Can I pick two?! Terry Pratchett for being so wonderfully clever with words and JK Rowling for helping to revolutionise children’s publishing and for having a heroine who loves to read.
Since it’s a dream world (and since it’s nearly Christmas) — Elvis Presley, because my dad is a big fan. Especially if he sings Christmas songs.

I’m a procrastinator. But I also like lists, or rather, I like ticking things off lists. I have, on occasion, added something I’ve already done to a list just so I can have the satisfaction of ticking if off. So the lists part helps with the procrastinator part.
Can I pick three?! Ciara Wilson for being a rock of support to me this past year; Mary Robinson because my dad always said I’d be Ireland’s first female president, but I think being President of Network Cork means more; and Michelle Obama for always speaking her mind.
Try it out — it’ll be the best gamble you’ll ever make.
To get things done. To continue the wonderful job of my predecessors in making Network Cork the go-to organisation for women in business.
