Diane was appointed Chairwoman of the Future Leaders Board in January 2017, having sat on the Board in 2016 organizing events, managing communications as well building and supporting member to member networking opportunities. She was first introduced to the Future Leaders Board shortly after moving to New York in 2015, after participating in the IIBN’s successful mentoring program, Irish Executive Mentoring Program, IEMP. Having lived and worked in a host of different countries, Diane has found it important to maintain close connections with Ireland and the Irish diaspora, both on a personal and professional level. This has instilled a sincere commitment to help and support the IIBN’s members in building opportunistic relationships with Irish and American business communities.
