The event will be opened by President of the Irish Chapter of the Chamber and CEO of humm group (UK and Ireland), PJ Byrne, who will provide attendees with a comprehensive overview of the Chamber’s planned activities for 2023.
Together with CEO, Barry Corr, Mr Byrne has guided the Chamber’s Irish-based members through an extensive programme of engagement and events over the course of the last year.
