I am passionate about empowering women to live a vibrant, valiant midlife.

Recent events have included co-hosting The Confidence Conversation, and speaking at the World Menopause Health Day event in Dublin.

An experienced speaker and workshop facilitator, my passion for helping women go from fine to fantastic, along with my skill as a storyteller means my talks and workshops are inspiring and uplifting events that also deliver practical tools and take-aways.

Participants loved Alana’s positive and can-do attitude, and walked away from the session feeling their attendance was very worthwhile and with much food for thought." Sarah Bealin, Executive Officer, Learning and Career Development Unit, Department Enterprise, Trade and Employment

"Alana Kirk delivered two excellent webinars to LEO Dublin City Women in Business Network members in 2020 and 2021, 'How to Manage your Life and your Business" and "Money Mindset for Women".  Both webinars were well structured and full of motivational insights and practical tips relevant to the audience.  Alana brought a fun and empathetic style to the webinars that ensured that participants enjoyed the sessions while picking up valuable tips.Pauline Logan, Coordinator, LEO Dublin City Women in Business Network

Alana's talk on money mindset gives a whole new perspective to the relationship we, as women, have with money as well as a ton of practical tips on how to improve that relationship and grow our financial freedom. Our group took away so much value and we would highly recommend Alana.
