What we did this month – May 2019

From eating one too many tacos to enjoying plenty of networking – the month of May was definitely one-of-a-kind!
Read on to see what fun n’ frolics May brought to the TravelMedia.ie Towers:

Office night out

It’s quite rare in TravelMedia.ie for all of us to be in the same place at once. And so, when we are – we like to take advantage of it!
In May we had a team night out which consisted of indulging in delicious tacos from the Mexican restaurant: 777 and having a sociable beer (or two).

Let’s just say, it’s always a good time with the TravelMedia.ie team.

AWTE Development Session with James Sweetman

Niamh, Bronagh and Dani attended the AWTE Development Session with James Sweetman.

On the day, AWTE held its first AGM; the current committee was re-elected, and new members were announced.
A development session with James Sweetman followed. James is a Motivational Speaker, Life Coach and Author and it’s safe to say that it was an extremely inspirational event.

Thank you to all at AWTE for organising such a great day!
