With Wimbledon underway, and the sun splitting the stones in Dublin, we had to take advantage of our in-house tennis couch James Cluskey and get out to play a spot of tennis! We gathered a number of HR professionals together to enjoy Pimms, BBQ and a panel discussion!
The day kicked off with welcome Pimms for everyone on arrival to the Lansdowne Tennis Club. As soon as everyone was ready it was time to hit the court. With the help of our Head of Mason Alexander Sports James, and two other coaches, teams were formed and the games began! Competition was fierce but everyone enjoyed the games and drills in the sun!
After the activities everyone made their way back to the club house to enjoy the BBQ! Once everyone was fed and watered, the panel discussion began. Mason Alexander CEO Andrew Lynch kicked off the discussion with Lisa Bolger, Director of HR Operations in Partner Re and Ciaran Boyle, Head of HR in AIB. The discussion circled around “HR in today’s landscape, the challenge of attracting and retaining key staff”
The day was topped off by strawberries and cream for everyone – in true Wimbledon style!
Our next networking event & panel discussion “Women Who Mean Business” will take place on Wednesday 12th September. If you would like to participate, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
