  • - by Best of Belfast

    Emer Maguire is a multi-talented comedic, musical, public-speaking, broadcasting, science communicating legend from Strabane, Northern Ireland. 

    She's given multiple TEDx Talks, won countless awards for her work in radio and has just come back from a sell-out run at the Edinborough Fringe festival. 

    Oh yeah, and she's also a fully qualified speech therapist #sidehustle 

    In today's episode we talk all about:

    • How she overcame her fear of public speaking

    • Why she grew to love science later in life

    • The business-side of creativity

    • And her favourite joke (omg plz listen to this bit) 

    Our conversation with Emer is super-fun and light-hearted yet jam-packed full of entrepreneurial wisdom. 

    (And plenty of Strabane-infused craic along the way).
