April GBSessions!

After the holidays we are excited for the return of more interesting GBSessions!

This month we can look forward to two sessions on a wide range of topics, led by a member of our team and a very special external guest.

On April 11th our guest speaker Jan Flachet will run a discussion focused mainly towards our Oil and Gas majors, on the every changing landscape of energy. Jan, now retired, was the President and CEO of ENGIE Asia Pacific.

ENGIE develops its businesses (power, natural gas, energy services) around a model based on responsible growth to take up today’s major energy and environmental challenges: meeting energy needs, ensuring the security of supply, fighting against climate change and maximizing the use of resources.” We are very fortunate to be able to have him leading this session and are sure this will be a fascinating discussion for all those in attendance.

On April 25th we can look forward to a session run by a member of our own team. This is our faculty member Claudia Saba, who is currently one of our International Relations professors. Claudia will lead an assessment of the state of the UN this century. Her background is largely in Academia and Research, as her Doctorate of Philosophy was in Politics and International Relations.  Since then she has gone on to research topics including the forreign and social policy in the Irish and EU context. She has also published a number of publication on topics ranging from the Palestinian Liberation Movement to Civil Society in Gaza.

We are greatly looking forward to these session, which are sure to be enlightening and highly informative for all those in attendance.
