Our Founder Vivian Mckendry is recently featured on the cover of Irish Independent Life Magazine


Celebrating International Women's Day with Life Magazine and Kildare Village

It's not every day that one finds themselves featured in a renowned publication like Life Magazine by the Irish Independent, especially in celebration of something as significant as International Women's Day. I am beyond delighted to share that I had the incredible opportunity to be part of a meaningful campaign initiated by Kildare Village, showcasing not just my journey, but the inspiring stories of four other exceptional businesswomen. Each of us comes from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and ethnicities, bringing unique perspectives and invaluable contributions to the business world.

This feature represents more than just recognition; it's a celebration of the resilience, creativity, and leadership that women bring to every field, especially in entrepreneurship. Being selected by Kildare Village to represent alongside these amazing women has been a truly humbling experience. It's a reminder of how far we've come and the collective strides we continue to make towards a more inclusive and equitable business landscape.
