Longford's Anne Heraty will be keynote speaker at Science Seminar

Longford business woman Anne Heraty, Founder & CEO of Cpl Resources Plc, will be the keynote speaker at science breakfast seminar on Wednesday, November 16 in the Sheraton Hotel, Athlone.

 Young graduates, Phd level researchers, education influencers and businesses from around the Midlands region are invited to attend the free breakfast meeting as part of this year’s Midlands Science Festival in partnership with Abbott's diagnostics business in Longford.

The goal of the Midlands Science Festival is to focus on increasing Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths literacy among the Midlands population. The festival wants to take science out of the lab and into other more relaxed environments, giving people a variety of ways to explore the world around them, exchange ideas and find out just how critical science is to everyday life.

Anne Heraty, Founder & CEO of Cpl Resources Plc is a highly effective business leader from the world of recruitment and will address this breakfast event as the keynote speaker. 

Anne, who is originally from Ballinalee, will speak about how critical it is that we work together to continue to inspire the next generation of scientists and to ensure that the right types of skills are readily available to existing and future employers. 

The audience can also look forward to also hearing from Plant Manager of Abbott Diagnostics Longford, Mr Ciaran Corcoran and a staff member who will talk about her career at Abbott.

Plant manager of Abbot Diagnostics Longford, Ciaran Corcoran said, "Educational events like the Midlands Science Festival are starting to have real impact in terms of encouraging more young people to consider science when pursuing a place at third level.”
