NATIONAL MENOPAUSE SUMMIT Continuing the Conversation

We are proud to announce the launch of the inaugural National Menopause Summit supported by M&S taking place in The Round Room at The Mansion House, Dublin 2 on Thursday, March 23, 2023

Featuring the phenomenal Davina McCall, whose advocacy around perimenopause and menopause is unsurpassed and moderated by renowned journalist and broadcaster Gráinne Seoige and featuring a speaker panel of leading clinicians, facilitators and professionals in the area – The National Menopause Summit supported by M&S full day event will shift the narrative by debunking myths and taboos, providing inclusive fact based information, advocating for support across both the personal and professional arenas and provide a platform of understanding and respect to ensure no one suffers needlessly at this oftentimes highly challenging and transitional stage of life.

This Masterclass in Menopause will deliver the ‘no filter reality’ of the serious challenges perimenopause and menopause presents while affording attendees best in class knowledge and information to negotiate these challenges.

Also championing for a ‘new norm’ across the Irish workplace, The National Menopause Summit supported by M&S will advocate and empower the introduction of inclusive, compassionate and sympathetic work policies to ensure all feel supported to forge forward in their careers, thus stemming the flow of women choosing to exit the workforce, or disregard opportunities for advancement, due to the lack of these crucial supports.

One of Ireland’s favourite comedians, the inimitable Deirdre O’Kane will close out the day with a stand-up comedy set musing on all things menopause, midlife and the maelstrom that is modern living

Join us at this landmark event, in the beautiful surroundings of The Round Room at The Mansion House in Dublin’s city centre, for a packed agenda of knowledge, advice, support and content delivered by our powerful, expertly curated panel of speakers, moderated panel discussions, audience q & a and much more.

We look forward to welcoming you.
