TY: Women in Business

On Tuesday 5 April 2016, eight Transition Year students took part in a visit to interview the successful Irish entrepreneur Marissa Carter, founder of the beauty brand ‘Cocoa Brown’. On arrival at her office in Dun Laoghaire, our students were first introduced to Marissa’s PR and Marketing team, where they were given an insight into the power of marketing through social media. Marissa then faced a number of questions from the Manor House girls – all business-related of course! Marissa discussed the role of women in business, her background in the industry and the challenges she has faced along the way. Her message really inspired the girls to follow their passion in life! 

This was an amazing opportunity for our students. Many thanks to Marissa for this very kind opportunity, to Orla Cafferty who arranged for this interview to take place and of course to Ms. Cassidy who accompanied the students on the trip!
