Northern Ireland IPA Members Reception

Launch of the IPA NI Group Agenda from incoming IPA Chair for NI, Helen Blakley

Join us on Thursday, 15 June at the MAC Belfast for the launch of the IPA NI Group Agenda from incoming IPA Chair for NI, Helen Blakley.

Helen's agenda is inspired by Josh Krichefski's inaugural President’s ‘People First’ agenda consisting of three core pillars:

  1. Attracting the best talent – by ‘opening eyes’.
  2. Retaining & Nurturing talent – by ‘opening hearts’.
  3. Looking after the wellbeing of everyone – by ‘opening minds’.

We will be hearing from different perspectives on what the industry can do to ensure we have a ‘people first’ focus and attract, develop and retain the brightest and the best talent.

The event is open to all IPA members.
