Australia – Sydney Young Leaders Annual Corporate Breakfast 2018

Date : Thursday 25 October 2018

Venue : LinkedIn Sydney

Location : 1 Martin Place, Sydney, NSW 2000

Time : 7:15AM - 8:45AM


Technology as a force for change and a force for chaos: Insiders’ Perspectives

The technology sector is a two part story at the minute. On the one hand the tech giants are growing at speed and are employers of choice, leading the way on everything from employee experience to platforms and design.

On the other hand, their reputations are taking a battering as the wider world begins to realise the unforeseen impacts of the increasing prevalence of technology in every facet of our work, political and family lives.

The Ireland Funds Australia Sydney Young Leaders committee is excited to invite you to have the opportunity to explore these issues, with some of Ireland’s most successful representatives in Australia working in the tech sector and leading technology implementation in other sectors.

We are delighted to have the opportunity to be hosted by LinkedIn, in their corporate Sydney headquarters at No1 Martin Place for our annual Corporate Breakfast. Joining us in that lovely venue will be:

  • Grainne Kearns: Chief Information Officer at Lion
  • Fiona Bones: Senior Finance Director, Google
  • Paul McCrory: Group Industry Director, Facebook
  • Letrecia Tippett: Head of Sales Solutions Australia and New Zealand, LinkedIn

We’ll be taking our panel through details of their early careers, the path that has led them into the tech sector and technology and any advice and lessons they would give to anyone seeking to follow their path. Given the importance of the tech sector to the Irish economy and in Australia, this promises to be an interesting and useful discussion.

Included in your ticket price will be barista coffee, excellent networking opportunities and a delicious light buffet breakfast. We will also have some expert advisors from LinkedIn on hand to show our attendees first-hand how to get the very best from your LinkedIn profile.

As always, proceeds from our corporate breakfast will support our nominated Young Leader charities, which for 2018 are: Suas, a literacy support charity in Ireland, and the GO Foundation, providing support and opportunities for Indigenous kids in education.
