Highlights from ICBE International Conference 2022 - 19th October
Eamonn Murphy, Managing Director ICBE
Opening Panel | Exploring how Cross Sectoral Collaboration is the Driver of Innovation
Senior VP Industrial and Multi-Markets, Analog Devices
Opening Panel Overview
- How to drive innovation through cross sectoral collaboration. They spoke about how in Ireland we are very good at this, but that we need to be better at putting ourselves forward at a global level, telling the stories of our success and taking the lead at the highest level. [This is very much our mission at ICBE. We have been promoting and facilitating a culture of collaboration over the last 25 years and are now focused on supporting our members in highlighting their successes on the global stage.]
- They spoke about the changes in the way we need to lead our organisations post-covid and discussed the new skills that every leader now needs. They also spoke about the new opportunities that have arisen - leaders can be located anywhere and we can take leading roles globally, if we have the confidence to put ourselves forward.
- They discussed the drive for sustainability, emphasising that it is now on the boardroom agenda of every organisation. They spoke about the importance of showing your progress and sustainability credentials and why it is essential for it to be an integral part of the organisations strategy.
- They also discussed current challenges around energy, infrastructure, talent and finance.
