Date for your diary: TWIG Summer Networking Lunch on 19 May 2017
Dublin's InterContinental Hotel Ballsbridge will host event with panel of insightful speakers
23 February 2017
This coming May will see leading women from Ireland’s grocery industry gather at the 2017 Today’s Women in Grocery Summer Networking Lunch. The TWIG group was created by the Irish Grocers Benevolent Fund as a platform for women in the industry to grow their connection and discuss issues of concern within the industry and elsewhere.
The event will take place at Dublin’s InterContinental Hotel Ballsbridge on 19 May, and will feature speakers such as Irish Distillers Pernod Ricard MD Louise Ryan, Aoibheann O’Brien of FoodCloud and Tesco Commercial Director Sheila Gallagher. MC on the day will be Melanie Morris, Editor-in-chief of Image Magazine.
Sharon Yourell Lawlor, chair of the Committee and MD of Think Plan Do Consulting said her organisation is delighted to be hosting the event. “This luncheon will give women in grocery the opportunity to connect and foster important connections with fellow retailer, agencies and suppliers,” she said. “It will also give them an opportunity to listen to the inspirational stories and experiences of ‘Growing Connections’ in the careers of our insightful speakers.”
TWIG, as part of the IGBF, is striving to encourage more female participation in industry events and initiatives. The event opens with a champagne and networking reception followed by lunch. The cost of a table of 10 is €1,750, or €175 per ticket. For further information, contact Roisin Higgins in Hotel Solutions firstname.lastname@example.org / 01 6309211.
