This is just one of the questions to be posed at the event “In Conversation with Sir Gerry Robinson” that is taking place takes place on 18th September in the Radisson Blu Hotel at 7pm.
Gerry Robinson is a native of Donegal and lives in Raphoe but he has spent the majority of his career working in the UK, turning round major organisations.

It is this wide ranging experience that sets him apart, that gives him the breadth of knowledge across very different sectors.
John Watson from Letterkenny Chamber says “I watched a talk he did previously and even in the few minutes I picked up tips that I could apply immediately. He seems to apply just the right amount of common sense at the right time and is an inspirational and motivational leader.
“I believe this event will inspire all those who attend whether they are managers, business owners or employees. Gerry seems to use down to earth language and is a great communicator. We have been trying for a while to persuade Gerry to speak for us so we are very much looking forward to this event. ”
