Irish Business Women Rock!

I’m still recovering from doing two conferences and driving 500 miles last Thursday and Friday.  It was great to catch up with Michele, Brian and Jason at the Irish Internet Association Annual Congress, and I also met Richard Delevan, Richard Hearne and David Behan, to mention just a few.

After a heroic editing marathon, Brian has just published the entire suite of podcasts from Thursday’s conference.  If you weren’t there (or if you spent the day networking in the corridors), you can now take in the presentations and discussions at your leisure.  Well done Brian – and well done Microsoft Ireland for recognising the sponsorship value of these podcasts.  They’ll continue to resonate on the internet for months to come.

Terry ProneOnce I dragged myself away from the IIA, I had a late night drive to Mayo, where I was the podcaster-in-residence at the IrishBusinessWomen.com conference.  Unlike Brian however, I’ll be spreading the post-production of these over a couple of weeks.  The first one is published today (24MB, 41:14, MP3), and features valuable advice on communications by one of Ireland’s most respected practitioners: Terry Prone of Carr Communications.  Terry’s message is wonderfully clear: Listen.  Keep it simple.  Don’t use tricks or gimmicks.  Be interesting, understandable and memorable.

I’ll have more to say about the IBW conference soon.  It was a wonderful experience and I want to thank Annette Clancy the chairperson, Finola Howard the organiser and Mayo County Enterprise Board for inviting me to get involved.  I’ll publish a new podcast every couple of days, and meanwhile you should check out Claire‘s photographs and Keith‘s live-blogging from the event.

  3. Thank you Finola! I really enjoyed the opportunity to capture the energy of this event.

    There’s still one more podcast left to publish, by the way. Watch out for it next week!
