The fabulous Royal Marine Hotel in Dun Laoghaire hosted our recent networking event in March. Aidan Ryan, General Manager of the Royal Marine, welcomed everybody to the hotel and its surrounds, before we introduced Deborah Shaw, celebrity PA and personal stylist to give her personal styling tips.
Deborah gave some great advice about investing in a limited amount of good quality pieces of wardrobe staples, that you can mix and match with clothing from the high street. Organising your wardrobe the same way you would your bosses’ diary is key she told our attentive audience – everything should have a place and you will save time and effort deciding what to wear each morning if you start with this. She also advised on tools you should use when going shopping, including honing your bargaining skills, making a list before you go (as you would if food shopping) and making sure to buy splashes of colourful clothes wherever you can.
Deborah is also currently working with pa-assist on their nationwide PA of the Year Awards and she spoke about the importance of the Awards for the profession and for individuals alike.
We ended the evening with some delicious canapes from the hotel’s hot food menu, washed down with refreshing beverages and wine for those that weren’t driving!
Everybody who attended took away a goody-bag with them which included Sansana spa treatments vouchers, delicious champagne truffles provided courtesy of Hampers & Co, a water bottle, USB keys and special offer vouchers for the Royal Marine Hotel.
Congratulations goes to Lisa Dunne from Aecom who won the large picnic hamper sponsored by Hampers & Co and we hope you get to enjoy it soon Lisa (if you haven’t already!)
