Roses from all over Ireland and the globe who assemble in Tralee next month for the annual festival will be joined this year by business roses — female leaders from the world of business coming to the International Business Women’s Conference hosted by Enterprise Ireland.

The conference will take place on Monday 22 August in the Brandon Hotel, on the theme of ‘The Changing Face of Success’, focusing on strong female role models, leading by example and empowering women to fulfill their ambitions.

Senior female figures such as Eleanor McEvoy and Norah Casey from Dragons’ Den will share their experiences and insights on themes such as leadership, linking the digital age and entrepreneurship.

Sponsored by AIB, the Department of the Diaspora and media partner Tatler, delegates will also hear from the current Rose of Tralee, Elysha Brennan, as well as previous Roses including 2005 Rose of Tralee Dr Aoibhinn Ní Shúilleabháin.

Registration and full details of the conference are available here.

Enterprise Ireland CEO Julie Sinnamon said: “Enterprise Ireland recognises the huge contribution of Irish women in business. Last year we invested in a record number of female-led start-up companies. The International Business Women’s Conference aims to inform and inspire women to embrace business opportunities, leverage the Irish global network and reach their full potential.”

Jobs minister Mary Mitchell O’Connor commented: “This is a hugely important and inspiring event which brings together successful, inspirational female entrepreneurs.  It is great to see the range and diversity of the speakers that will be attending the conference. Promoting the achievements of women actively encourages others to aim high and in turn creates a valuable contribution to both the economy and society here in Ireland.”
