Instead of canceling or postponing, transitioning in-person events to a virtual or online experience has become the ‘new norm’ as we continue to adjust to Government restrictions. This year has been a particularly hard year for everybody in business however Network Galway, a branch of Network Ireland, a national organisation for Women in Business, the Professions and the Arts, forged ahead and held its annual Businesswoman of the Year Awards for Network Galway last night, Wednesday 27 August, via party hosts Zoomparty.ie.
The virtual event backed by AIB Bank and supported by the Local Enterprise Office, was hosted by Network Galway President Sharon Egan and Gemma Ní Chionnaith. Proceeds from the ticket sales went to charity partners Rainbows Ireland.
The following businesswomen were selected from 21 finalists to receive awards across a number of categories:
Sinead Cassidy – Regional Winner, Transformative Employee Category.
