The theme of our Summer WIB Seminar is 'Under Construction - It's a Womans World'. Our seminar reflects on two Meath women who currently hold management positions in traditionally male dominated industries.
- SallyAnne Cooney; Marketing, PR & Hospitality Director of Na Cuana, Platin, Drogheda, Co. Meath
- Aileen Twibill; Works Accountant at Irish Cement, Platin, Drogheda, Co. Meath
Sally-Anne is a lover of all things whiskey, wine and gin. With a keen interest in both design and food, she is well placed to develop the visitor centre and restaurant at Boann Distillery & Boyne Brewhouse in Drogheda, Co. Meath. Following in her mum’s footsteps, having also studied horticulture, she will be sourcing our natural botanicals for our premium craft gin.
Aileen Twibill is the Works Accountant at Irish Cement Platin, Drogheda. She joined Irish Cement in 2006, having previously worked for British American Tobacco. Aileen is part of the Senior Management team in the Platin cement factory and has considerable experience in industrial operations and particularly cement manufacturing. When she is not working, you’ll find Aileen heading off camping with her family in their Vintage VW Campervan. Her other interests include reading, music and hiking, but not all at the same time!
