Donna Kennedy is a three-time bestselling author, with The Confidence to Succeed being her most recent release. She is a qualified psychologist, life coach, business coach and mentor. Her academic work has been published nationally and internationally by various faculties, including The American Journal of Psychology and The Irish Psychological Record. She has been endorsed by world leading organisations and has worked with many personal development leaders, including Bob Proctor (The Secret), Mark Victor-Hansen (Chicken Soup for The Soul), Brian Tracy (CEO of Brian Tracy International and bestselling author of 77 books), Sharon Lechter (Think and Grow Rich for Women and Rich Dad, Poor Dad), Lorel Langemier (The Secret), Anthony Robbins Foundation etc. Donna regularly features in national and international media as an expert in the areas of personal and business development and several large organisations have used her material to market products and train staff.

Donna’s life today is one of happiness, health and success. However, it wasn’t always that way. At one point in her life her confidence was so low that she was afraid to cross the street on her own, as a result of several challenges. Incredibly, despite the challenges Donna endured, she has gone on to become what she is today and now she teaches people all over the world how to do the same.

Having learned from some of the world's greatest achievers, at age 23 she bought her first investment property and at age 28 she created her first company, turning over a €1,000,000 in the first year. Year-on-year she has gone from strength to strength and is impacting people worldwide with her fresh and unique approach. If you want better results in your life and business, pay attention to what this lady teaches.

Joanna Murphy is the Chief Executive Officer of the group, Director of ConnectIreland, Board Member and Director of the Irish Diaspora Loan fund.

ConnectIreland began as a globally unique job creation initiative which emerged from the Global Irish Economic forum in 2011, and has been responsible for the creation of thousands of jobs.

The programme is internationally award winning and is recognised as a global exemplar of best citizen engagement with almost 100,000 connectors in 147 countries worldwide!

The mission of ConnectIreland originally was to mobilise the Global Irish community to introduce companies planning to expand to Europe to Ireland, however under Joanna's stewardship the initiative has morphed into a much larger inward investment promotion agency which seeks to encourage companies to establish in Ireland, expand to Ireland, or to invest in Ireland through the Irish Disapora loan fund, thereby creating employment, most particularly in regional Ireland.

Joanna's expertise is in inward investment and Irish economic development. She will show you how you can excel in a demanding role and achieve what you want in your life and/or business.

And 1 more speaker to be announced soon!!!
