Here’s what ambitious female entrepreneurs who have signed up to AIB Women in Enterprise have to say….

Edel McGuinness


“As a business owner it is so easy to get caught up in managing a business rather than really thinking strategically and leading the business to reach its potential. This AIB Women in Enterprise Masterclass is the perfect opportunity for me to take the time I need to put myself and my business on a stronger path and in turn lead it to new heights”.

Keelin O’Keeffe


“Leadership and strategic development in small businesses is so often overlooked when you’re busy managing the day to day running of a business. Yet, to scale and grow, these two elements are critical. I’m very much looking forward to being a part of the AIB Women in Enterprise Masterclass; it will be the perfect opportunity to equip myself with the skills I need to take my business to the next level.”

Melissa Curley


“I have achieved a lot with my business through hard work and commitment but I know I need to up level my thinking and my skills to really have the impact on the business and deliver the life that I know my business can bring me. The AIB Women in Enterprise Masterclass looks like a great opportunity to kickstart that before the year ends, so I am really excited to attend.”

Jennifer Slattery


  “Attending the AIB Women in Enterprise Masterclass is a great opportunity for me to step out of my business for the day and really focus on how I will lead it to new heights. I know it has so much more potential and I really want to equip myself to take it where I know it can go.”
