Speaking ahead of the event, Laura Jackson of BDO said; “Having David host and speak about his unique insights into this field will no doubt be something that each attendee takes away back to their working lives.”
Bank of Ireland UK and BDO Northern Ireland today launched its 3rd Annual Ladies Lunch event aimed at local high profile female business women. With the support of high profile hosts at the Great Hall at Queens University Belfast on the 24th September the focus this year is on inspiring business teams.
Guest speaker and host David Meade will share his dynamic thinking, personal experiences and insights on how to overcome challenges and succeed in building successful business teams. Very importantly the event will also see over 150 business women raise funds and awareness for Action Cancer’s unique breast screening service. The event will coincide with the launch of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
David is a researcher and lecturer in international business with one of Ireland’s leading Universities. By combining his professional and personal passions with his love of the performance of mentalism, he has become a sought after speaker with a reputation for an innovative style that forces audiences to think critically about the challenges around them.
Laura Jackson of BDO added; “We are delighted to support the Action Cancer Ladies Lunch. Being involved now for its 3rd year, we at BDO Northern Ireland understand the importance of teamwork working closely with Action Cancer and Bank of Ireland UK to host these successful events. We hope to bring out our experiences of this effective teamwork and learn more from the ladies who attend about their experiences.”
Maria McAllister of Bank of Ireland UK said, “For me a common purpose and passion are central to successful teamwork and in delivering this event the common purpose shared by Action Cancer, BDO and Bank of Ireland UK is saving lives through collaborating on a business event which engages business women whilst heightening breast cancer awareness.”
The total raised to date is over £26,000, enabling an additional 260 breast screenings and 270 counselling sessions for women in Northern Ireland.
Action Cancer is the only charity that provides breast screening in Northern Ireland and it provides the service for women aged 40-49 and 70+; last year 10,000 women were screened – most women receive peace of mind and reassurance. However, for every 1,000 women screened, an average of 6 breast cancers are detected which can be life-saving through earlier detection.
