A talk by Ireland rugby coach Joe Schmidt in aid of the Carmichael Centre for voluntary groups will be held in Davy House on Dawson Street in Dublin at 8am next Wednesday. The session will include a discussion with ‘guru of global philanthropy’ Kingsley Aikins as the two men look back at the Six Nations, the upcoming trip to South Africa and leadership.
Carmichael Centre is home to 48 charities who provide over 40,000 people with shared services, training, good practice and governance support all over Ireland. Aikins played rugby for TCD and had a few outings for Leinster. He worked with the Irish Trade Board and the IDA in Sydney and ran the Australian Ireland Fund and the American Ireland Fund.
He set up Networking Matters, teaching the art of making and building business connections. He was part of the ‘Farmleigh 2’ Global Irish Economic Forum. Tickets for the ‘Fireside Chat’ charity breakfast are €50 and tables for 10 persons cost €400. Payments can be made by credit card. To book, contact Ken Kilbride at the Carmichael Centre on 01-8735702.
