Top business moguls Joanne Sweeny Burke founder of Media Box and Grainne Kelly inventor of Bubblebum inspired young business entrepreneurs and business owners alike on how to get on the road to success.

“The business connections event was brilliant, it was great to see all the businesses come together, I reconnected with so many people and left with so many contacts. The talks were so insightful and answered so many questions I had. I stayed at the event till the bitter end and left on a real motivational high. She laughed.”


Speaking about the struggles of running a successful business Kerry said you have to work at it every day but she wouldn’t have it any other way.
