Tangible Ireland Ambassador Summer School

by | Aug 19, 2018

Over the last few years, I have attended Tangible Ireland events in Dublin, London and Belfast. They have always interesting, lively, and educational. I have made some fantastic contacts that have supported the development of Firewalking International. Therefore, it is a great pleasure to attend the Tangible Ireland Ambassador Summer School from the 21st – 23rd August 2018. And as a bonus, I will be delivering a short course in Authentic Leadership.

What is Tangible Ireland?

Tangible was established in Howth, County Dublin, Ireland in 2001 to provide Support Services to Start-Up Enterprises and Foreign Direct Investment Projects on the island of Ireland. Progressively, Tangible has widened its horizons and now works internationally from its base in Dublin City Centre. In January 2009 Tangible in response to growing despondency in the market embarked on a crusade through the Tangible Leadership Series to inspire Business and Civic Leadership in Ireland and around the world based on its Core Values and Ethos.

What is The Tangible Ireland Ambassador Summer School?

The Tangible Ireland Ambassador Summer School provides a relaxed environment where business and civic leaders can share their vision and participate in a rigorous discussion about issues pertaining to progress towards a better world. Identifying and cultivating Tangible Leaders across all sectors of society is the core ambition of the Ambassador Summer School. The focus is on:

  • Developing skills and competence to deliver meaningful change
  • Attracting and introducing like-minded leaders from Ireland and the Diaspora
  • Using those relationships to increase the efficacy of our collective efforts

Visionary thinking and tangible leadership are paramount in Ireland and around the world today. The programme is designed to offer significant opportunities for individuals to develop their capacity for visionary leadership. Tangible Ireland’s commitment is to work with you, supporting you in the achievement of extraordinary results in your professional and personal life. Facilitating your performance, learning and development assures excellent leadership to the wider community at home and internationally.
