The Australian Young Leaders have some exciting announcements!

Last year the Australian Young Leaders collectively raised more $37,000 with the help of our members and supporters and held 8 fantastic events across Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

Thanks to you, the Ireland Funds is there

We are thrilled to announce our exciting events coming up:

Sydney Young Leaders Corporate Breakfast

The world is rapidly changing and finding opportunities is an essential part of navigating the current unpredictable business environment. In fact, “business as unusual” is the new normal, and whole industries are changing in response to a series of unprecedented demands and issues in the business environment.

The Ireland Funds Australia Sydney Young Leaders committee is excited to invite you to have the opportunity to explore these issues, with some key insiders’ perspectives.

Tickets are $50 for Financial Young Leaders and $65 for Non-Financial members.

Tickets for this unique event are strictly limited, so book ASAP to avoid disappointment. Included in your ticket price will be barista coffee, a delicious light buffet breakfast and excellent networking opportunities.
