Ken Murphy, Director of CareerWise Recruitment said; “Sinéad gave a very honest and inspiring talk about her career and her vision for the youth of today. She gave a very open view on her career and her hopes for the next generation. Most of her jobs did not exist when she studied law many years ago and for the next generation, many of the jobs they will work have not been invented yet. She indicated that it is very important to continue with the promotion of STEM subjects for boys and girls so that they can be trained in developing critical thinking skills. Also in the age of social media, it is very important that we do not lose the skills of verbal communication.”
