Superb very well organised event! We had a great time attending and looking forward to the next one. Thanks for the host and everyone who attended.

Just a quick big thank you for hosting such a wonderful event last night. It was really well run, and think that the Black Tie event certainly added to the occasion. We are very proud of our award, and celebrated its presentation at today’s site team meeting.

Once again, we are very honoured to have received our award, and look forward to attending again next time.

Being a judge on the 2018 Lean Business Ireland Awards was one of the most inspiring roles I have taken in recent times. It was a privilege to get an insight into the incredible work being done by small, medium and large enterprises across the country. Their work, collectively, is changing the status quo and how we do business in Ireland. It is positioning our country to be an example of best practice across the world. I was very proud to be involved. Many thanks to Breda O’Toole, Richard Keegan, Senan O Riain, Ronan McGlade and all the team at Lean Business Ireland and Box Media for the opportunity.

I just wanted to thank you so much for a wonderful evening last Thursday. The venue, food, entertainment, company and of course the ceremony for the award winners was really done so well and professionally.

It is great to experience an evening so full of the ‘good feel factor'.
