Newsletter September 2020

Dear Members,

We hope the rentrée is going well for you all!

As eager as we are to get back to our physical events, the safety of our members and guests is of utmost priority. The current, very necessary, health and safety protocols make effective and enjoyable physical networking somewhat difficult however we are determined to fill our autumn agenda with a variey of relevant, valuable and interactive events which you, our members, will find interesting and beneficial. We are delighted and honoured to begin the season with an exclusive online interview with Minister Simon Coveney. See below for all details and please make sure to send in any questions you would like put to the Minister on October 5th. 

We continue to work on developing our website and would encourage you all to check out a new section in your Member Portal : Member to Member Offers. This new section will be developed over the coming weeks as we reach out to all business and pioneer members that would like to offer advantages to fellow NetworkIrlande members. Huge thanks to business members Bold Executives, Denjean & Associés and French Payroll Expert for helping kick-off this project with their great offers.

Finally, a reminder to make sure you are following NetworkIrlande on LinkedIn and/or Twitter to keep up with all the latest news in the Franco-Irish business space.

We look forward to connecting with you all on October 5th!
