Cork woman announced as Network Ireland President

Wednesday, 16th January, 2019 9:55am

A Cork woman is now at the helm of one of Ireland’s largest networking groups. 

Helen Wycherley has been appointed the 2019 President of Network Ireland and details of her plans for the next year were revealed this morning.

Her presidency theme for this year is ‘Step Up’ and she wants to help women all around Ireland to fulfil their potential by empowering them to step up and do more.

Due to the structure and make-up of Network Ireland, she believes that it is ideally placed to encourage women to put themselves forward more and to set more ambitious targets. She explained: “Through my presidency of Network Ireland, I want to help women to fulfil their potential by empowering them to step up and do more. That is why I’ve chosen #StepUp as the theme for 2019.”

Helen is a director at the Celtic Ross Hotel in Rosscarbery and the Marina Commercial Park in Cork city, both of which are family businesses. This year, she also takes on the role of National President of Network Ireland and was previously President of the Network Ireland Cork branch. 

She added: “I want to help and support our members, to do more and be more. So this year will be all about empowering women to step up to the challenge, to be ready to seize opportunities as they arise, to be confident and go for that promotion, apply for that grant application, go on State boards or take more risks and to say ‘I can’, not ‘I might’ or ‘maybe’.

“The theme is nothing new. Indeed, I see Network Ireland’s ongoing purpose as helping women to #StepUp. Our mission, after all, is to lead the way for ambitious and enterprising women, support the professional and personal development of women and collaborate with government, private and non profit sectors to help women succeed,” she concluded.
