The evening features significant keynote speakers. At last year’s event we welcomed Managing Director of Microsoft Ireland, Cathriona Hallahan and the first lady of Irish horse racing Anne Marie O'Brien as feature speakers of the evening. Both ladies received a standing ovation for their inspirational talks which touched everyone in the room. This year we are delighted to welcome Lady Chanelle McCoy, who leads Chanelle medical, part of the multi-million pound global company Chanelle Pharmaceutical Group based in Galway. Chanelle is a popular business, leadership and motivational speaker due to her experience of co-heading up Ireland’s largest indigenous Pharmaceutical Company, being responsible for over 500 people and turning-over in excess of €115m. She is also a huge supporter of women in business and mentoring young entrepreneurs.
Chanelle is married to Sir AP McCoy OBE, Champion Jump Jockey for 20 consecutive years. When he retired in 2015, AP was awarded with the BBC’s Lifetime Achievement Award and was knighted by the Queen for his Services to Horseracing. Chanelle’s love for business has also seen her branch out into the fashion industry. In 2014 Chanelle and 5 partners opened the doors of Mojo & McCoy, a successful boutique in Berkshire.
