Our Guest Speakers

We’re honoured to have a fabulous panel of women joining us for International Women’s Day, sharing their inspiring and uplifting stories.

Georgie Crawford

Health Coach, Wellness Speaker and Founder of The Good Glow podcast.

After being diagnosed with breast cancer age 32, Georgie’s life was turned upside down. Before starting an intensive 23 weeks of chemotherapy, Georgie made the decision to take to social media and document her journey to try to raise awareness of the increasing occurrence of breast cancer in younger women. The support of her online following and the hundreds of good news stories from others inspired Georgie to create The Good Glow podcast, and use it to inspire others on their journey. It is a space where Georgie inspires her audience through her own experience and her guests’ stories, discussing everything from wellness and overcoming adversity to achieving goals, making positive change and taking steps towards a happier and healthier life.

Sharon Keegan

Founder and Chief Confidence Creator of independent Irish active-wear brand Peachylean.

At the age of 33 Peachylean founder and CEO, Sharon Keegan, became a new Mother and struggled with postnatal depression. Being no stranger to throwing herself into adversity, Sharon decided to go back and study Innovation and Entrepreneurship in University College Dublin. This helped her to not only overcome her anxiety and postnatal depression, but also compelled her to help other women who were going through similar experiences. Having found huge solace in exercise throughout her most arduous times, Sharon decided to create a product that she couldn’t find on the market: supportive, comfortable, excellent quality leggings that would not only support a woman’s shape, but would also help give them the confidence and self-esteem to move for their mind. Sharon’s mission was simple; to help women to silence their inner critic, to stop holding themselves back and discover their true potential in life, and to ultimately love themselves.
