Louise Phelan from Rathdowney has risen to the top of the corporate world and she was the special guest at this week’s Women in Business Networking lunch held in the Killeshin Hotel in Portlaoise.

The lunch was part of Local Enterprise Week and celebrated International Women’s Day.

It was organised by the Local Enterprise Office Laois in collaboration with Laois Chamber.

Louise is the current CEO of Phelan Energy Group and former vice-president of PayPal.

She has also served as Director of Ryanair since 2012 and held the prestigious position of President of the American Chamber of Commerce in 2014, the first woman to ever hold this role.

She was interviewed on stage by Ronan Berry from Midlands 103.

“Small businesses throughout Laois have been severely impacted by Covid-19 restrictions.

“That’s why initiatives like Women in Business Networking lunch as part of Local Enterprise Week 2022 is more important than ever to give an opportunity for women in business to network and celebrate International Womens’ Day,” said Honor Deevy from the Laois Local Enterprise Office.

The lunch was also attended by Caroline Hoffman, CEO of Laois Chamber, and by Alison Browne, president of Laois Chamber.
