BUSI­NESS lead­ers are set to learn les­sons on how to sail through chal­leng­ing con­di­tions at the In­sti­tute of Di­rec­tors North­ern Ire­land (IOD NI) an­nual din­ner.

Martin Mc­court, best known for his 15 years as chief ex­ec­u­tive of Dyson, has been an­nounced as main speaker for the event, spon­sored by Bank of Ire­land and law firm Arthur Cox.

Glas­gow-born Mr Mc­court is now non-ex­ec­u­tive chair­man at Glen Dim­plex and has also held se­nior po­si­tions at glob­ally recog­nised firms such as Mars, Du­ra­cell and Toshiba.

The din­ner takes place on Fe­bru­ary 7 at Belfast’s Crowne Plaza Ho­tel.

Ca­tri­ona Gib­son, man­ag­ing part­ner at Arthur Cox, added: “As one of North­ern Ire­land’s lead­ing law firms, it is a priv­i­lege to part­ner with the IOD once again to sup­port its an­nual din­ner.

“Martin Mc­court’s key­note ad­dress will un­doubt­edly pro­vide sig­nif­i­cant in­sight into the re­la­tion­ship be­tween strong lead­er­ship and suc­cess­ful busi­nesses.

The event is open to both mem­bers and non-mem­bers.
