Registration is now open for the Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and Industry World Class Leadership Live event, which will be broadcast live from the ICC Belfast Hybrid Studio on Thursday 25 June.
A longstanding client of ICC Belfast, Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and Industry has delivered countless live events in the convention centre including the annual President’s Banquet which brings together over 1,000 business leaders from its member organisations and beyond.
Whilst lockdown measures have begun to ease in Northern Ireland and preparations for reopening are well underway, the venue team has been working on an innovative solution for clients to communicate their message via a platform that can be completely customised to reflect their brand. Whether attending virtually or in-person, delegates will be able to interact with sessions that can be live-streamed or pre-recorded by asking questions and taking part in polls. Speakers can deliver keynotes or contribute to panel discussions directly from the Hybrid Studio or remotely too and there are a range of options available to display presentations, imagery and videos to create an immersive event experience with a unique Belfast twist that can be enjoyed anywhere in the world.
‘World-Class Leadership Live’ is a new, virtual leadership event created to help Northern Ireland’s business leaders rise to the challenge of emerging and rebuilding from the impact of COVID-19. Speaking ahead of the event, Ann McGregor, Chief Executive, NI Chamber said: “As companies across Northern Ireland emerge from the ‘lockdown’ and begin the process of rebuilding, even the most experienced leaders will be tested. We want to make sure all business leaders are giving direction and taking good decisions from the best position possible. This means building their confidence, instilling agile principals and giving them access to the successful experiences of others.
Leadership Live is a truly world-class event and we are pleased to bring it to market at a time when we know companies need our support.
The panel of speakers is made up of globally renowned experts – leaders in their own right who will share both inspiration and practical lessons. Whatever your business size or sector, we encourage you to take a couple of hours out to join online.”
The event’s headline sponsor is Electric Ireland. Dermot McArdle, Head of Business Markets at the company will be one of the panelists: “At Electric Ireland, we are proud to support the Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and Industry for their World Class Leadership Live series.
“Given the unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important now more than ever, for business leaders worldwide to exercise resilience and empower those around them to thrive. I am delighted to join the NI Chamber at this virtual event and share my experience of motivating dispersed teams and share insights into deal making through sales and negotiation.”
Oonagh O’Reilly, ICC Belfast Director of Sales and Marketing welcomed the news that the World Class Leadership event would be held in the Hybrid Studio saying, “Our team is delighted to be delivering this event, particularly as NI Chamber is at the forefront of our local business community.
During these unprecedented times we are focused on business preparedness and ensuring we are fully equipped to exceed the expectations of our clients. The launch of our Hybrid Studio is a practical example of how now, more than ever before, our pursuit of excellence is relentless.
We pride ourselves on creating emotional connections and delivering an experience rather than just another conference, and we’re confident that the World Class Leadership Live event will be the first of many successful events held in the ICC Belfast Hybrid Studio.”
The event takes place on Thursday 25 June, 1.30pm - 3.30pm. Places at the event are free and business leaders from across every sector are invited to attend. Register for World Class Leadership Live on the Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce website.
