How did the IIBN help you to establish relationships in New York?
When I first moved to New York in 2006 I felt the networking opportunities offered by the IIBN were impressive and allowed me access to the Irish- American business community in New York. I had known a few of the IIBN Board Members for the past few years and have always been impressed by the group and what they achieve as a group.
Where is your favourite place to go both during the day and at night in New York?
That is a tough question as there is so much choice in this city, During the day I would have to say a stroll through Central Park is always welcome during the better weather. At night time I would say a walk around Soho, dinner on Spring St, followed by a night-cap one of the fantastic bars in the area.
