Organisers said that the key topics which will be covered at the event range from leadership to innovation in product, service and process and thought leadership in health and wellness. Over the two-day event the conference is expected to draw approximately 300-400 from the global Irish Diaspora.
A new and innovative publication authored by network members will debut at this year’s event. The Irish Executive Press’ “Best Practices Vol. 1” will cover marketing, talent management, e-tendering, business start-ups, implementing cloud computing and innovation.
On Thursday 27th there will be

Attendees will also have an opportunity to network and meet with experts from all areas of business from Ireland and across the world.
Speaking about the event, John G Keogh (Irish Executive Network’s founder and President) said:
“Ireland is facing some tough challenges and we are very excited to have such a diverse and talented global network of experts and volunteers committed to sharing ideas and driving innovation and growth in Ireland. The summit extends from thousands of online conversations, and in Galway we continue this dialogue in person to deepen our networking and collaborate on Ireland’s economic recovery.”
In addition to participating in the conference, delegates will have the opportunity to gain first hand experience using new products, services and solutions including the innovative Irish Executives TV (IETV), an exciting video collaboration platform.
