Connecting Business – Growing Opportunities

Business and Sport Networking Event

Causeway: Ireland Scotland Business Exchange and Donegal Diaspora are delighted to be partnering to host a networking event focused on business and sport, and how the sector is planning to spring back and bounce forward as we emerge from lockdown to a ‘new normal’.

This online event is being run in partnership with Donegal Diaspora and will have spotlight talks highlighting the Donegal links with Scotland and around the globe, and the growth ambitions of the network in promoting business and trade opportunities in Donegal.

This interactive networking session will be hosted by Causeway Ambassador John McClarey of Business Fives, and will welcome keynote guest speaker, Packie Bonner, former goalkeeper for the Republic of Ireland and Celtic FC, as well as Peter Mossey and Jenn Treacy of Scotland GAA, who will share their experiences of the impact of Covid pandemic on sport, their views and insights on the transferable skills that have been learnt in the last year, and plans looking forward as the sector emerges and recovers.

Having gained considerable experience in the sports related industry throughout a long professional football career, Packie Bonner has successfully been able to transfer the learning from his journey through sport and personal experiences, into the world of business. Over the last ten years, Packie has developed his own personal consultancy business and is continuously sought after to share his considerable expertise and experience for numerous companies and organisations.

This event will also include Q&A talks with Causeway members, Scotland GAA, who will share their plans for the 125th anniversary of the GAA in Scotland and the Pearse Park redevelopment project.

This event will be interactive, with guests having the opportunity to ask questions to our guest speakers, in addition to two breakout networking discussion sessions, to allow attendees the opportunity to network, connect and chat with professionals from both sides of the Irish Sea.
