PeopleSource “Distinguished Speakers”

Wednesday 6th September 2017
Patrick Coveney Event

We had a great morning on Wednesday 6th September at the second of our Distinguished Speaker business breakfasts. Held again in the Intercontinental, it was an early start. From 7.30am people arrived promptly to maximise the networking opportunity before the main event. The room was buzzing with new contacts being made and old acquaintances met.

By 8am everyone was seated (with a few extras standing!) and for the next 50 minutes Patrick Coveney, CEO Greencore very generously gave his time, insights and views on a full range of topics from Brexit to President Trump to Leadership and the benefits of Positive Discrimination.

The feedback was plentiful and positive…

‘Just a note to say thanks for inviting me to the breakfast session this morning. It was great to hear from Patrick and a lot of what he said resonated with me.’

‘Many thanks for the invite for this morning. It was great to gain an insight into Patrick’s career and his views on the number of topics you raised. Insightful research and great hosting.’

‘Thanks so much for the invitation to what was a fascinating session with Patrick Coveney!’

Patrick Coveney seemed to have enjoyed it too with this tweet…

Our inaugural ‘Distinguished Speakers’ event was held at the Intercontinental Hotel in Dublin on 14th September 2016. It was a full house, thanks to the wonderful Patrick Kennedy who regaled the audience with highlights from his career to date and the benefits of taking calculated risks.
