Hi there, and welcome to my 100minds profile!

I'm Emma, hailing originally from Carlingford, more commonly known as 'The Jewel of the North East' or hen/stag capital of Ireland. I'm in second year in UCD studying international commerce with French.

I was honoured to be selected as a participant for 100minds this year, where those who were selected are challenged with the task of raising €1000.

Every cent raised will go directly to Temple Street Children's Hospital, where a much-needed classroom will be built for patients residing in St Gabriel's Ward. I jumped at the chance to contribute to the cause, mainly due to the fact that my younger brother, who was born with bilateral cleft lip and palate, was operated on and cared for by the incredible surgeons, doctors and nurses who work here.

Women in Business Forum in aid of Temple St. Children's Hospital

This event is taking place on Thursday 2nd February from 7pm -9pm in the Four Seasons Hotel, Carlingford.

There will be a selection of speakers who excel in their respective fields to discuss their experiences in business, and give practical tips on building your brand using digital marketing and networking. There will be a panel-style discussion at the end of the evening where members of the audience can pose questions to the speakers.

Tickets for the event are 15 euros and available to purchase from https://www.100minds.org/2017/1331/emma-shields Simply hit the 'Donate' button and fill in your name and you will receive a ticket by email.

Featured speakers:

Siobhan O'Hagan, of OHFitness.ie, who after studying actuarial mathematics in DCU, left a 9-5 job in finance to start her own online coaching business and become a qualified personal trainer. Siobhan now boasts a following of 90k followers on social media and a host of successful sponsorship deals.

Local entrepreneur Margaret Robb, who owns Ireland's largest baby and nursery store Sweet Little Babies, won Best Established Business in IBYE last year, will discuss how she achieved such a renowned reputation in business.

Julie Hastings, marketing director of Hastings Hotel Group (Europa Hotel Belfast, Slieve Donard Hotel, Everglades Hotel) will discuss her role in boosting the brand of the renowned Northern Irish hotel group.

Olivia May, programme director of William J Clinton Institute of Leadership in Queen's University Belfast. Olivia will talk about the value of networking and her role in WJC Institute.

With regards to the organisation behind the initiative, 100minds is an innovative social enterprise project that connects ambitious and motivated students with deserving charities. They have raised an astonishing sum of money for charities and I'm delighted to be part of such a worthwhile cause.
