The Irish Business Network Half Day Seminar

Since it’s initiation back in 2014, the half day seminar has become an integral part of the IBN calendar. The seminar features many seasoned executives sharing first hand business knowledge which allows Irish business professionals in Dubai to learn from their experiences.

The theme of this year’s event was “Business As Usual Or Shifting Sands” which attracted the largest audience we have had to date. We were joined by speakers from a wide range of industries including the new Ambassador to the UAE Paul Kavanagh, Gerald Lawless Chairman of the World Travel & Tourism Council, Colm Mc Loughlin Executive Vice Chairman & CEO at Dubai Duty Free, Christoph Mueller Chief Digital & Innovation Officer at Emirates Airlines, Lady Chanelle Mc Coy Director of Chanelle Medical & RTE’s Dragon’s Den and many other experienced business professionals.

The IBN Seminar is aimed at a wide demographic including the Young Business Network, SME’s and our larger Corporate Members. Much effort is placed on choosing speakers who can offer the best advice to our members on all aspects of business. The seminar offers the opportunity for our members to network among senior industry professional and gain experience and knowledge in many areas of business.

Topics covered at this year’s event included the much anticipated 2020 Dubai World Expo, Travel & Tourism, Digital Transformation, Cyber Security and a UAE Economy Overview. We could not host such events without the support of our sponsors. Thankfully this year we were joined by a host of sponsors both from the UAE and Ireland including The K Club, Kildare Village, Ornua, Emirates, Dubai Duty Free Jumeirah, Executive Expatriate Relocations and Mc Gettigan’s.
