Description

An Invitation to Lead with Love and Courage in 2019.


This Castlewellen Giant Redwood is a single tree;.despite having 19 trunks it stands together as one tree. Communities are made up of people with many varied interests and views, how do we stand together in turbulent times?

The Sheehy Skeffington school invites you to join us for a conversation with Ruairi McKiernan. If 2019 is the year you want to be be part of a new style of leadership, one rooted in community and reaching out and reaching up, come to this event.

At a time when we are experiencing the impact of climate change on the global level, and on the local level, the looming ‘Brexit’ which is creating significant anxiety and division at a time when we have no NI assembly, it seems appropriate to start 2019 with a conversation about how we can contribute to a just and sustainable peace through personal leadership, courage, creativity and love.

The conversation will be led by Ruairi McKiernan, an award-winning social innovator, campaigner, consultant, writer and speaker who was recently selected as one of the top 10 people leading social change in Ireland by global social entrepreneurs organisation Ashoka. He is a Fulbright scholar, a Presidential appointee to Ireland's Council of State and a recipient of numerous awards, including a Social Entrepreneurs Ireland award. Ruairí is a business graduate with almost 20 years experience in the areas of social innovation and community development. This includes his work as founder of the pioneering SpunOut.ie youth organisation, which he started at the age of 25 and led for eight years as CEO, raising millions of euro, building a nationwide team of staff and volunteers, and championing young people's wellbeing across society. His chart-topping Love and Courage podcast features inspiration global voices for change and he is a regular contributor to the national media on health and social issues. A powerful and passionate TEDx speaker, Ruairí reaches thousands each year through his talks and workshops in schools, colleges, workplaces and at conferences in Ireland and internationally. His work explores areas that include leadership, wellbeing, mental health, mindfulness and meditation, active citizenship and civic engagement, corporate social responsibility, and social innovation.This event is open to all individuals and anyone who is in a position of leadership and wishes to explore their role.
