Inspiration & Wisdom
By Women's Executive NetworkMay 9, 2013
Recently at a WXN Breakfast in Calgary, 2007 WXN Top 100 Hall of Fame inductee and Corporate Director Kathleen Sendall was interviewed by WXN founder, Pamela Jeffery as they delved into a variety of questions. We think Kathy’s ‘Top 10’ list makes pretty good sense and is also a great conversation starter. Here are Kathy’s ‘Top 10’:
1. Never give up the search for the perfect mascara.
2. Never lose your sense of humour and ability to laugh, especially at yourself.
3. Listen - learn to keep your mouth shut and control your temper.

‘If I had asked my customer’s what they wanted, they’d have said a faster horse’
When asked to write a piece on my experience at this month’s WXN Breakfast seminar, I was delighted. Then I realised it was on innovation. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m all for innovation but the problem is, it’s very hard to be ‘innovative’ when in this country, I was nervous I would be queuing for bread as the IMF arrived that very day.
But I pulled myself out of bed on the cold Thursday morning of 18th

Over the last forty years, Ireland has re-invented itself as a dynamic, knowledge based economy that has attracted almost 1,000* companies to base their European operations here. This has been achieved through a combination of a highly educated and skilled workforce, a very attractive corporation tax regime and a stable, pro-business government. (*IDA Ireland)
As a long standing member of the EU and an English speaking member of the Eurozone, Ireland is an ideal location for those looking to do business in a community of almost 500 million people.
