Beyond Brexit: Networking through the storm
Arguably Ireland’s most effective networker, renowned international speaker Kingsley Aikins CBE, was welcomed to Belfast as keynote speaker for Davy Northern Ireland’s third annual conference.
Under the theme ‘Beyond Brexit: Networking through a storm’, this year’s event also included a high-powered Brexit panel discussion which included EY chief economist Neil Gibson and Alan Werlau, head of investment strategy at Davy.
Aikins, former chair of multi-million euro lending platform Linked Finance and former president and CEO of the Worldwide Ireland Funds – an organisation that has raised $700 million for local projects – provided delegates with a masterclass on how effective networking could be used to build up business and personal strength to help ride out Brexit’s storm.
Awarded a CBE for his work on British-Irish relations and building on his skills and experience, Aikins has run workshops and presentations for some of the world’s leading companies such as Google, LinkedIn, Accenture, Deloitte, Intel, KPMG, PwC and a number of leading law firms in Ireland and elsewhere.
