As part of 'Ireland's Best Young Entrepreneur' competition (IBYE), myself and 23 other finalists had the opportunity to meet with Taoiseach Enda Kenny, Tanaiste Joan Burton and Richard Bruton (Minister for Jobs, Entreprise and Innovation) last week in the government buildings to tell them all about our businesses.
It was also a great opportunity to meet the other finalists - A group of amazing people, all of whom have accomplished so much in such a short period of time!
It was an exciting morning, soon followed by a Networking discussion/Q & A with Paddy Flynn (Google), Gary Leyden (NDRC) and Niamh Bushnell (Dublin Start Up Commissioner) in Google HQ. I learned so much in such a short space of time. These people are so informative, not to mention inspirational!
Later that afternoon, we had four hours training with Catherine Moonan from Dragon's Den.. I think that introduction says enough! She was excellent, an absolute expert in her area and a pleasure to have been working with.
Tanaiste Joan Burton was pictured in the papers last week wearing one of my hats at the event. I was full of giggles (As you probably guessed judging by the pic below!)
