  • About the Event

  • What’s on at Zeminar?
    While the career aspect will be covered, it will represent just 1 of 9 designated zones, setting Zeminar apart from the traditional careers fair. According to research conducted by Headstrong.ie, anxiety, stress, sleep issues, cyberbullying and isolation are some of the difficulties hindering academic and personal growth today. These factors in conjunction with fast-moving technology, academic pressures, unhealthy diets and ever-changing career options present an increasingly complex and challenging environment for young people to navigate.
  • Who will attend?
    Zeminar will be the most inclusive event for the young people of Ireland, catering for up to 20,000 attendees and their teachers/mentors. There will be professionals and experts exhibiting and hosting workshops, showcasing their message in interactive ways. Their mandate will be to engage attendees and transfer impactful skills that can be taken away by students in order to facilitate more satisfying and productive lives.
  • Teachers
    Teachers will also have the opportunity to access an entire range of resources either by participating in the main event or at the dedicated Teachers Lounge, where complimentary refreshments will be served.
  • Why Attend Our Event
    According to leading researchers, anxiety, stress, sleep issues, cyberbullying and isolation are some of the difficulties hindering academic and personal growth today. These factors in conjunction with fast-moving technology, academic pressures, unhealthy diets and ever-changing career options present an increasingly complex and challenging environment for young people to navigate. Zeminar will step beyond the classroom, lecture theatre or workplace and explore the biggest social issues that have the potential to disrupt academic and personal growth. The philosophy of the event is “A Life Changing Day” and each speaker, exhibitor, professional and workshop host will be tasked to reflect this in every interaction with our attendees. With this in mind we expect attendees to have their imagination captivated, their horizons broadened, their network expanded and all in one very memorable day.
  • How is the day structured?
    The conference will run over three days with students attending one day each. The venue will be broken into 9 designated zones where teachers and students can access resources at different times of the day in a safe and educational environment.
  • What students will take from this event?
    The philosophy of the event is “A Life Changing Day” and each speaker, exhibitor, professional and workshop host will be tasked to reflect this in every interaction with our attendees. With this in mind we expect students to learn valuable information to help them through life’s journey. We expect attendees to have their imagination captivated, their horizons broadened, their network expanded and the day to be one they will never forget.

Emily Duffy is a young lady in a hurry - not to make money like many of her contemporaries, but to make an impact.

Back in 2014 Emily was struck by the high levels of homelessness in Ireland and knew she wanted to make a difference but what she didn’t realise was how long it would take. In second year Emily and her friends held a fundraising event for Novas Initiative, a homeless charity in Limerick. While planning the fundraiser Emily began researching homelessness and realised that it was a much bigger problem in Ireland than they had ever imagined, with statistics from Focus Ireland saying there was over 5,000 people homeless in Ireland at any one point. She decided to focus on people sleeping rough on the streets and went on to invent the Duffily Bag, a sleeping bag for homeless people who are sleeping on the streets that protects them from many different things like the rain, attacks from the public and being set on fire to name a few.

Since then she has partnered with an organisation called the Mendicity Institute which provide services for homeless people. They currently employ up to 20 homeless people to make the Duffily Bags and the bags are being used around Ireland on the streets and in emergency accommodation. The bags are also being used by the refugees who were displaced from the Jungle Refugee camp in France.

Emily has really shown the power of what a simple idea can accomplish and in the process discovered a huge passion for social entrepreneurship, something she didn’t even know existed when this project started.

What can you say about Mattress Mick that hasn't already been said.....well, this - he's one of the nicest people you'll ever meet and was an absolute star at Zeminar 2017 in the RDS. It was like having royalty in the house when he waltzed through the doors and the crowd went suitably wild.

His message is simple but no less impactful - I failed but I'm not a failure. In this short talk he recounts his fall from the top of the retail furniture industry and how he with the help of Paul Kelly, his alter ego and a massive dose of humility has sprung right back to the top!
