The Regional Insight Series is a unique series of events that present opportunities for senior business leaders and key stakeholders to come together with Ibec CEO, Danny McCoy, and Executive Director Team members to get insights, share ideas and discuss challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for businesses across the Regions.

Each event will provide insights and practical guidance that will support businesses strategic and operational decision-making to diversify and expand sustainably.

Delegates will get first-hand insights from Ibec CEO, Danny McCoy, through his engagement with government and international stakeholders, the broader geopolitical picture and the economic trends and policy developments.

At this year’s Regional Insights Series, Ibec’s Executive Director Team and member companies will  discuss the ambitious and energetic leadership that will be needed from government and business leaders to unlock the huge economic potential of shifting to sustainable growth models.

On the agenda:

  • Expert-led presentations and conversations tackling the challenges affecting business
  • Unpacking the outcomes of COP26 and the impact on business
  • Cities, urban development and design
  • Communities and connections
  • The world of work post covid – hybrid work & footfall, labour market participation, access to talent

Each event will provide insights and practical guidance that will support you to make the necessary operational, tactical and strategic decisions in order for you to diversify and expand into a sustainable business.

Ibec look forward to welcoming regional business communities, business leaders, politicians and stakeholders to the Regional Insights Series.

We encourage you to use this opportunity to connect with other local businesses and join us for a complimentary networking lunch. The events are free of charge to attend, but places are limited. We advise early reservations to avoid disappointment.
