Delighted to announce that Stephen Ferris will be joining us to share his thoughts on "Why Leadership Development is so Important".
Ulster's 4th Rugby Business Network Event kicks off on the 5 March 2014 at 5.45pm in Danske Bank, Belfast with a drinks reception hosted by the Ulster Business School.
The Rugby Business Network is a global not for profit organisation that connects business people with a passion for rugby so that they can help each other in business and in life. This event will provide structured opportunities to network and we provide speakers from the rugby and business worlds who provide a catalyst for conversations on the evening. The ethos of the events is based on a go-giver approach rather than a go-getter approach and attendees ask ‘How can I help you?’ rather than ‘What can you do for me?’
The hope is that when business people with a passion for rugby help each other they are then more likely to be able to justify investing their resources back into the rugby community and into the game we all love.
Join Willie John McBride MBE who played as a lock for Ireland and the British and Irish Lions share his thoughts on the leadership challenges facing rugby players and how business can benefit from offering support.
In 2004 Willie was named Heineken Rugby Personality of the Century by Rugby World magazine. He is a strong supporter of the Wooden Spoon Society. Scrum staff
