On Thursday 19th April the leading minds in Irish business converged at Croke Park for the All Ireland Business Summit. A key part of the day was the 4th Annual Business All Stars Awards. Divided into 21 categories, ranging from New Business to Innovative Business, the line up reflected the diverse stages of development and vertical specialisation of Irish companies in the last 12 months.
At ActionCOACH we were proud to support this annual celebration of business as sponsors, exhibitors and speakers. It was a pleasure to Sponsor the Business All Stars – Medium category as well as to have our team present in the exhibition hall to meet with business owners and managers. It was great to see many familiar faces receiving accreditation and awards.
ActionCOACH Ireland Managing Director Marina Bleahen had the pleasure of presenting the Business All Star Medium Award to Smart Storage Solutions who beat stiff competition from GES Group, Westport Adventure Park and Cube Design Print Packaging.
The ActionCOACH connection to the awards didn’t stop there. The DentalTech Group picked up the All Star for Small Business as well as receiving Business All Star Community Thought Leader (Dental) accreditation. Their ActionCOACH Business Coach Richard Cullen was amongst the first to congratulate Group Owner Bevin Mahon and her team on their well earned success.
It was a busy day for Richard as another of his clients Denise O’Callaghan owner of Optimise Design received Business All Star Design Leader Accreditation on the day as well.
There was more success for ActionCOACH clients as Little Learners Pre-School & Montessori picked up double accreditations for Product Innovation and Team. Little Learner’s owner Nessa McNamara took a few minutes between judging rounds to acknowledge the support and encouragement of her business coach John O’Sullivan to pursue such prestigious accreditation.
To cap off a fantastic day we had the pleasure of chatting to record breaking runner, Sinead Kane (#BlindRunner777) after she came off stage from giving a keynote presentation. Record breaking runner, Sinead and her coach John O’Regan shared with us a story of resilience and commitment which she summed up in a memorable quote;
“it takes team work to make dreams work.”
