County Tipperary Chamber President’s Award:
The President’s Award is an opportunity to honour an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to enterprise, innovation and business life in County Tipperary and beyond. The recipient will be a business leader of national and international renown and influence, an innovator and strategic role-model for business creation and growth over an extended period of time. As a benchmark of outstanding success, the President’s Award will recognise the accomplishment and contribution of that business leader while offering their example as an inspiration to all members of Tipperary’s thriving business communities.
Our Innovation and Education partner, LIT Tipperary, sponsored the Presidential Award for
outstanding Achievement - the winner was Tipperary fashion designer Louise Kennedy.
Chamber President, TJ Kinsella, described Louise as the 'queen of Irish fashion'. The Thurles native has been at the top of the Irish and international fashion trade for thirty five years. She has designed for presidents and royalty, designed the Aer Lingus uniforms and has been recognised with a special stamp by An Post.
She said she was absolutely thrilled to win the award and to be honoured by the Tipperary business community.“Wherever I go in the world, I am always Tipperary first”, she told the audience of over 250 at the gathering.
