Advance was delighted to host its first event in Dublin, Ireland on 30 October 2007. Sponsored by the Queensland Government, the Queensland – Work Live Play networking event in Ireland drew more than thirty professionals from a wide variety of backgrounds.
The Ireland event was also attended by the First Secretary and Deputy Head of Mission of the Australian Embassy, Ms Amanda Luttrell, as well as a small group from the Ireland Australia Association.
It is estimated that there are about 10,000 Australians in Ireland at any one time, so Advance is delighted to have expanded its global footprint into the Irish market. We extend a very warm welcome to our new members in Ireland!
The Dublin event was followed by a much larger event in London on November 7, which was also a Queensland – Work Live Play Networking Reception.
Both events are part of a programme initiated by the Queensland Government to encourage expatriate Australians working overseas to return to Queensland. [Read the media release issued by the Queensland Government about this programme]
