There was a great turnout in White's Hotel last Tuesday as Wexford Women in Business set out to raise some much needed funds for the Wexford Women's Refuge.
Denise Whitmore of Wexford Women in Business said the event had been a fantastic success.
'We were absolutely delighted with how it went. It all came together really well. We have 30 businesses exhibiting on the day and over 100 people visited the expo so we were delighted with the turn out. We definitely raised over €1,000 for Wexford Women's Refuge but we are still finalising figures.'
The speakers on the day included John Sweeney, founder of the global Suspended Coffee Movement, Daniel Farinha, CEO of Shellac Nails LTD, and Danielle Serpico founder of the Blackbelt Mastermind. Their talks offered tips, motivation and advice to business start ups.
'We had some great speakers', said Denise 'who all gave their time freely in aid of the great cause.'
In addition to the keynote speakers there was also a number of workshops on the day.
