The HBS Club of Ireland is delighted to announce details of its forthcoming conference to be held at the Mount Juliet Hotel over the weekend of 4-6 November 2016.
The Club welcomes guest of honour, HBS Professor Willy C. Shih to lead one of the Saturday case discussions. Prof Shih is part of the Technology and Operations Management Unit, and he teaches in the MBA and Executive Education Programs. His expertise is in manufacturing and product development. Prof Shih has written or co-authored more than 125 cases and teaching materials in industries ranging from information technology, consumer electronics, aerospace, manufacturing processes and intellectual property.
The 2016 Conference will be the first since the Club proudly introduced its Non-Profit Fellowship Program. To celebrate the successful launch of this exciting new initiative, the Club will host a Gala Dinner during the conference. We will be joined by Madeleine Clarke, CEO Genio, winner of the inaugural fellowship award, together with other distinguished guests.
The Gala Dinner will be held in the hotel’s Michelin starred Lady Helen restaurant, and will feature a gourmet menu and specially selected wines. David McWilliams, celebrity economist and author has kindly agreed to attend, and will address the gathering after dinner. Known for his rapier wit, David looks forward to some thought-provoking and entertaining audience participation, in the best tradition of HBS’s Socratic pedagogy.
The theme of the 2016 Conference is “Big Data”: the capture, analysis and sharing of the ever increasing volumes of information now being generated. The HBS Club of Ireland is extremely grateful to the world’s leading data visualisation company, Tableau Software, for their kind sponsorship towards the costs of the 2016 Conference.
The HBS Club of Ireland Biennial Conference is open to members and partners. The Conference fee is €100 per attendee, plus relevant accommodation costs.
