Irish Executives is a 7,000 member virtual network on LinkedIn, the social media site for business people. Since its inception in 2008 by Galway-man John Keogh, a range of online comments debating the business affairs of Ireland has stretched from Ballsbridge to Bangkok and back again. This conversation is now moving from the virtual to reality with IrelandONE to IrelandWON, a gathering of Irish business people from home and abroad, in Galway at the Radisson Blu Hotel on September 15.
The inaugural Irish Executive Summit will bring together experts and Irish business people from home and abroad to learn about some of the most current and critical contributing factors to business growth. Areas such as cloud computing, social media, networking, and innovation creation will be explored through guest speakers, case studies, business exhibits, discussion panels, and practical workshops - all working together to help Irish businesses access and implement the best thinking and practice in the industry today.
Jenny Brennan is owner of Virtual Office Worx here in Mayo and is providing VA and social media support to the management team at Irish Executives. “Ireland is open for business and this summit is an example of how we can support one another to deliver the positive message of Irish Executives,” he said.
Jez Harper, technical director of Tús Nua Designs, a mobile app development business in Mayo, said: “We are honoured to be involved with the Irish Executives summit; there is so much that businesses of all sizes can do to help each other remain successful, through knowledge sharing and collaboration. From micro-enterprises to global corporations, everyone has something to offer, and things they can learn from others. As part of our contribution to the Irish Executives Summit, we will be providing an iPhone/iPad app that utilises cloud technology to each of the summit delegates.”
Be Rowland of Mayo business Mindful Productivity said: “It's encouraging to know that such high calibres of business minds are willing to share their knowledge with micro businesses such as myself. I'm looking forward to listening, not only to their insights, but also to have the opportunity to mix and network with so many other entrepreneurs. It makes for a unique and timely event for me and one that I am looking forward to a lot.”
