Ex-Ryder Cup coach at Business Summit
The European Ryder Cup team's first-ever psychological-performance coach is to highlight the importance of a "growth mindset" in future-proofing Irish businesses at an upcoming summit.
Jamil Qureshi, who has previously worked with a host of Premier League footballers, is one of a range of top speakers at the All-Ireland Business Summit at Croke Park on Thursday.
His talk will centre around how mindset is key to exceeding business expectations and tackling what the future holds. "To create success, we need to future-proof, and that starts in the mind. We need to be able to change what we believe to be true so that we can create new possibilities," he said.
"Future relevancy is not about playing it safe or maintaining the course. It is about seizing opportunity and having a growth mindset. You can't trust the future to anyone who champions the past. Only with a growth mindset can we create clear blue waters between ourselves and our competitors."
Qureshi said that businesses need to create a culture that "reflects the right attitude".
He will join a panel of leading speakers at the summit, including entreprenuer Pat Phelan, and Anna May McHugh, managing director of the National Ploughing Association.
The theme for this year's summit is Scaling For Success, and more than 1,000 people are expected to attend.
Every year at the summit, businesses share knowledge and go on to co-operate in a series of successful commercial partnerships.
"Participation is the key to the summit. Delegates share their story, meet other inspirational individuals and companies and expand their network," said All-Ireland Business Foundation chief executive Elaine Carroll.
"The networking and collaboration element of the summit has led to the successful establishment of the All-Ireland Business Foundation, which has just accredited its 300th All-Star company."
The Sunday Independent and Irish Independent are media partners to the event.
