About this event

Philip Bain - Chair IC Northern Ireland
The Northern Ireland Region of the Institute of Consulting in association with our sister organisation in the Republic of Ireland, the Institute of Management Consultants and Advisers (IMCA), will make a special presentation to Martin Naughton at a special gala presentation lunch as part of a networking day which will be held in the Long Gallery, Parliament Buildings, Stormont, Belfast on Tuesday 17th June 2014.

Martin Naughton is the founder and chairman of the Glen Dimplex Group. He started the company in 1973 as Glen Electric, with a mere ten employees, later acquiring Dimplex, the leading brand in the U.K. heating market. An engineer by profession, Naughton has overseen his company’s growth to become the world’s largest manufacturer in domestic heating appliances.

Philip Bain, Chair Institute of Consulting Northern Ireland writes:

As we emerge from the shadow of the biggest recession in generations, the roles of the business consultant and both of our professional organisations are becoming increasingly important across the island of Ireland.

Many client organisations are struggling for survival and the support provided by business professionals across the whole range of business disciplines continues to make the difference between survival and failure.

It is important that clients have confidence in the skills and competencies of our combined membership.

The collective experience of our membership is already recognised and as this resource is harnessed for economic revival, both IC and IMCA have a responsibility to ensure that all members have access to the means of improving their professionals skills.

Professional development programmes for our members will remain a priority and this event provides an opportunity for our memberships to further improve their professional competencies while at the same time, recognising the achievement of our members in achieving Chartered Manager Status and the award of the Certificate in Managing Consulting.

We will also take the opportunity to acknowledge the very significant ongoing professional contribution made by Martin Naughton to business life on the island of Ireland over the past thirty years.

We look forward to seeing you on 17th June.

Best wishes,

Philip Bain
