Event description

Description

E2N - 12.30 - 14.00, Wednesday 12th of April, The Venue & PA Expo (More details coming soon)

E2N are hosting a FREE networking session during the Venue & PA Expo Scotland. This is a very relaxed networking event. Initially there will be short talks from guests such as Evelyn Doyle, followed by a chance to interact with all attendees and build contacts in a causal networking format.

This is unlike most networking events as there are a number of other sessions & seminars going on throughout the day for all attendees to explore. Not to mention a fantastic exhibition to networking with industry leading suppliers and buyers from across Scotland & the UK.

Author of Evelyn: A True Story and Movie: Evelyn, Evelyn Doyle will be speaking at our event.

A loyal Maeve Binchy reader, Doyle has a life that would be worthy of a Binchy novel. As a seven-year-old in 1956, Evelyn became the subject of one of the most important Supreme Court cases in Irish history. Add to that the tantalising information her interesting career path as a weaver, a psychiatric nurse, a policewoman and the owner of a dessert manufacturing company. Doyle has a 25-year-old son Benjamin, a blues musician and composer.

Doyle knew that her story was the stuff of drama and wrote a 30-page synopsis, which she gave to a friend in the BBC.

One night, while she was watching her favourite programme, Star Trek Voyager, Doyle got a call from someone calling himself Pierce Brosnan and nearly hung up on him, assuming it was a hoax call. Brosnan visited Doyle for dinner at her home in Scotland and convinced her that his portrayal of her beloved father, who died from asbestos-related lung cancer in 1986 at the age of 62, would not show him as a saint, but as the man he really was. "As handsome as a film star, but volatile, with a trigger temper," says Doyle.

Once the film, which features Brosnan and Julianne Margolis, was underway, it was time for Doyle to sit down and write the book. Certain passages were more difficult than others.

There will be a short questions and answer segment following Evelyn's talk if you are intrigued or have any thoughts regarding her experience and progression.

The Venue and PA Expo, has consistently delivered show stopping exhibitions featuring the very best products & services, world class content and the industry’s leading keynote speakers. Visitors to the event represent agencies and PCO's, corporate companies, associations and exhibition/event organisers. This makes it the ideal event for anyone involved in the events industry, be it that they are just starting out or already established.

Past events have seen hordes of attendees, hosted buyers and exhibitors gracing the event to gain direct contact with industry leaders. As the events marketplace continues to strive, it is imperative that there is representation of this via a dedicated large scale exhibition in Scotland.
