Salon business expert, Liz McKeon, has been awarded the coveted Business All-Star Thought Leader in Empowering Female Entrepreneurs accreditation.

The accreditation is overseen by the prestigious All-Ireland Business Foundation, whose adjudication panel is chaired by Dr Briga Hynes, of the Kemmy Business School at the University of Limerick, and Kieran Ring, CEO of the Global Institute of Logistics.

“My accreditation makes me feel very acknowledged and happy to see that female entrepreneurship is being so highly recognised, and its good to know that I’ve played a small role in that,” says Liz McKeon. “I feel this award is almost like a lifetime achievement and I like the fact that it’s on my own merit. This award is an independently verified standard mark for indigenous businesses, based on a very rigorous selection criteria.

“I didn’t feel I was in competition with anybody else except myself. It is very empowering to receive recognition within my own industry and recognition in relation to the importance of female entrepreneurship in general. I would like to use this award to continue my work in assisting women in business. This award strengthens my credibility and, given the challenges of 2020, it proves how important it is to remain positive and focused on the opportunities.”
