Is your business team smarter than the journalist who writes about them? Almost certainly.

But the annual chance to prove it returns with the launch of the Business Journalists Association of Ireland (BJAI)'s 17th annual Corporate Challenge quiz, in aid of Dublin Simon Community.

For the first time the event will take place at the Clayton Hotel, Burlington Road, Dublin 4, on Tuesday, May 30.

RTE's Bryan Dobson returns as quizmaster and Mr Justice Peter Kelly, President of the High Court, will adjudicate on the night - and the judge's decisions will be final.

William Fry, DAA and Eir have signed up as title sponsors to support the event with the Reputations Agency donating its services for the sixth consecutive year.

The Corporate Challenge is open to all companies interested in helping raise funds for Dublin Simon Community, who provide services and support to those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

The Corporate Challenge attracts entries from the biggest names in Irish industry, law and PR, along with the cream of Irish business journalism.

Since the annual event began it has raised close to €500,000 for the Dublin Simon Community.

To enter the challenge, email dodonovan@independent.ie, or catherine@thereputations- agency.ie. A corporate table of four costs €1,000, with a BJAI journalist joining each team.

Justyna Drogomirecka, Corporate Fundraising Manager, Dublin Simon Community said: "The funds raised on the night help us to provide vital services to those who rely on us each day.

"Through these donations, combined with the commitment of the business community and the business journalists, we are able to continue to address homelessness in Dublin, Kildare, Wicklow and Meath." Last year's winner was Edelman PR.
