Last Thursday night at the Merrion Hotel saw Business & Finance host The Principals Club. Niall FitzGerald KBE was the honouree for the night where he highlighted “a crisis of leadership”.

The event saw the gathering of the some of the elites of Irish business and among them were former Taoiseach Enda Kenny, former Ireland rugby captain Keith Wood and the All Blacks’ top rugby union try scorer of all time, Doug Howlett.

In his address to the attendees, Niall FitzGerald said, “Social responsibility has to become a core value of the business, a central tenet that affects the way it works.

“When companies invest for the long term in the productive capacity of the economy, they can fuel a virtuous, stabilising circle of economic activity.”
