London , London
As you know our mission is to help members build upon and expand your personal and professional Irish network here in London. So, we are delighted to introduce our first speaker Paul Whitnell, President of BITA - British and Irish Trading Alliance (www.bita.ie). BITA was created by Paul and Mike Gallagher in the summer of 2012 and shortly after formed by a group of Irish business people working here in the UK. BITA bring British and Irish business, people and companies together to increase the wealth and prosperity of both nations. As I'm sure you'll agree this will be relevant to everyone in the group, so I hope you'll be able to attend. In the meantime I'd encourage you to check out www.bita.ie.
The format of evening will be a 30 minutes presentation followed by drinks and networking. As usual, we will hold the event in Central London and once I get a good idea of numbers I’ll confirm the location.
BITA also hold regular events and will be hosting a social for the much awaited Ireland vs. England match on 22nd February from 2pm in The Rising Sun, 61 Carter Lane, EC4V 5DY. Food will be provided and members’ families and friends are welcome. For more information on this event and to RSVP you can email [masked], just let them know you found out through our Meet-Up group. Look forward to seeing you all on the 27th February.
