From social housing to VP of Walt Disney

Posted on May 30, 2018

Trish Long is the General Manager and Vice President of Disney in Ireland. She’s also worked with Oprah. How did she do it? She shares her remarkable and unplanned path with Margaret E Ward, one that began with her bargaining with her father to stay in school at age of 14. If you’ve ever beaten yourself for lacking focus or commitment in your career, Trish’s story is for you. From nightclub worker to pirate radio presenter, and from secondhand bookshop employee to director of a rape crisis centre – Trish’s road less travelled shows that it really is OK to not have it all figured out before you take that first, second or even third step. She reveals her tools of success, which include “owning fear” and being her “strong feminist” self at work.
