Why Evolve?

Recognising that although we can often be our own harshest critic, Evolve is passionate about encouraging women to take some time out for themselves, guilt free.


Championed by the Evolve family, we have created a series of interactive and engaging events across Ireland focusing on four key platforms that we feel are most relevant for women today: Health and Wellbeing, Personal Leadership, Inspire and Self Evolve.


Our purpose is simple… we want to create a community for women to come together where they feel supported, engaged and inspired; leaving with a little more confidence, self-belief, a new tip, lesson or skill and a realisation that their best is yet to come…

Founder - Mairead Mackle

"I founded Evolve as I believe that the greatest gift we can give to the people we care about is a healthy & happy YOU. Evolve encourages you to focus on your physical and mental health, lead yourself in a new direction and gain inspiration from hearing the inspirational stories of others.

Recharging your body and your mind will help you to be more creative & confident in all areas of your life. 

"Empowering women to be women of power"


Meet the Evolve Team 

The inspiring women who believe that as women we are stronger together
