Event description

Description

Mum Talks are monthly meet–ups for women looking to feel inspired, learn something new and make new friends. Babies are welcome too! Tea, coffee and delicious fresh fruit and pastries will be available throughout the morning. You will also get to meet loads of amazing mums, bonus!

Mum Talks believe strongly that being a mum should not stop you reaching your career goals or enjoying your life passions, both of which are vital for self-care but can sometimes feel forgotten about or may need to be re-evaluated when you have children.

Mum Talks host meet-ups in a friendly and comfortable environment and invite 3 inspiring speakers to share their story and the tools they use to help navigate this exciting (and sometimes daunting!) time. Babies are more than welcome to join while you learn and feel empowered.

Mum Talks aim is to give you confidence and empower you as you get ready to return to work after maternity leave; or are thinking of starting your own business; or are adapting to life as a stay at home mum.

We are delighted to announce our speakers for the 1st May!

Eimear Fahy prior to setting up her business, Accessories4babies, Eimear had a career in the Fashion Buying industry. Buying trips abroad enabled her to learn how to source good quality products, that are value for money. She also developed great working relationships with suppliers. Buying was an amazing job but Eimear knew it was not a career she wanted to stay in once she had children. Whilst on maternity leave, Eimear discovered that there were lot of products she needed that were not available. She had always wanted to start her own business so she combined her skills to research, find and develop a range of baby products that make life easier for parents, that are easy to use and safe.
