Good morning,

I hope you are well and are enjoying the summer.

I am excited about returning to Dublin for our next international General Counsel Dining Club exclusive event.  My thanks to our sponsor – Boston College’s Global Leadership Institute and Dr Bob Mauro who will be joining us from Boston.  

Dr. Robert Mauro from the Global Leadership Institute will give us a Talk about leadership and the role of the General Counsel.  It promises to be a fascinating discussion.

This will be an invitation-only event for influential General Counsel in Ireland.

If you are a General Counsel in Dublin and would be interested in receiving an invitation to a future General Counsel Dining Club event, please feel free to email me.  It would be great to hear from you. -Colin (email:
