These included accounting, law, management consultancy, public service, construction/engineering, PR/Marketing/Digital, Tech/Startup, medicine/pharma, and retail/commercial service providers.
During the event, over 100 guests, which included students (mentees) and mentors, were paired up, allowing for informal advice to be given, and contacts and networks to be established and strengthened.
With an opening address from ByrneWallace Employment Law Partner Michelle Ni Longáin and Chairman of the Mayo Association Michael Kealy, other speakers included Mark Duffy, Councillor, Mayo County Council and Nathan Murphy, Off the Ball, Newstalk who shared their career journeys and highlighted the importance of networking and making connections.
