Think Less and Think Local

December 11, 2023

Circular economy and how we can make an impact in our lives

 We could not have made our sustainable shopping event happen without Lisa, she brought the idea from pen and paper to reality. Networking with the local independent businesses and seeing how we can best support and include them to guiding us on our advertising, she didn’t miss a detail. 

On the evening of the event, she showcased all the chosen pieces of clothing and spoke of the importance of supporting local, sustainable shopping choices and the impact fast fashion is having on our environment and local high street.

Lisa spoke with such warmth and energy and that was reflected back to her with interactive conversation and interaction from the audience, we can’t wait to work with her on future events.

ENTERPRISING23 MC and Networking Masterclass facilitator

October 11, 2023

We had previously seen Lisa in action, so she was our first choice as MC for our recent ENTERPRISING23 event – and we knew immediately we were in good hands. 

From the outset Lisa grasped our vision and goals for ENTERPRISING23 and became an invaluable member of the organising team.  Lisa did her homework and attended briefing sessions with panellists and participants in advance of the event, offering constructive advice and suggestions on format and tone.

On the day itself, Lisa skilfully guided the participants and contributors through the proceedings – reading the room and injecting both humour and a firm hand when required.  Lisa is a master of her craft and a pleasure to work with – make her your first choice too.

MC and Moderator for IdeasLab IWD CreateHER event 2023

March 27, 2023

Lisa Regan recently MC’d our CreateHER finale in the Druid Theatre in Galway city. Her commitment to the event from the outset was evident and she supported us in the venue selection to ensure the right atmosphere, worked with us on running order, theme and stage set up. Lisa captured the essence and feel of the event we were trying hold. Through her research, thoughtful questions and inclusive style she brought our vision to life, for what was a night us and the audience will remember for a long time. Although Lisa had one role on the night she gave so much more to the entire event than we could have asked for.

CreateHer with University of Galway IdeasLab International Women’s Day event

March 10, 2023

CreateHer with University of Galway IdeasLab International Women’s Day event at Druid Theatre Company

This year through my ongoing work with IdeasLab I was asked to moderate, MC and hold a panel discussion for International Women’s Day. As always my recommendation for this was The Mick Lally Theatre which is ran by the wonderful Siomha and is one of my favourite spaces in Galway.

We have talked alot about equality over the years and now we are looking at how we can move towards a more equitable society.

Simply put: Equality means everyone gets a shoe.
Equity means everyone gets a shoe that fits.

The passionate, captivating, and creative tour de force, Noeline Kavanagh who has brought so much joy and our imaginations to life through her work with the internationally acclaimed Galway-based theatre spectacle company Macnas – Spectacle Theatre Company agreed to be our keynote speaker.

She was the first female and the youngest person at 23 to ever direct the Macnas parade which happened in 2008. It was one of the largest parades ever – with over 500 community participants in it.

Driven by love, imagination, friendship, possibility, chance, choice, challenge, Noeline Kavanagh is a person that offers and delivers so much. Her words on the night lifted the roof and everyone in the room, it was in her vulnerability and honesty we saw her true character and what an incredible person she is. A true leader.

On the panel was Vanessa Creaven
Co-Founder + CEO Spotlight Oral Care
Dr. Natalie Walsh
Director of Entrepreneurial Development University of Galway
Mary Ryan
Deputy CEO WestBIC

These conversations began with defining personal success and how that is ever changing, how we can practically support each other throughout our careers, why being amped up and super charged on busy mode is so 2018 and what we have changed our minds about and why that is a very good thing. Nothing is as enjoyable as good conversation and connection with other people in real life.

This night was all of that.

Thank you Tribe Hospitality Group for the refreshments and WestBIC for sponsoring.

Martina Regan was on hand to capture the ,magic.

Lisa Regan Public Relations (Me) handled all pre and post communications and the MC’ing duties on the evening to which I take very seriously as I love nothing more than researching and being invested in those I am talking and listening to.

Thank you Lisa. 


Lifeline- Galway International Arts Festival Galway, Galway Community Circus, Jigsaw and the Finnish Institute in the UK and Ireland 

September 6, 2022

We have worked with Lisa in the past in a training capacity (side note: she’s an incredible woman to facilitate a group of young people) but this summer we were delighted to work again with Lisa when she moderated a panel discussion on youth mental health as part of the Galway International Arts Festival, in conjunction with Galway Community Circus & the Finnish Institute in the UK & Ireland

The young people involved have said that they felt so comfortable with Lisa’s approach as a moderator and as an audience member I can tell you that she’s second to none. She’s kind, compassionate and yet she not afraid to ask difficult questions. She makes sure to make all participants feel involved, valued and most importantly heard. And did I mention she’s a gas woman?! We’re so, so glad that Lisa was free to lead this discussion, it was all the better for her involvement.
