Commenting on her selection as highly commended, Sarah Jane said:
“I’m incredibly honored to be recognised for my hard work bringing together such a successful event in Wexford. The Digital Picnic was an entirely new conference concept that aimed to educate and empower marketers and business owners to remain relevant in the ever-changing world of social and digital. I’m thrilled to be able to represent the digital marketing industry as a female Entrepreneur and show others the possibilities of digital transformation.
Given the uncertainty facing many public events around the world due to the progression of Covid-19, it has been this year that in the interest of attendees safety we will instead hold a 2-day virtual conference on May 11-12. This positive new development is allowing attendees to participate from wherever they are in the world. It also shows the power of digital transformation and I am very excited to be one of the first conferences in Ireland to take this step forward.”
