Reinvention the theme at IMI National Management Conference
Former Donegal football manager Jim McGuinness, now a performance consultant to Glasgow Celtic football club, was among the thought leaders sharing their insights at the IMI National Management Conference yesterday.
The theme of the think-in was 'Reinventing Organisations - Rethinking Leadership.'
That theme resonated with Richard Moat, chief executive of Eir, the former Eircom.
"As Ireland's largest telecommunications company, over the course of the last three years, we have gone to great lengths to change how we operate.
"We have already invested €1bn, which is part of a total €2.5bn investment we plan on making," Mr Moat said.
"Last month we changed our name to Eir, in what was one of the biggest rebrands in the last two decades.
"We will continue to transform, to innovate and to introduce new products and services that benefit and excite our customers," he added.
The conference heard from speakers including Yves Morieux of Boston Consulting; Sue Cox, a leadership consultant and tango dancer; and Rory Sutherland, executive creative director of OgilvyOne. Speaking at the conference opening, Simon Boucher, chief executive of the Irish Management Institute said; "The IMI is in the midst of a very exciting period and as Ireland's only globally ranked provider of customised executive education, we are perfectly poised to support the growing need for executive development in Ireland."
