THE Limerick branch of Network Ireland, which supports the professional and personal development of women, has elected Karen Ronan Brosnahan as its President for the coming year.
General Manager of the Shannon Region Conference and Sports Bureau, Ms Brosnahan is a native of Limerick and a graduate of the Kemmy School of Business at the University of Limerick.
She has an extensive background in business and sports tourism with over 25 years’ experience in the tourism industry in Ireland and internationally. Having worked in Bord Failte, New York and hotels in sales and marketing roles, Karen moved to the newly formed Shannon Region Conference and Sports Bureau in 2003 and for almost two decades, has successfully delivered business in the conference, corporate and sports sector for the Shannon region.
She was presented with the chain of office by outgoing president Emma Wilson and confirmed that Fiona Doyle will serve as Vice President for 2023.
Ms Brosnahan said she was looking forward to supporting members and providing opportunities for everyone to connect, learn and share ideas.
“After such a challenging few years, it’s important to stay connected or to reconnect. Now that we can meet again face to face, a network that supports, educates, and challenges its members is as important as ever.
She has chosen Down Syndrome Limerick as Network Limerick’s charity partner for 2023. Certain events throughout the year will have a fundraising element and all monies raised will be sent directly to the charity.
Membership of Network Ireland Limerick is made up of a diverse group of women from across the Mid-West, from budding entrepreneurs, SME owners, professionals and leaders in large organisations to non profits, charities, arts and the public sector. It is supported by Local Enterprise Office Limerick.
Activities for the year get under way with a Masterclass on finding clarity, gaining confidence and reclaiming personal power by international speaker, mentor and coach Aidan O’Brien on Wednesday, January 25 in the Savoy Hotel.
