The latest digital edition of Business & Finance was launched by the Business & Finance Media Group on Monday, October 12th. As Managing Editor, Sarah Freeman, writes: “It has been a tumultuous few months since our last issue in June when we dedicated the magazine to showcasing the innovation and incredible efforts the business community was making to reboot the economy after months of lockdown.
“The success of Business & Finance Media Group’s virtual Business Show in September was testament to the hard work going on around the country. The summit garnered extensive coverage and engagement, trending on Twitter with both national and international audiences. With 1,300 registered attendees, 700 networking connections, 50+ news articles, 80 speakers, 24 speaking sessions and 22 exhibitors, it was a testament to the energy and positivity of business leaders across the country and beyond.
“Since then, businesses have continued to adapt their modus operandi. With increased digital transformation, new modes of communication and an acceptance that hybrid workforces are here to stay, we’d like to recognise the herculean endeavours made in order to sustain businesses and keep people in employment, all while working with the restrictions imposed to ensure survival of companies.”
The latest issue, Volume 57, No. 2, offers narratives of ingenuity with our cover story, ‘Future of Work: Workforce Evolution.’ Increased digitisation has created questions regarding the future of work. David Monaghan, Junior Editor of Business & Finance, speaks to key business leaders, including Sean Davis, Regional Director for Enterprise Ireland North America, Daniel Chait, CEO and co-founder of Greenhouse, Dermot McArdle, Head of Business Markets for Electric Ireland, and more, about their recent learnings to find some answers.
The magazine also showcases a selection of Irish companies that are thriving in the USA, and explores what lies beyond the horizon in 2021. Also featured in this issue is an interview with NASA Datanaut and reigning Miss Universe Ireland, Fig O’Reilly. Business & Finance Junior Editor David Monaghan speaks to her about her life, career, working for NASA, and the need for greater diversity in STEM.
Also highlighted is the second Business Show, where the latest in thought-leadership for the workforce evolution is detailed. Ian Hyland, President & Publisher of the Business & Finance Media Group, remembers founding editor of Business & Finance, Nicholas Leonard, who passed away earlier this year, and guest contributors ponder the future of Europe, how cash will survive in a post-pandemic world, and questions surrounding emerging health-tech.
