a number of business women across Wexford are expected to attend the second annual Enterprise Ireland International Business Women's Conference next week.

The conference will be held in conjunction with the Rose of Tralee International Festival on Monday at the Brandon Hotel, Tralee.

There is a line-up of 29 expert speakers set to take to the podium; some 27 of those are some of Ireland's leading business women and entrepreneurs. Inspirational female figures such as Eleanor McEvoy and Norah Casey from Dragons' Den will share their experiences and insights on themes such as leadership, growing a global business and entrepreneurship.

The event will celebrate the business achievements and success stories of women today under the conference theme 'The Changing Face of Success' focussing on strong female role models leading by example and empowering women to fulfil their ambitions.

Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Mary Mitchell O'Connor TD said: This is a hugely important and inspiring event, which brings together successful, inspirational female entrepreneurs. It is great to see the range and diversity of the speakers attending the conference. Promoting the achievements of women actively encourages others to aim high and in turn creates a valuable contribution to both the economy and society.'

Registration for the conference is now open online with the option of purchasing bundled tickets to the Rose of Tralee Fashion Show and the televised Selection nights in the Dome. See
