Kathryn Thomas came to Sigmar’s head office in Dublin on Wed 28th September to launch a novel fundraising campaign by Gorta-Self Help Africa called Dine Al Desko. Gorta-Self Help Africa is asking companies across Ireland to bring their staff together for a shared food experience at work any day during the month of October to raise vital funds to combat famine in Ethiopia and to mark World Food Day on Sunday 16th October; a global day of action against hunger when people come together to declare their commitment to eradicate hunger in our lifetime.

BCIBC CEO event with former Taoisigh John Bruton and Bertie Ahern

Sigmar CCO Robert Mac Giolla Phadraig interviewed former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern as part of the "Boston College Ireland Business Council Global Leadership Symposium" which took place on Dec 3rd. This was followed by an interview with former Taoiseach John Bruton, by Dr.Robert Mauro from Global Leadership Institute at Boston College. Both former leaders shared their thoughts on their term in office as well on the current political and economic landscape on issues such as Brexit and the US elections. This exclusive event was attended virtually by over 200 CEOs from both sides of the Atlantic and was the first time the event was held virtually. Born from partnerships formed during Boston College's college football game in Dublin in 2016, the BCIBC has grown to become a key business artery between Ireland and the US. The BCIBC is seen as the EU chapter of Boston College’s CEO Club, the second largest CEO forum in the world, next to WEF in Davos. This is the 6th instalment in our Global Leadership series and to date, we have welcomed over 2000 global CEOs to our bi-annual symposia. Previous speakers have included former heads of state, Ministers, Congressmen; Dermot Desmond, Willie Walsh (CEO of IAG); Denis O'Brien; Mike Mahoney, CEO of Boston Scientific; Pat Ryan, Chairman of AON; Andy McKenna, Chairman of McDonalds, Siobhan Talbot, CEO of Glanbia and Paul Coulson, Chairman of the Ardagh Group.
