The Punt: Networking worth its weight in gold
IRISH business people from around the world came together in London yesterday for the third Irish International Business Network annual conference.
Providence Resources chief Tony O'Reilly Jnr and the founder and editor-in-chief of the 'Big Issue' magazine were among those who spoke at the event designed to develop relationships and grow business.
The British ambassador to Ireland, Dominick Chilcott, was also on hand as was Denis Donovan, head of group non-core at Bank of Ireland.
The thrust of the event was all about networking, with a special gathering arranged last night to allow business chiefs to mingle.
If the economy doesn't maintain its growth momentum, at least they'll have each other.
