About this event

IMAGE Virtual Business Summit 2020, in partnership with PwC

This year has been a rollercoaster for companies around the world. We have had to adapt to an unstable climate and greatly expand our online presence - a modern space unfamiliar to many experienced, brick-and-mortar businesses.

That's why we are delighted to relaunch our inaugural Business Summit, in partnership with PwC, online with a focus on navigating a new economy post-2020.

Taking place November 18 & 19, the IMAGE Virtual Business Summit 2020, in partnership with PwC, will be expanded across two days of exciting discussions, interviews and masterclasses. We will bring together Ireland's businesswomen and international female luminaries from the worlds of business, politics, tech and communications, and cover an array of topical challenges that many businesses are facing at the moment.

The virtual event will bring the opinions, insights and learnings of key Irish and international business figures, mentors, thought leaders and professionals to our community of, aspirational career women, already well established in their fields, who are keen to power up in 2021 and learn how to pivot with the challenges that the world we live in today have brought.

The event is designed to offer plenty of interest and variety, whilst synergising with natural circadian energies.

In partnership with PwC

Sponsored by Dyson and BMW
