Biggest ever Cork Chamber Annual Dinner Celebrated Excellence in Cork
Almost 1000 people from Cork’s business community gathered to network and connect with their peers for the biggest ever Cork Chamber Annual Dinner to Celebrate Excellence in City Hall Cork, on Friday the 6th of February. The dinner was attended by Ken Murphy (Director) and Audrey McSweeney (Consultant) CareerWise Recruitment.
Cork Chamber President, Gillian Keating, speaking at the Cork Chamber Annual Dinner celebrated excellence from across the region focusing not on advances in technology or economic development but on the people who are driving the region and placing Cork on the world map. She exemplified this by focusing on the stories of mathematician, George Boole, world renowned furniture designer, Joseph Walsh, Radisens Diagnostics CEO, Jerry O’Brien and winners of the global science research competition at the 2014 Google Science Fair Ciara Judge, Emer Hickey and Sophie Healy-Thow.
The key message of the evening was that Cork is successfully competing and exerting influence on a global scale and we require continued investment in productivity, innovation, education, skills, research and new technologies to facilitate and enable the vision and ambition that is driving the people of Cork.
