Whoever said there’s no such thing as a free meal had clearly never attended one of our fantastic networking business breakfasts. National College of Ireland has once more teamed up with Metro Herald and Kellogg’s to present

Whether you are new to business or at the top of your game, these events are a chance to meet and mingle with other professionals over a relaxed breakfast. You will also benefit from the inspiring insights of a range of excellent speakers, who will share their personal experience.


Claire McFerran, Marketing Director, Kellogg Company of Ireland commented:
“As the company who knows breakfast best, the Kellogg Company of Ireland is delighted to join National College of Ireland and Metro Herald for the fourth series of these fantastic events. Kellogg’s currently employs about 250 people here in Ireland, and are delighted to support these free business breakfasts to support the Irish business community. What better way to start your day than to network with your peers over a nutritious breakfast, while hearing the latest thinking on a wide variety of topics from digital marketing to management, cloud computing and higher education.”



The first event was with Louise Phelan, vice president for PayPal in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, who spoke about successful leadership. Louise is followed on November 7th by economist and lecturer, Dr. Constantin Gurdgiev who will speak on the topic of human capital.
