The SFA Annual Lunch is the highlight of the small business calendar. It is an opportunity to celebrate the contribution that small businesses make to the Irish economy and society.
The SFA Annual Lunch 2018, sponsored by Bank of Ireland will take place in the Mansion House in Dublin on Friday, 16 November. This is the perfect opportunity to bring together your invited guests, special customers, clients and valued employees to kick off the festive season.
Our keynote address will be from David McWilliams, economist, author, journalist, documentary-maker and broadcaster. David is Adjunct Professor of Global Economics at the School of Business Trinity College Dublin and is ranked 10th most influential economist in the world. David has devoted his entire professional life to the objective of making economics as widely available and easily understandable on as many platforms and to as many people as possible – and is having a laugh doing it.
As well as our keynote, guests at the lunch will also hear from Sue O'Neill, SFA Chair, and Michael Lauhoff, Bank of Ireland Director of Business Banking.
