Red Chair: President of Cork Chamber – Gillian Keating

Cork Chamber had to wait almost two centuries for its first female president but they have found someone special in Gillian Keating.

In our Red Chair, Gillian shared her story on how she became a successful corporate lawyer before being approached to run for Chamber president.

You’ll hear words like grit and hard work. Nothing was handed on a plate to Gillian, and she credits a lot of her success to the mindset taught to her in school.

You’ll hear of dis-satisfaction with naysayers and big ambition for the future of Cork as a city, and as a region.

On a special Smarter Egg occasion when we celebrated International Women’s Day, Gillian inspired many in the audience with her calm optimism and her belief in personal progress.

This conversation was recorded at a Smarter Egg event at Upstairs at the White Horse, Ballincollig, Ireland in March 2014. Smarter Egg clients from across the business spectrum were in attendance, along with some invited guests. The video footage was filmed and edited by Ian Armstrong of Onevision Multimedia.
