When and where is it on?
November 21, 2018 5:30pm-8pm at the Workbench Space at Bank of Ireland, Hamilton Building, Trinity College Dublin
How many years has it been going?
This is the inaugural event and also the kick off launch for Energized CEOs
What was the inspiration to start it?
In early 2018, executive coaches and serial business CEOs James Kilgarriff (England) and Geraldine Smythe (Ireland/USA) met through Bill Baren’s Premium Business Coaching Leadership course, these two business veterans had already run over a dozen successful businesses, plus coached 100s of CEOs and senior company leaders collectively. It wasn’t until after the course, and several months into our monthly ‘accountability’ calls when we realised we were both on a mission to support CEOs, specifically. In the world of sports, unlike business, no one would second guess the need for an Olympian or world-class ball player to require a coach.
So, together we decided it was high-time to co-create a new kind of leadership service to support and nurture good business leaders holistically, both for their professional and personal success. So we founded Energized CEOs, an internationally focused executive coaching and education firm. Its premise is straight forward: Good leaders can become superb forces for positive progress with the right mix of support, coaching, and education.
What exciting things can people look forward to?
Besides getting a chance to expand their individual network with other like-minded Irish executive leaders from across sectors this interactive educational leadership workshop will provide CEOs and leaders the chance to clearly discover, identify and uncover the hidden challenges that may have been holding them back from their full potential and success in business. We will show participants through a series of individual and group exercises and lines of questioning to be able to ensure they can leave with a concrete set of ideas they can apply to get unstuck and unleash fast results in their area of concern for business.
Already for example I’ve heard of people coming to us who are really concerned with team building, hiring, systems management, competition and other topics that we will help them address quickly.
What opportunities are on offer for those attending?
1) Meet with two executive coaches for free to uncover their hidden main challenge in business
2) Have the opportunity to meet for an extended one on one session for free to further create a specific and bespoke strategy for tackling and overcoming their biggest business challenge rapidly
3) Expand their network by meeting 40 other like-minded leaders of Irish business
4) Being part of a mastermind if they’d like to continue meeting so they don’t have to feel isolated in making tough decisions for the future of their business.
5) Learn about our forthcoming coaching and educational group and individual programs available in 2019 for executive leaders.
Who will be speaking?
James Kilgarriff and Geraldine Smythe will be facilitating and speaking briefly to introduce everyone as well as the workshop content
What tips would you give to people attending to get the most out of it?
Come prepared to meet 3 new people and be open to opening up about their biggest challenge so we can dive in quickly and help them identify it and steps to overcome it quickly in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. Others will be doing the same
