Sue Stockdale — business woman, athlete, author, and record breaking explorer — is delivering an exciting workshop in Westport on March 9 to celebrate International Women’s Day. Mayo County Enterprise Board is hosting this motivational event on the theme of “Making it Happen — Transforming Your Belief Into Action”. It takes place in Knockranny House Hotel, starting at 7pm and advance booking is essential.
“We are absolutely delighted to have Sue Stockdale with us to celebrate International Women’s Day,” said Frank Fullard, CEO, Mayo CEB. “She is a truly inspirational international figure who has a strong impact on everyone who attends her workshops. In the current challenging economic climate, it is vital for entrepreneurs to stay motivated and goal focused. This event will be effective for women at all levels of business.”
Sue Stockdale is a much sought-after speaker who has an engaging way of connecting with her audience and passing on some of her own hard-won techniques and approaches. In 1996 she became the first British woman to walk to the Magnetic North Pole, having neither skied cross-country nor experienced anywhere colder than her native Scotland. She held senior positions in corporate training and development in a number of large organisations. In 1997, she founded Mission Possible - her own company which focuses on inspiring women to achieve their goals.
Sue is an accomplished athlete, representing Scotland in 3,000m and cross country events. She was runner-up in Channel 4's Superhuman where she undertook some of the toughest tests ever seen on TV including escaping from a crashed helicopter submerged under water, and appeared on BBC1's Test the Nation as part of the winning Explorers team.
In addition, Ms Stockdale has a very strong business background. She has an MSc in quality management and improvement, an MBA in entrepreneurship and business venturing, and is author of Kickstart your Motivation and Secrets of Successful Women Entrepreneurs.
International Women’s Day is a day of global celebration of the economic, political, and social achievements of women past, present, and future. Some countries have made it an official public holiday. For the past few years Mayo County Enterprise Board has marked International Women’s Day by hosting an event for female entrepreneurs in the county.
