Digital Irish & IIBN Joint Event

We are back in April with a bang!

This time (and for the first time) in conjunction with the Irish International Business Network (IIBN). The event will take place at the Irish Consulate at 345 Park Avenue. Thanks again to Peter Ryan and his staff at the Consulate for their generous support.

Here is the agenda…

Industry Speaker

Deirdre Connelly – Executive Producer for Embassy Row. Deirdre joined Embassy Row in 2009 to helm the production of Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live!” with Andy Cohen.

Prior to joining Embassy Row, Deirdre’s experience included producing MTV’s flagship daily show “Total Request Live”. Deirdre will talk about her role at Embassy Row and the impact of digital on the TV production business. Deirdre is also an Advisory Board member of the IIBN in New York.

Startup Pitches 

  1. Tadhg O’Toole – CEO LikeCharity. Dublin-based. Founded on the belief that the future of fundraising is mobile and social, LikeCharity makes it easy by letting you donate directly from your mobile phone. For charities, LikeCharity takes ownership on campaign spends to ensure ROI.
  2. Susan O’Brien – Founder, Smigin. NY-based. Ex-pat Susan O’Brien has created a revolutionary way to speak a foreign language. Learn why American Airlines are adopting the Smigin platform to ensure their cabin attendants are competent at servicing customers of all languages. Susan is an Advisory Board member of the IIBN in New York.
  3. Sean Blanchfield – CEO, Pagefair. Dublin-based. The internet survives with ad dollars. Ad blocking technology puts that at risk. The more technically savvy the audience, the greater the risk that the publication in question will have its ads blocked by the user. Pagefair helps publishers work around adblocking technology to ensure monetization opportunities are not lost.
  4. Tony Prylowski – CEO, Compendia. Dublin-based. With the proliferation of tablets, Compendia bridges the gap for enterprises to embrace this technology by providing a solution that ties together discrete apps with a collaboration layer that meets the security requirements of large enterprises.
