Our National Innovation Conference is IRDG’s flagship event of the year, and this year’s event is set to be the biggest yet with Leadership, Creativity in Business, and Innovation as core themes. We will be welcoming over 300 of the country’s top business people to the Lyrath Estate, Kilkenny on 23rd October, for a fantastic opportunity to hear from a unique mix of national and international leaders of distinction whilst enjoying some valuable networking.
To inspire our guests, we are thrilled to welcome the very eminent Professor Gareth Jones, a renowned global thought-leader and business advisor, whose work focuses on organisations where creativity is a source of competitive strength. His question ‘Why should anyone be led by you?’ will look at themes such as authentic leadership, the tight labour market and the need to build organisations which are beacons for talent, innovation and engagement.
Holly O’Driscoll, Innovation Strategist and Global Design Thinking Leader with Proctor & Gamble USA, a lady with exceptional credentials, will also share her insights and international experience on the day. Holly will talk about the importance of being shamelessly human-centred in all that we do, and leveraging a design thinking mindset to create conditions for innovators to thrive.
