Shannon Chamber has stepped into the world of sport to equip business
executives with the wherewithal to operate at optimal performance levels.
Renowned high-performance expert Gary Keegan, who devised a world-class
talent management programme for the Irish Amateur Boxing Association
(IABA), has been drafted in to give a half-day seminar to both Chamber members and non-members on Wednesday, May 20 at 8.30am.
The seminar is being held in the viewing gallery at Shannon Airport.
Drawing analogies between business and sport, Mr Keegan will show how
leadership, strategy, culture and execution for results are dependent on
cultivating a high-performance ethos within a company.
Speaking ahead of the event, Shannon Chamber’s chief executive Helen Downes
said: “In his time with the IABA, and now as director of the Irish Institute
of Sport, Gary Keegan has demonstrated his ability to get the best out of
teams. In his five years with the IABA, Ireland won 29 medals at European,
World and Olympic levels, all generated by a carefully constructed talent
“This seminar, which has also been delivered at the London Business School,
is specifically designed for senior management, human resource practitioners, team leaders and heads of departments, or anyone with ultimate responsibility for a company’s or department’s performance . It will force them to really examine and question if they are they operating at a world-class level and whether their executive teams are giving their best.
“It will help them to improve performance within their businesses and take
key learnings from the world of sport.” added Ms Downes
