AIB Looking to Spark Future Potential

Dublin GAA’s Brian Howard will be part of a Sports Panel at next week’s AIB Future Sparks Festival in the RDS.

He will be talking alongside Ireland Hockey international Mitch Darling, CEO of the Federation of Irish Sport Mary O’Connor, and former Irish Rugby International turned prime time TV dancer and businessman Peter Stringer at the event aimed at senior level students of whom 7,500 are expected to attend.

The Festival is into its second year and will bring together business leaders and young entrepreneurs to ‘inspire students and show them the power of their potential.’

On other panels, from the world of music, Irish-Sierra Leonean singer Loah, who has recently collaborated with Hozier, is carving out an impressive international solo career following a change in direction from her previous career as a qualified pharmacist.

Peter Cosgrove, a future of work expert and author of ‘Fun Unplugged’ will also be speaking at the event.

We are looking to assemble the best in business to inspire and spark conversation with students, through inspirational talks and panel discussions featuring trailblazers in business and thought leaders from a broad range of industries and disciplines,” said Paul Fisher, Head of Marketing, Consumer and Sponsorship in AIB.

“Once again, the AIB Future Sparks Festival promises to provide motivation and insight to help students to achieve their dreams in the future.”

“Ireland is home to so many successful young innovators and trailblazers, and we’re excited to present a sports panel amongst others that reflects this. The hope is that we can inspire the next generation to reach their potential.”
