I find the IBN where experience is shared and help is given freely and generously
There is a feeling at an IBN breakfast that the newcomer is as important as the Old Hat
The variety of member’s backgrounds provides a very strong forum for both business and social networking. In true Irish style bonds are forged and I have seen business deals being closed as a result of connections established through the IBN network
Even though my business is Early year’s education, I have specifically benefitted from a number of IBN initiatives: the IBN half day Seminar; the construction sector presented a very informative evening on governance; the Banking sector had some very informative speakers on obtaining finance and Sharia law; and
The YBN welcomed the ‘old and wise’ and presented on the use of social media in business. I have reconnected with people I knew 27 years ago in Dubai and made many new friends also. I always recommend the IBN to newcomers as a good place to start connecting with Irish people in Dubai both for settling into a new country and to help with career advancement.
