It was a great privilege to meet the new President of the CISI Ireland Committee, Adele Spillane, CFA, Dip IoD, her predecessor Eugene Kiernan and all the NAC members. We had a great discussion with the Central Bank of Ireland policy team, an insightful CPD event with Jim Powers and dinner with local partners.
