TedxStormont: Now you can hear more from ten other leading ladies

Some of Northern Ireland's most high profile and inspiring women are set to take the stage at Stormont Castle later this month as part of TEDxStormont.

Ten women from Northern Ireland will share ideas and inspirations with over 60 guests in the intimate setting of the glasshouse on May 29.

The talks will feature leading women representing diverse fields, including law, politics, religion and entertainment.

Among those speaking will be PSNI Superintendent Paula Hilman, Professor Deirdre Heenan of Ulster University and singer and musician Cheylene Murphy.

The latest event will be based on the theme of 'momentum, moving forward, gaining speed and building traction'.

Speakers will talk for 18 minutes or less, sharing their ideas on how society can overcome modern day challenges in Northern Ireland and beyond.

And there will also be a live webcast of TEDWomen from Monterey, California during the Stormont event.

Speaking at the launch of the latest talks to be held here, journalist and presenter Sarah Travers - who will compere the event - said it was "an honour" to be a part of an event that "brings women and women's issues to the forefront".

"Bringing TEDxStormont Women to the wonderful setting of Stormont Castle is the perfect place to listen to the ideas and inspiration of the wealth of speakers participating this year," she said.

"Through the power of our ideas we can overcome the challenges of the 21st century and TEDxStormont Women presents a wonderful opportunity for us to hear from some fantastic women from the worlds of politics, business, and entertainment and beyond as they share their ideas".
