Deloitte host Strategic Alliance Partnership launch event with Insurance Ireland

The new Deloitte and Insurance Ireland talent Strategic Alliance Partnership launched on 6 June 2019 at an exclusive networking lunch at the Deloitte Greenhouse. This event focussed on the topic of culture and diversity,  specifically addressing the role of leadership and its impact on the consumer.

Key decision makers from across the industry got together to discuss the matter, resulting in practical and actionable insights for all to utilise. Ian Curtin, Director, Deloitte, firstly gave an overview of the drivers and elements that shape culture in organisations, and discussed the challenges that must be faced, but also the practical steps that organisations can take to turn aspirations into impactful actions. We had a lively debate amongst our panel of industry experts:

  • Valarie Daunt, Partner, Deloitte
  • Maeve Gallagher, Asia-Europe Foundation
  • Oonagh Kelly, New Ireland Wealth and Assurance
  • Mike Ennis, Director, Deloitte
