Maxine Mawhinney to speak at TEDxStormont

Maxine Mawhinney is not only one of the most recognisable faces of news broadcasting and journalism, she is also an extremely popular speaker and host. Her ability to interview and present are second to none, plus she is a valuable moderator and facilitator and communications/media trainer.

Maxine is Belfast born and earlier this month she returned to her hometown to host the 25th Anniversary Gala Dinner for the Integrated Education Fund (Northern Ireland) which took place at the famous Europa Hotel. The Integrated Education Fund is working to build a shared future for the children of Northern Ireland, enabling them to attend school and learn in an environment of inclusion and one which celebrates religious and cultural diversity.

In 1988, Maxine was appointed Ireland Correspondent for Sky News which meant she returned to Northern Ireland during a turbulent period in The Troubles, when diversity and inclusion were feared and answered with violence rather then celebrated. She also reported on the violence of the bombings and shootings which took place as well as the political and economic progress both north and south of the Irish border. The Integrated Education Fund is a cause which is close to not only the community’s heart but also to Maxine herself.
