SMEs outlined their stories about the relationship with the UK market

The event proved very insightful with excellent real life stories from successful senior directors from large scale multinationals and SMEs outlining their stories about the relationship with the UK market. It was a very useful session for anyone looking at growing a business to a new market and using the UK as a first step into European expansion. The conference was very interactive and allowed for plenty of networking.

The keynote speaker at the lunch was Dominick Chilcott (British Ambassador to Ireland) and he was very positive on relations between both countries at this point in history.

The event took place Thursday 30th May in Fota Island Resort, and was entitled “Winning in the UK and Beyond”. It explored all aspects of trade between the Ireland and the UK, including UK companies who have chosen to locate their business in Ireland opening up new supplier relationships.

The Conference was chaired by broadcaster, Author & MC, Anton Savage and speakers included; Hugo Mac Neill (MD Goldman Sachs), Finbar Whyte (VP & Site Director, GlaxoSmithKline), Sharon Buckley (Group Commercial Director, Musgraves) Julia Lynes (Owner, EazyCity), Steve Aiken (CEO, British Irish Chamber), Denis Kenneally.
