There will be a series of immersive sessions chaired
by Norah Casey exploring real life experiences and
unlocking the inner secrets to success from highly
inspirational women in business.

Throughout the day there will be time to work the
exhibition area and network with some of Ireland’s
most successful women.

The route to learning is through real life stories from
other successful women and female founders and
interaction with experienced leaders and entrepreneurs.
The Planet Woman Academy is pioneering a new
approach to learning, based on the knowledge that to
trigger real change in women, to motivate them and
inspire them to overcome their internal barriers, calls
for a far deeper engagement than lectures, speeches
and presentations that comprise a typical business

conference. It involves effective conversations with
women about how they achieved success in the
entrepreneurial, corporate, public, professional
or political world, all which have proven to be

more effective. Through this format these women’s
influence and engagement is more powerful.
