The New UK: Succeeding in a Changing Market

The UK Market is evolving. Irish companies are demonstrating incredible resilience in adapting to a changing landscape and are now looking to the future. Watch our on-demand webinar as we explored the New UK and the opportunities and challenges it presents. CEOs from a range of Irish companies shared their UK growth strategies – to inspire others with growth ambition.

Julie Sinnamon, CEO Enterprise Ireland, was joined by the Mayor of Greater Manchester and Mayor of the Liverpool City Region to examine future relations between Ireland and the UK and how the UK’s evolution is shaped by Covid, a future outside the EU and the need for climate action.

The CEO of Simon-Kucher & Partners, a leading global consultancy specialising in top-line growth strategies, shared his insights on how to succeed in this new world and the relevant profit levers to apply.

With a panel of CEOs of successful Irish companies we delved deeper into their growth strategies and ambitions for the coming year, and ultimately how they plan to tackle the new UK.
