As anyone who receives our newsletter, reads this blog or our website will know, Fergal O’Byrne, our current CEO, is moving on. I’ve really enjoyed working with him and I’ve learnt a lot from him and I’ll be sorry to see him go. Our loss is definitely Sonru.com‘s gain!
<Long appropriate pause>
However I’m always excited by the prospect of meeting and working with new people so why not apply for the role of CEO? (Note: my interest in meeting & working with new people should not be your only motivation for expressing an interest in this role. Check out the job specification in PDF format.)
The IIA Board are welcoming expressions of interest. Due to the treacle time of summer they have decided to extend the original deadline by two weeks until 6pm Friday 21st August. You can read more about the process in this PDF.
Again these are just expressions of interest so if you think you might be interested, go for it. The subsequent process will help you and the board decide if it’s the job for you.
Please don’t ask me, Roseanne, any specific questions about this opportunity because I am not directly involved of course. However get in touch and I will be happy to direct you to the relevant Board member who can discuss the role in more depth.
And if you do decide to go for it – GOOD LUCK!
I’m going to be busy this week meeting business people at the Donegal Enterprise Board Enterprising Donegal Week on Tuesday and others at the Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown Enterprise Week on Wednesday. So this is just a quick (late night!) post to say if there are any members who would like to come and meet business people who are looking for advice on using all aspects of the internet in all kinds of business I would welcome your expertise at the IIA stand between 4pm and 6pm on Wednesday 25th March. All details via the link above. At a previous enterprise event I was asked questions about choosing web developers/ designers, email marketing, using social media for business, as well as more bizarre and thankfully expected questions about the IIA and the internet in general!
If you are a member of the IIA and you think you have half an hour to spare please email me at members at iia dot ie.
