Inspire & Lead with Deborah Somorin and Niall O'Sullivan


The logic of the inspire and lead talks is to bring together members and non- members from all walks of life from charitable, business and sporting backgrounds to share their life experiences. We have identified those individuals who we believe can inspire us with their stories and provide us with valuable insights into leadership and what this means to them. Join us for the first talk on Thursday October 24th from 7.45am, in Chartered Accountants House.
