It was a terrific event and the panel discussions were particularly lively. The hot topics of Brexit, GDPR, working with millenials, and innovation to drive success were all extremely well received.

Congratulations to Catherine Corcoran from RSM who was the delighted winner of the Brightwater prize draw and went home with a €200 Brown Thomas voucher and a bottle of Moet. 

Thanks to all at Chartered Accountants Ireland for organising such a great event.
