in a nun's habit.' Reclusive Noreen rails against her daughter, husband and neighbours for ruining her life; in reality her life was ruined years before, when she was little more than a child —'Come near me again with that thing and I’ll chop it off for you! You won’t be so big when I’ve Cinished with you, I’m telling you boy! I’ll chop it off for you, CHOP, CHOP, CHOP!' Susan, wife of the town’s highly respected pastor, realises she’s pregnant. The townsfolk offer hearty congratulations to their beloved pastor but are they misplaced? —‘On our wedding night, after the driest of dry dos, I lay, eyes shut, in the bridal suite of the Causeway Hotel, waiting for the Cireworks to commence . . . ‘

Not many Monday mornings start like this, but what a pleasure to interview the fabulous Oriole Cullen, curator of Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams at the Women’s Irish Network breakfast bright and early today. #oriolecullen @winwomenuk #irishinlondon
  • ✨Funny, articulate and extremely down to earth - it was a pleasure to hear Oriole Cullen’s journey to become the curator of Dior’s Designer of Dreams exhibition at @V_and_A and learn about her view of the art & design world today.
“The world is in tumultuous times. 
The title of the show [Designer of Dreams] represented escapism, because Dior became a representative of a new world after the hardships of war. His story is a very positive one.” Oriole Cullen at our #BusinessBreakfast.
A special thank you to all the new people who joined our event today, and the renowned Orla Kiely who is a great supporter and @marieclairetrish who interviews Oriole- it was a full house of 70 at @CorriganMayfair and it was a pleasure to meet you all!
