Now connecting over 17,000 business people within Ireland and around the world, Irish Executives continues to respond to the economic pressure with a commitment to sharing ideas, insights, expertise, solutions and know-how which exists among the Irish Diaspora at home and abroad. http://tinyurl.com/IES-Video-2012.

As a Network organization we have primarily used LinkedIn as our front end to achieve and channel most of our programs.

In LinkedIn groups today there is an abundance of choice in terms of data, surveys  and postings , some with great value and some with a lesser relevance. Some are posted to multiple groups with no real intent and/or are not generating any discussion and some groups have sadly become pure Marketing platforms or the members have simply stopped engaging with one another.

With such a large group and diversity @ IEN we really want to focus on bringing the art of conversation back and keep having  great discussions.  @ IEN we are obsessed by not losing the original intent of the forum which is to debate, share and engage.  We had great discussions lately and we would like to pursue on the same vein with the introduction of a new exclusive program called:

Bloggers in Residence @ Irish Executives Network


What is it ?

We have asked 8 members of the network including myself  to provide content for publication on various topics such as Top of Mind, Finance, Wellness, Business , Social Media or Agriculture to name a few. The content will be unique and exclusive to Irish Executives Network and will be hosted on our newly launched IEN Blog.


Who are the Bloggers in Residence ?

Why should I read the IEN blogs ?

Hi Pascal,
The Bloggers piece sounds very interesting, I went into the link today and it said nothing could be found in the archive. It maybe that as this is just launching that you do not have contend yet. Best of luck with it, I look forward to reading. The group seems to have good energy
