ITBA NEXT GEN CHAIRPERSON ENCOURAGES ALL TO ATTEND EXPO`18

ITBA Next generation is the junior wing of the ITBA and its chairman Eleanor Dunne is working hard to put together an excellent programme for the forthcoming EXPO.ITBA EXPO 18 provides a platform for the Next Generation to make an impression on the bloodstock industry. We have been given the opportunity to sell ourselves.

A lot of discussion has taken place in recent months about succession planning and nurturing of the next generation. We hear about problems with staffing and a lack of career development and the need for a proactive recruitment drive. The Next Generation has put together a very impressive panel of young trailblazers who have made a name for themselves in the racing and breeding industry. I have asked them to look at these issues among others and come up with an action plan that I can take to our committee to implement. All these panellists have great stories to tell and this event should not be missed. David Jennings will have the role as master of ceremonies.

From the serious to the competitive I expect sparks to be flying during the industry table quiz. There are some great prizes on offer and quizmaster Noel Hayes will have his work cut out to keep everybody from looking at their phones. If you want to enter a team you can rock up on Friday at 11.30am to register.

The ITBA has included a category for the under 30s for the Dragons Den competition on Saturday and the entries were impressive. The two lucky finalists Simon Hillary and Pierce Dargan from Equine Medi Records and Fiona O’Dwyer from My Equine PA will display their wares before the judges on Saturday morning.“My ambition as chairman of the Next Generation is to encourage people to get involved in our association and help them on the journey of choosing a pathway in the industry. I encourage all young people who have an interest in the industry to attend EXPO ’18 and see the opportunities this great industry has to offer"
