Smart Futures Event 


ICT Ireland, the Irish Software Association and Engineer's Ireland, supported by Discover Science and Engineering, are proud to announce that this year's Smart Futures event will be held on May 19th at 8.30am at Engineers Ireland, Clyde Road Ballsbridge.



This event will communicate the breadth of jobs currently available in the technology sector and the career options that are available for students, jobseekers and those who wish to up-skill and re-skill. Since the beginning of 2010 more than 4,500 jobs have been created in the ICT sector, further highlighting how the technology sector continues to grow and flourish in the face of a global economic downturn.



This event seeks to highlight the opportunities available for those who are about to choose third level courses, those who are about to embark on their career and those who are seeking advice on how to secure employment in the sector.. With the development of Ireland as a hub for Cloud Computing and the digital games industry, Ireland is at a pivotal turning point where we have the chance to give our population the skills to become employable and to attain a fulfilling and enriching career in the technology sector. This event will highlight the skills needs of indigenous software companies and multinational companies. Experts will discuss their views on current employment opportunities and the future potential of the sector in Ireland.



The event will be chaired by Philip Sharpe of Danu and will be opened by two keynote speakers, Regina Moran, CEO of Fujitsu Ireland and Chair of ICT Ireland, and Sean Baker, Director of Gridstore. The keynote speakers will be followed by a panel discussion, including representatives from Google, Microsoft, Intel and Facebook.


This event is a key part of ICT Ireland and the ISA's 2011 Careers Campaign and will be attended by key decision makers and industry leaders.
