A Fantastic Evening with Women in Enterprise at our Gala Event 2014

Women in Enterprise, in association with our local CMI, had a great evening of sharing, inspiring and connecting on Thursday 2nd October at our annual Gala Event 2014. We were inspired by the stories of innovative women who despite personal challenges along the way have created unique and exciting businesses. Interviewed in her usual engaging style by media guru Susan Rodgers of North West Regional College, Jacqueline McGonigle of Whats On NI, and Rosin Crawford of Stem Aware, shared the ups and downs of staring a business from scratch and succeeding!

With music provided by the incredibly talented Lucia McGinnis of Celtic Wedding Harps / North West Music Therapy and fabulous photography provided by the creative Laura Vickers Photography, we enjoyed a most beautiful setting with delicious food in the Best Western White Horse Hotel. Some lucky ladies also won a lovely bottle of Proscetto generously sponsored by City of Derry Airport.

We were delighted that Mayor of Derry Londonderry Cllr Brenda Stephenson was able to take time out of an incredibly busy schedule to join us on the night and share some of her experiences this year.

Women in Enterprise would like to extend our sincere thanks to all involved, who gave their time freely and without whom we could not have run this event. We look forward to our next event, i.e. our AGM/Christmas Event which will be held in late November. Keep posted for more!
