Want to find out what Ireland’s next big idea is? has the answer. is a series of inspiring talks by and about Irish people with big and interesting ideas and they want to share them with you. From genetics and cancer research to marine biology and economics – we have something to suit everybody’s interests.

Each of our speakers will have just six minutes to tell the audience what their big idea is without the use of PowerPoint or notes – challenging even for the most experienced public speakers.

Light refreshments will be served after the event where the audience will have a chance to mingle with the speakers and ask them any questions that they may have.

This fantastic event is free but booking is essential.
