Discover New Growth Strategies

Exports from Ireland are growing at a faster rate than almost anywhere else in the world. This proves that with the right strategy, your Irish-based company still has an opportunity to reach peak levels of growth.

Panel Discussion

Hays would like to invite you to a panel discussion chaired by Liam Diamond, the inward-investment partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers. Members of the panel will include Dermot O’Leary, the Chief Economist at Goodbody Stockbrokers, John Whelan, CEO of the Irish Exporters' Association (IEA) and a senior executive from a highly-successful international company which decided to establish their European headquarters in Ireland.

Topics for discussion will include:

  • How to effectively access international markets
  • Why Ireland is still a great place in which to do business
  • How to attract more of your parent company’s business to Ireland.
