Irish Executives Global Summit 2012
IrelandONE to IrelandWON The Journey Ahead

After a very successful inaugural event in September 2011, the 2012 Irish Executives Global Summit continues the online conversations in person to help drive tangible growth for the Irish economy by focussing on innovation and leadership.

Attendees will have the opportunity to hear and learn from experts on:

  • Proven growth strategies to boost small, medium and large Irish businesses in domestic and foreign markets
  • Why innovation in process, product and service is critical to success and survival
  • Why leadership development is more important now to Irish businesses than even before
  • How adopting global best practices across a range of core business areas will enable sustained growth

About the Irish Executives Global Summit
The Summit is the result of thousands of conversations on the Irish Executives Network. Formed on LinkedIn in 2008 at that time when people and businesses first realised the extreme pressures exerted on the global economic climate. The Irish Executives Network responded to this pressure with a commitment to sharing ideas, expertise and know-how, which exists among the Irish Diaspora both at home and abroad. As the economic pressure increases, so too does the Irish Executive Network's membership and activity. Since the 2011 Summit, the Network has more than doubled from 7,000 to 16,000 members, comprising of business people from within Ireland (72%) and around the world (28%).

Galway, the beautiful City of the Tribes will again host the annual summit. Starting on September 26th from 8pm to 11pm with a "meet the speakers" and "meet the authors" networking event and a full day conference on September 27th starting at 8am. Book early as tickets are limited.
