The RDS Preparing to Takeoff – Reach for Recovery Business Breakfast series began in May 2011 with the goal of sharing ideas and communicating both the challenges and opportunities that exist for Ireland.
The goal of the RDS Foundation Industry and Commerce programme is to help drive Ireland's economic recovery by supporting the business performance of Irish-based companies and providing networking and information-sharing opportunities for business leaders, young entrepreneurs and influencers.
Beginning in 2012, the RDS embarked on a series of lectures designed to address the next chapter in our economic story by welcoming those who are directly responsible for helping rebuild the Irish economy.
The RDS Gold Medal Award for Industry is one of the Society's flagship awards, recognising excellence in industry. It is awarded annually to an individual who has made an exceptional impact on industry and commerce.
