Connecting Business – Growing Opportunities

St Patrick's Day Celebration and Online Networking



In partnership with the Dublin Chamber and Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce

In advance of St Patrick's Day 2021, Causeway: Ireland Scotland Business Exchange, in partnership with the Dublin Chamber and the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce, invite you to join us for an online celebration and networking event at 4pm on Tuesday 16 March 2021.

This event will focus on the growing partnerships being developed between Ireland and Scotland, and will provide professionals - from across Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland - with the opportunity to make new connections and explore opportunities to develop new business relationships and collaborations on both sides of the Irish Sea.

This event will involve some group breakout networking sessions and guest speeches from:

  • David Greenlees, Chair of Causeway: Ireland Scotland Business Exchange
  • Jane McCulloch, Consul General of Ireland in Scotland
  • Mary Rose Burke, CEO of Dublin Chamber 
  • Liz McAreavey, CEO of Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce

As this event is the start of our St Patrick's Day celebrations, we aim for this event to be an upbeat and uplifting occasion to celebrate the growing friendship between Ireland and Scotland.

We will close this event by inviting guests to raise a glass and join us for some informal chat and hopefully, some craic!

Please register for this event and we will send you Zoom access details nearer the time.
