Dell EMC, University of Limerick and the Limerick Chamber today announced that its successful Business Leaders Series from 2017 is being rolled out again this year.

Dell EMC has confirmed its continued commitment to the initiative by hosting the first event of the 2018 series.

The Limerick Chamber Regional Leaders’ programme was hugely successful in 2017 with five events and 150 participants from a broad range of indigenous companies across the Mid-West business community. A number of mentoring sessions have also been successfully organised over the past year. The series of events in 2018 promises to be similarly popular and insightful with the first event of 2018 taking place at the Dell EMC Limerick campus.

Clive Bellows, Executive Vice President of Corporate and Institutional Services at Northern Trust delivered the first leadership talk of the series to members of the Mid-West business community as part of the Limerick Chamber Regional Leaders’ programme. The programme is being delivered by Limerick Chamber in collaboration with Dell EMC and University of Limerick.

Mr. Bellows commented: “It’s great to be part of this programme that brings the business community in the Mid-West together. In my career over the past 30 years, I have experienced many different types of leaders and various techniques can work for different people. For me, leadership is not about a title or a designation but more about impact, influence and inspiration. It’s about helping your team to become leaders and not just followers.”

Denis Kelly, Site Leader, Dell EMC Limerick said: “At Dell EMC we are focused on giving people the leadership skills that they need to fulfil both their own potential while also ensuring at all times that we deliver for our customers. As one of the area’s largest employers, we feel we have a responsibility to work closely with the companies in our community to help them to grow and thrive and to help them build long-term, sustainable businesses.
