Our Spotlight on Start Ups panel encouraged us all to get more involved in the start-up community.

Natasha Fennell addressed us on The Art of Confidence while the awe-inspiring ten year old Lauren Boyle taught us that age really does not matter in the digital world.

Some of the highlights included an impressive Tech Showcase alongside captivating performances from Accenture Ireland’s very own Monica Donlon, Aimee Farrell Courtney (a world champion Bodhrán player) and of course the ever extraordinary Accenturephonics.
