The Pink Tank Roadshow Comes to Mayo
The Pink Tank, an all-woman motivational road show, is coming to Mayo on the 8th of November for a night of insight, inspiration and entertainment in aid of Pink Ribbon Mayo.
A twist on ‘think tank’, the live panel show looks for answers to the many questions we all have nowadays about family life, business, the economy, relationships, and the future.
Presenters Orlaith Carmody, Nicola Byrne and Linda O’Shea-Farren not only have personal lives fully lived, but they have a wide experience in law, the media, banking, business and politics. Together they are The Pink Tank, a provocative exploration of life and love, news and views, politics and power which is currently visiting selected venues around the country.
Raw, unscripted and unrehearsed, the drama is in the unpredictable – the presenters have nowhere to hide, and take the questions from the audience exactly as they find them.
Topics discussed on the evening could cover anything from the presidential race to entrepreneurship, and from career choices to staying strong in the recession, depending on what the audience asks for. The members of the panel were experienced speakers and programme contributors individually, before they set up the Pink Tank as a response to the lack of female motivational speakers on the conference circuit. They have run their show to wide acclaim for business and general audiences around the country.
“We make no apologies for being an all-female panel” says Nicola Byrne. “Women always speak very frankly to each other in private and we just bring these topics to a public forum, where they desperately need to be aired.”
Nicola is the founder and CEO of Call 11890 and a popular media commentator on a wide range of business related issues. She is joined on the panel by Orlaith Carmody, a former RTÉ television journalist, who runs Mediatraining.ie with her husband and business partner, Gavin Duffy of the Dragons’ Den, and is on the Board of RTÉ. Linda O Shea Farren is an international corporate lawyer and a former government Programme Manager.
This will be Network Mayo’s finale event for 2011, and proceeds will be donated to the Pink Ribbon [Mayo] breast cancer research charity. “It’s going to be a fun, interesting and invigorating night – all in aid of a superb charity – don’t miss out! I’m delighted to support such a worthy cause for my final event as President and I know the Pink Tank will certainly provide us with a night to remember!” says President of Network Mayo, Olwen Dawe.
The Pink Tank / Pink Ribbon Mayo event will take place on Tuesday 8th of November at the Harlequin Hotel, Castlebar. The evening will commence at 7.30, with a wine and canapé reception. Tickets are priced at €15, and are available from the Harlequin Hotel or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
