IWA Annual General Meeting and Conference 2017

IWA Annual General Meeting and Conference 2017

Saturday, 13th May 2017 in the INEC, Killarney.

IWA holds an Annual General Meeting (AGM) and a national conference to which all members and key stakeholders are invited. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, 13th May 2017 in the INEC, Killarney.

The theme for this year’s conference is ‘Breaking Boundaries’. We are delighted to announce that Dr Eddie Murphy, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Author and Advocate will act as MC for the event and will facilitate an engaging panel discussion.

Dr Eddie is a Head of Psychology / Principal Clinical Psychologist working in the HSE and is committed to providing professional psychology passionately and promoting successful outcomes using CBT, Mindfulness, Solution Focused therapies for children, adults, families, communities and organisations.

He is the psychologist on RTE’s Operation Transformation where his practical, respectful and hope orientated approach has opened the hidden doors of the therapy room to the public at large.

Dr Eddie is passionate about improving disability services.

The conference will also include an address from Mr Paul McNeive, a chartered surveyor and managing director of Hamilton Osborne King when the firm was sold to Savills for €50m.

Paul started his career as a trainee in the basement of the firm and not even the loss of his legs in a fire prevented him from rising to the top position to lead 250 staff. Paul will be addressing delegates in relation to resilience, adversity and maximising your personal potential. Following this, delegates in attendance will explore issues and topics based on the theme of the conference.
