Emily Ross was the guest speaker at the Limerick Civic Trust Ladies Lunch 2017 – an annual fundraising event that supports the work of the non-profit making voluntary society whose mission it is to protect and enhance Limerick’s heritage and environment through Conservation & Preservation, Improving Civic Amenities and Education & Research.

Over 60 ladies from across the Limerick region gathered at No. 1 Pery Square on Friday 10th November to attend at the Limerick Civic Trust Ladies Lunch – an annual fundraising event that supports the work of the Trust.

Emily Ross, a marketing strategist, serial entrepreneur and co-founder of the not for profit SportsTech Ireland, spoke about the power of women supporting each other and why they should acknowledge their accomplishments more.

“Pull the people around you who share your values, help each other out and you will achieve so much more and impact more people,” she said.

Whilst being client services director for a leading digital agency, she helped companies like Irish Ferries and Asavie with their digital communications. At UNICEF Ireland, she helped double corporate income whilst being head of Corporate Fundraising, through strategic partnerships with the likes of Total Produce, IKEA, Aer Lingus and P&G.

She recently co-founded the not for profit SportsTech Ireland and is on a mission to make Limerick and Ireland the world’s hub for sports technology. SportsTech Ireland, a cluster initiative, has been established to incubate and accelerate sports technology start-ups, and encourage research, innovation and thought leadership in sports technology to apply across the world of sport and fitness.

A wide variety of businesses were represented at the lunch including, Bank of Ireland, Holmes O’Malley Sexton, UL, Dolan’s, Dundon Callanan and many more.

Proceeds from the lunch will go towards the conversion of St Mary’s Church in King’s Island to a museum – this is a large scale conservation project being undertaken by Limerick Civic Trust.
