Moira Ní Ghallachóir
Moira is an international speaker and business mentor, as well as the founder of Secret Suppers Worldwide™; a new and stylish networking platform that is sweeping the world.
Unlike most networking events, this is about deep conversations, real connections and being catalysts for change. 1000’s of the profits generated are given to global causes such as human trafficking awareness and micro business lending to women in 3rd world countries.
When she’s not hosting these events, Moira trains entrepreneurs on building a top tier income from speaking and a globetrotting lifestyle. Her mission is to help more women and a few good men take the stage with a powerful message and story, so they too can have the impact they want and make the money they want to live the life they want.
