The Swell Summit took place on January 31st in Sligo Airport.
How to articulate the feeling of positivity from yesterday? We might just have to do a little dance.
Sligo’s chest has definitely puffed out a little from our conference in an airport beside the sea. Hopefully this is just the beginning and anybody who was there will get to say “I was at the first Swell Summit”. Read More
There are plenty of serious talks at the Swell Summit. At lunchtime we will have some nice grub and plenty of opportunities for you to just hang out.
However, just in case you fancied learning something new, we have a few lunchtime workshops on offer. They’re also a nice filler if you don’t like the networking thing.
Each workshop will last 10-15 minutes and you can sign-up on Saturday morning for them. Read More
Are Swell Summit tickets still available?
No: we are completely oversubscribed and have 70+ waitlisters. At this stage we are advising people who don’t have a ticket that your best option is to sign-up for our newsletter for further 2015 Swell events. Do not come to the airport on Saturday if you don’t have a confirmed ticket via Eventbrite.
Can I drop-in for a few sessions even if I don’t have a ticket?
Eh no. Sorry. Read More
You may have noticed from our Schedule that we have a number of 5*5 slots?
In each of the Web, Creative and Start-up streams we have a 5*5 session where 5 attendees get 5 minutes each to pitch an idea, plug your business or just go on a rant.
We are now seeking applications from attendees for these 15 slots. It doesn’t have to be a TED Talk so don’t worry about a slick presentation. Don’t miss this opportunity to showcase yourself to a very supportive and influential audience.
Want in? Email your 5*5 proposal in 100 words or less to email@example.com before next Wednesday, 21 January.

Video is the best medium if you want to get your business and/or product showcased in its strongest light. A 90-second promo video on your homepage will attract strong traffic to your site and give you the opportunity to show your potential clients exactly what you do/create.
The Connect Supper Club took place on May 29th in Shells Café. Lots of smiley faces on a very beautiful summer’s evening.
Once again, we are grateful to our Video Partners, Pink Lime Videos for this great short video they have put together.
