The countdown is on to the Enterprise Ireland International Business Women's Conference which will be held in conjunction with the Rose of Tralee International festival.

Enterprise Ireland is calling on the business women of Cork to join them and the line up of 29 expert speakers are set to take to the podium.

Some of the speakers at the conference are among the country's leading business women and entrepreneurs and inspirational female figures such as Eleanor McEvoy and Norah Casey from Dragon's Den will share their experiences and insights on themes such as leadership, growing a global business and of course, entrepreneurship.

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

Enterprise Ireland CEO, Julie Sinnamon said: "A key focus for Enterprise Ireland is helping businesses to start, innovate and scale. Last year we invested in a record number of female-led start-up companies, and we are determined to increase this number. At Enterprise Ireland we recognise the huge contribution women make to Irish businesses, large and small, across every region in Ireland.

The International Business Women's Conference aims to highlight the entrepreneurial capability and success of Irish women, and inspire all business women to expand their business horizons by leveraging the global Irish network".

The conference will take place on Monday, August 22 at the Brandon Hotel and registration is now open online with the added option of purchasing bundled tickets to the Rose of Tralee Fashion Show and the televised Selection nights in the Dome.
