The Business Show has today announced key speakers and partners for its webinar with Minister for Finance and Irish Business Leaders
The Business Show, a programme of engagements including webinars, online content, and a 1 day virtual event on 10th September, is aimed at creating a sustained and consistent engagement between leading organisations, their leadership and the Irish business community.
Themed ‘Rebooting Ireland’, The Business Show will offer stories of resilience through turbulent times, shape strategies for success in the future and provide a global platform for businesses and leaders to share their stories on the next steps for growth in the post covid era.
Living with both a hard Brexit and the Covid virus will be the challenge of this generation of business leaders in the medium term. As the global economy resumes are we returning to a business as normal or new economic order? Either way resilience and optimism will be the characteristics of leadership most required.
The first monthly webinar in The Business Show’s series of engagements will take place on Tuesday 16th June at 10am GMT +1. It will be centered on the topic ‘In the Eye of The Storm: Ensuring Business Resilience to move from Surviving to Thriving,’ and will feature speakers Minister for Finance & Public Expenditure and Reform Paschal Donohoe TD, Danny McCoy, CEO of Ibec, Sarah Clarke, CEO of Intuition North America, and Mark Little, co-founder and CEO of Kinzen. This first online engagement will be hosted by Sarah Freeman, Managing Editor of Business & Finance Media Group.
Danny McCoy said: “Living with both a hard Brexit and the Covid virus will be the challenge of this generation of business leaders in the medium term.
