Northern Ireland Football Manager
Michael O'Neill is a national hero, having guided the Northern Ireland football team to its first major tournament in 30 years. Having masterminded qualification for the Euro 2016 finals in France, Michael and his team went on to inspire and enthral the nation by qualifying for the last 16 of the tournament. This was an incredible transformation for a team that, just three years before, was ranked 89th in the world and was in the midst of a 12 match winless run. Michael will reflect on this journey and will share some of the management and leadership lessons that he has learned along the way.
Hannah O’Reilly and Elaine Lavery
Co-Founders of Improper Butter
In 2013 Hannah O'Reilly, from Enniskillen, and Elaine Lavery, from Dublin, developed Improper Butter, a new way of branding, packaging and promoting Irish butter. Production started in their home kitchen with sales at farmer’s markets but now the award-winning product is manufactured in 90,000 sq ft of state of the art premises and is supplied throughout Ireland, as well as the UK and the Middle East, in outlets such as Supervalu, Waitrose, Avoca and Tesco. Along the way, Elaine and Hannah have delivered a successful Dragon’s Den pitch, been named on Ireland's list of '30 under 30' who could shape the future of business and been shortlisted to the final sixteen of Sir Richard Branson's Foodpreneur competition. They will share valuable insights from their entrepreneurial journey, which will be relevant to all managers and leaders.
