Yesterday, Thursday, 30th July, IoD Ireland hosted a webinar with guest speaker Professor Alan Ahearne, Economic Advisor to An Taoiseach, Director of the Whitaker Institute, and Professor of Economics at NUI Galway, as part of our Lunch Bites @ the IoD series.

Alan provided a timely and insightful up-to-date commentary on the status of the Irish economy, including a look at its challenges and opportunities. IoD Ireland members can view the briefing presentation and watch the webcast of the event on the exclusive members’ area of the website. 

Initiating the webinar, Thora Mackey, IoD COO, once again thanked IQ-EQ for their sponsorship of the series. The Lunch Bites @ the IoD event series is kindly sponsored by IQ-EQ in 2020. As part of this series, three events/webinars have already taken place this year. The previous two featured James Hickey, Former CEO, Screen Ireland (formerly the Irish Film Board), on 13th February 2020, and Mairead McGuinness MEP, First Vice President of the European Parliament, on 3rd July 2020. There are three further webinars scheduled for the autumn season.
