The overwhelming message viewers took away from the recent NCFB webinar Lockdown to Recovery (Wednesday 17th June 2020) was pivot, adapt and embrace change during turbulent times.
A panel of experts including Professor Jim Davis of Utah State University, Financial & Legal Services Consultant John Sutherland and legal, financial and taxation experts from Beauchamps, AIB Bank and PwC Ireland tackled the subject of re-opening Irish firms following lockdown. An exclusive interview with Waterford-based women-led family business, Dooley’s Hotel, sparked discussion around the importance of adaptation, ‘pivoting’ and building upon the family’s legacy during the current global pandemic.
Tina & Margaret Darrer, 3rd generation leaders of Dooley’s Hotel spoke of the particular difficulties they faced in the hospitality industry when their business shut overnight and revenue ceased ahead of their peak season for international tourism. To watch the webinar in full, you can find the webcast on the National Centre for Family Business YouTube Channel.
