Broadband connectivity is critical for business growth and innovation, and is fast becoming a necessity of everyday life, but, how connected is Ireland?

Our Guest presenter, Conal Henry, CEO enet, will place Ireland’s telecoms infrastructure under the microscope and outline:

  1. What communications infrastructure we need
  2. Why we need it and the policy benefits that flow
  3. How it gets run
  4. Where it is now and where it needs to be
  5. Whose job it is to do this now and in the future
  6. When it will get done

A panel discussion, involving IDA Ireland will follow. Audience participation is welcome.
