Ursuline Sligo Visits the Web Summit

Web Summit 2015

This year, Ireland had the honour of hosting the prestigious ‘Web Summit 2015. In four years, the web summit has grown from 400 attendees to ever 22,000 from more than 110 countries. It’s been called “the best technology conference on the planet”.

On Tuesday the 3rd of November, 40 students from 1st year and Transition Year in Ursuline College Sligo had the pleasure of attending the event. They arrived at the RDS just before the start of the innovative conference.  As the crowd settled down, a countdown was initiated.

Throughout the evening, speakers touched on a variety of subjects, from curing cancer to stamping out bullying in schools. Each speaker had one thing in common: they all believed that their business idea came from a personal belief and passion.

The first speaker, Riley Ennis, a young man from America told his poignant story of how his sister fell ill with cancer. He told the audience how he combined his three obsessions of marine, Immunity and cancer to pursue all avenues to find a cure. Scott Harrison told them how he gave up all his wealth to devote his life to helping third world countries receive basic clean water. The students also heard of two primary school girls Chloe and Caitlyn, who devised a wristband connected to an app entitled ‘Bullybug’ which alerted teachers if someone was being bullied.  All through the evening’s talks, the students were encouraged to ‘Prove their Passion’. 

it was a very inspirational conference that touched and impressed all the students attending. The evening was truly informative and hopefully when the event is back in Dublin in the future, there will be an Ursuline College student on the stage inspiring others.
