This programme ran for the first time in 2016. Below are just some of the comments from our successful New Leaders:

The leadership programme was beyond all shadow of a doubt the most life-transforming course I have been on. I have taken a great deal from it and applied to it to my role.
Kevin O'Leary, Solicitor, Cork County Council 

'I cannot recommend this course highly enough'
Hilkka Becker, Deputy Chairperson International Protection Appeals Tribunal - Refugee, Migration and Human Rights Lawyer

'Innovative, challenging and hugely rewarding. Highly recommended'.
Helen O’Neill, Law Agent, Fingal County Council  

'I took part in the Law Society Finuas Network Executive Leadership Management Programme. It was the most worthwhile professional course I have ever undertaken. It was extremely well organised and hands on from day 1. There were some hugely impressive contributors and the skills learned have greatly benefitted my practice and I hope my team members. It was hugely enjoyable.'
Barry Creed, Solicitor and Partner, McDermott Creed & Martyn

'The Course was extremely insightful and was well worth doing. I am still referring back to tips I picked up on the course and it gave me a structure and tools to use for well into the future.'
Louise Cushen, Solicitor, Planning and Environmental Law Specialist, ESB Business Service Centre
