A big thank you to everyone at DCU Ryan Academy for having me on the #FemaleHighFlyers programme cycle 8.

The 13 weeks leading up to Christmas were invaluable in getting CultureMee ready to start 2019 with a bang, and I finished the programme pitching in front of a large audience with a confidence I didn’t have at the start of the programme.

I’m so grateful to have been given this opportunity.

A big thank you to Niamh Collins for steering the ship – it was a pleasure to get to know you!

I’d also like to thank all the other ladies on the programme and wish you huge success for 2019.

Please check them and their companies out – they are all going on to do big things!

A special mention also to the Ryan family. Without their vision we would never have had this programme.

Also a huge thank you to DCU, all the programme mentors, presenters and team who made it all happen, as well as Enterprise Ireland who are key sponsors of the programme.
