International business conference to harness the power of the Irish female diaspora

Pictured at the launch of the conference are (l-r): Caroline McEnery, HR Suite; Jimmy Deenihan, TD, Minister for the Diaspora; Maria Walsh, Current Rose of Tralee; Julie Sinnamon, CEO of Enterprise Ireland

This year, for the first time, the Rose of Tralee Festival will provide the backdrop for the introduction of a new and important dimension - a celebration and recognition of the business ambitions and achievements of modern women of the Irish diaspora.

The one-day conference, which is being organised by Enterprise Ireland, is themed, “Bloom for Ireland” as it will aim to harness the power of the Irish female diaspora, to contribute to continued economic growth and prosperity in Ireland.

The conference will be opened by Minister for Justice, Frances Fitzgerald TD, and will be hosted by Minister for the Diaspora, Jimmy Deenihan TD.

Conference delegates will hear from Rose of Tralee Maria Walsh as well as some previous Roses, many of whom have successful careers in business both in Ireland and around the world. 2005 Rose of Tralee, Dr. Aoibhinn Ní Shúilleabháin who is a Doctor of Mathematics Education, will share her worklife experience and talk about the need to encourage more women into the STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths).

Senior female figures from the Public Sector, the multinational sector, the media industry and the indigenous business sectors will share their insights on such themes as leadership with authenticity, achieving business scale and how diversity drives innovation.

The Conference represents an ideal opportunity to promote and showcase Ireland, and the Kingdom of Kerry in particular and to celebrate Irish business success. It represents a call on the Irish diaspora to use their influence to ‘open doors of opportunity’ for the Irish in their country of residence.
