My first response was I wanted to have an event in Sligo that I would personally like to attend. There are interesting events every night of the week in Dublin but not so much here. No reason why not, we just have to get off our bums and create them. Secondly it gives me a platform to chat to people I wouldn’t always encounter via the bread-and-butter business of digital marketing. Some very inspiring, enterprising, clever and creative people.
I will admit Swell is slightly inspired by the Do Lectures. We want Swell to become Ireland’s Number 1 Ideas Conference. There’s a goal eh?
What started with an idea over coffee and a chat with Shona from Sligo LEADER Partnership has snowballed into something that has ignited interest from attendees and speaker both locally, nationally and internationally. We are super grateful to LEADER for coming on board as funders for the network and to all the sponsors willing to support something a little bit different.
So yes the Swell Summit promises to be an epic event; there are currently more than 60 people on a waitlist for the event!.
A day of inspiration, creativity and meeting like-minded people. Hopefully there won’t be a suit in sight. See you there!
