Liam Redmond- Certified Proud
In this episode Jean chats with Liam Redmond, Co-founder of Certified Proud Certified Proud's goal is simple We want everyone to be able to book a hotel, order a meal, start a new job or seek assistance in a shop and know that they will be treated with respect. We aim to create a collective of safe spaces so that members of the LGBTQ+ community can live a life free from discrimination and unease. Proud removes the unknown so you can travel, work and live with confidence. We heard countless stories from people who have experienced difficulties in public and in work because of their particular orientation or identity. From GPs refusing treatment to hotels or guesthouses only offering twin beds to same-sex couples instead of doubles, prejudice remains a real fear for LGBTQ+ people in even the most mundane activities. So, this is where we step in. If an organisation is listed as a member of Certified Proud, you will know that you are amongst friends even before you have stepped through the door!

Kapil Khanna and the All Ireland Business Foundation
In this episode Jean chats with Kapil Khanna to chat about his journey from India to Ireland and how all contributed to the All Ireland Business Foundation Originally from Delhi in India, fate brought me to Ireland in 2009 (I followed my heart!) where I’m now raising my family & making a positive impact for 100's of Irish businesses.  Immigrating to a country in the depths of a recession was not an easy start for anyone's career. The only person I knew at that time was my wife.  My past work exp with fortune 500 MNC's, my values (& a bit of luck) helped me to re-start my career in Ireland.  Quick fact: My first position in Ireland was an unpaid internship as a management consultant at Galway (I commuted daily from Dub-Gal!).  Those initial struggles & failures given me a different perspective of business/life & made me the person I am today.  Over the last 12 years, I devoted myself to the study of business and entrepreneurship.   Fast forward to 2020, I am fortunate to be able to mentor & support over 400 Irish businesses in gaining strategic clarity & moving their business forward.  My belief is that its important to leave a legacy and build something that is greater than oneself.  In 2013, I left my job and started my entrepreneurial journey with Elaine Carroll. We started with a modest 250 delegates at the inaugural All-Ireland Business Summit at Croke Park in 2014. Fast forward to 2019, we welcomed more than 900 business leaders!  Under the guidance of our board, we officially launched The All-Ireland Business Foundation (AIBF). The AIBF is an independent national accreditation body that identifies, acknowledges and supports the country’s most ambitious and visionary business leaders.  As the awarding body for Business All-Star Accreditation Quality Mark🏅, it identifies and recognises best-in-class Irish businesses that deserve recognition for their trust and customer-centricity. Check out ☆  Since 2014, over 3,000 companies have participated in our initiatives. The Foundation also hosts the annual All-Ireland Summit and quarterly forums while promoting peer-learning and collaboration among it’s accredited companies.  With over 400 accredited companies in the TRIBE- we are on a mission of empowering entrepreneurs to realise their ambitions and seize the opportunities Ireland offers.
