Arts Graduate, Businesswoman, Entrepreneur: a personal experience & future plans

Interested in learning how an Arts degree can lead to a successful international career? Then come and meet the inspirational UCC graduate Susan O’Brien, Founder/CEO of Smigin travel app.

Smigin was born out of Susan’s experience of living and working in four non-English speaking countries. A graduate of UCC, Susan speaks 6 languages, and has 15 years of proven experience in building unique product solutions, and driving international sales and business development. Susan has had executive roles in US-based public and private companies, and has worked directly with some of Ireland’s most successful entrepreneurs, including Denis O’Brien (Digicel Group). Susan will visit UCC to speak about how she used her Arts degree to develop a successful international career.
