Leigh Gillen Events – featured in this weeks Irish Examiner
“Events are such an important part of business and companies need to know that their event is in competent hands. I see companies using stretched internal resources to put together their events, taking busy people away from their own jobs. Quality events require such attention to detail that it is a lot more time-consuming than you would think.
“Events are live, they must be exactly right. In as much as you might outsource your IT or your HR, Leigh Gillen Events is an outsource resource to bring a high level of quality and professionalism to each and every event.
“In terms of taking the leap into the entrepreneurial world, it has been a long-standing dream of mine to run my own business. In my career, I have met many start-ups and it always impresses me to see people mapping their own journey and following their dreams,” Ms Gillen said.
She has been one of the most familiar faces on the Cork corporate scene for over a decade, co-ordinating events for Cork Chamber – but now is the time for Leigh Gillen to take that experience and run her own business.
