Our Women in Leadership series for 2023 concludes with Louise Grubb, Co-Founder & CEO with Trivium Vet as our guest speaker.  Louise is a serial life science entrepreneur with a track record for success. She has built businesses locally, grown them in south-east Ireland, and then sold them globally.  Louise’s second start-up was  ‘Q1 Scientific’  which was the first Irish company to specialise in the provision of a stability storage service, meeting the highest international standards, as required for the highly regulated pharma, medical devices and bio-sciences industries. Today Q1 Scientific can count some of the world’s top pharma companies as clients.

We’re delighted to also welcome Deb Mangone as the MC for this event.  Deb is the Country Manager with Pfizer Healthcare Ireland, having been appointed into this role in September 2022.  

We’re really looking forward to the conversation between these two leaders about their career journeys to date, some of the lessons learnt, challenges faced and what excites them for the future.  

Please note that this series is not a women only event!
All members are most welcome to these inspiring and thought provoking leadership events.
