What's good for society is good for business, more than 200 business leaders, sports stars and philanthropists were told at the University of Limerick President's Dinner 2014.
Niall Fitzgerald, former chairman and chief executive of Unilever, delivered the keynote speech at Adare Manor.
"I believe more and more companies understand that attending to their own business means also attending to the needs of society... If we betray their trust as citizens, we forfeit the loyalty of consumers," he said.
UL president Don Barry said that the university's €224m Capital Development Plan would aim to deliver 12 major infrastructure projects including a new Clinical Education Research building at University Hospital Limerick, Phase 2 of the Glucksman Library and the development of a City Centre Campus, and would be key to UL's commitment to the 'Limerick 2030 Plan'.
