Search for the 2015 Young Leader of the Year
07 May 2015
Young Leaders NI is a group formed by the Institute of Directors, Junior Chamber International Belfast, the Northern Ireland Young Solicitors’ Association, and the Chartered Accountants Ireland Ulster Society Young Professionals Group. The aim of the event being to encourage and inspire the leaders of tomorrow across industry and the professional services in Northern Ireland – through education, sharing ideas and creating personal development opportunities.
Each year the conference has brought together over 240 young leaders to share best practice and learn from established business leaders and from each other. We anticipate that this year’s event, entitled ‘Secrets of Success’, will once again be a sell-out.
Young Leaders NI are delighted to announce that the line-up for the June conference will include Wayne Hemingway MBE, co-founder of Red or Dead and HemingwayDesign; Anita Murphy, Director and Co-Founder of The Creativity Hub; David Meade, NI Mentalist and a number of other business leaders.
David formally opened the search for Northern Ireland’s Young Leader of the Year 2015 and made the first call for nominations. Recognition of outstanding young professionals who show exceptional leadership skills is an important focus for Young Leaders NI. This is now the fourth year of the highly coveted accolade which is kindly sponsored by global law firm Herbert Smith Freehills LLP.
