Workplace Summit 2019


People, Place, Technology

“The Future of the Workplace”


The Workplace Summit is a one-day conference and exhibition which takes place on February 6th 2019 at Croke Park. It is the first conference in Ireland to centre on the three key areas of workplace, – People, Place and Technology.

We intend the Workplace Summit to be innovative, interesting, disruptive and fun!

We are looking to have the best people in their areas to deliver talks which will inspire those involved in the Workplace profession in Ireland to influence their own organisations and push the boundaries of what’s possible.


We are delighted to announce Chris Kane (ex -Disney and BBC) will Chair the Workplace Summit.


Already the following speakers are confirmed:

Margot Slattery (Sodexo Country President Ireland); Bashar Kassab (Facilities Director, the Burj Khalifa & Dubai Mall), Hannah Dwyer (Head of Research, JLL), Fionnuala Byrne (Director of Facilities CEMEA, Google), Neil Usher (Workplace Director Sky); Chris Moriarty (Head of Insight, IWFM), Euan Semple (business strategist and facilitator), Hung Lee (CEO,, Mary Connaughton (CIPD Ireland Director), George Harold (CEO, Integrated Facilities Solutions), Martin Pickard (Managing Director, FM GURU), George Muir (Futurist, LiveTiles) .


The venue itself, Croke Park is the home of Gaelic Sports in Ireland and as a conference venue has a certain quality that adds vitality to the occasion as I am sure you are well aware. Based on previous conferences we have organised we would be expecting a large audience on the day which will include many of the key people involved in Workplace and FM both in Ireland and Europe.
