Sport for Business is hosting a high profile Business Breakfast Briefing in Dublin this morning alongside partners Sigmar Recruitment, Correlate and ThinkTasc. The theme is on how businesses can use the many facets of sport to improve their ability to attract and retain talented staff.
John Hennessey-Niland, Charges d’Affaires at the US Embassy in Dublin will talk on the power of sport in CSR initiatives, followed by Rob Hartnett of Sport for Business on how sport can be used to engage effectively with staff in three key areas, then Omar Hassanein will look at how IRUPA has built transition programmes for its members and Pamela Gilpin of ThinkTasc on the use of sport in management programmes.
We will also be joined by an illustrious panel of Bernard Brogan, Reggie Corrigan and Richard Sadlier to hear first hand how closely the two sides of sport and business are related and can be of benefit.
There is a high profile audience for the event with CEO’s and Senior Directors from a host of Ireland’s top companies including O2, PwC, BDO, Eircom, VHI Healthcare, Paypal and Twitter as well as Barry O’Brien CEO of the National Sports Campus Development Authority, John Treacy of the Irish Sports Council and Senator Eamon Coghlan.
We will carry a report on Friday morning of some of the themes to emerge and look forward to seeing many friends of Sport for Business at this exciting and very relevant event.
