Meet the speakers:

Elva Carri, GirlCrew

Elva inadvertently set up GirlCrew HQ in 2014 when she wanted to go out dancing but found herself with no one to go with her. Since then the female-only club has grown larger than Elva ever imagined with over 4,000 members in 22 cities- from Meath to Melbourne. On the night, she'll be talking about her journey over the last year, offering insights into why female friendship is so important yet can be hard to come by in today's busy world, and explaining why women can be powerful when they put their heads together.

Fiona Cooke,

We are so excited to have the wonderful Fiona Cooke speaking at our event. Founder of, Fiona will be treating guests to a perfume masterclass - explaining the different elements of perfumes to help us all find our signature scent. Informative and fun, Fiona is set to teach us all a thing or two.

Imen McDonnell, Farmette Blog

We are so thrilled to have the impressive Imen McDonnell speaking on the night. Imen is a blogger, columnist and author, with her first book Farmette, Recipes & Adventures from Life on an Irish Farm to be published in spring 2016. Her blog is a diary of her adventures in moving from America to Ireland to start over from scratch, embarking on a second life where nearly everything that made up her former identity was replaced with a new set of circumstances, complete with a pair of wellies and a whole lot of muck to trek through.
