Ambassador Summer School-August 2016

Tangible Collage-Summer School-Version 2


After a very successful school last year, our 7th Tangible IrelandAmbassador Summer School will convene once again from 23-25 August 2016


Kilmallock, County Limerick provides a relaxed environment as business and civic leaders share their vision and participate in rigorous discussions about issues pertaining to progression towards a better world.

Identifying and cultivating Tangible Leaders across all sectors of society is the core ambition of the Ambassador Summer School. The focus is on:

  •  Developing skills and competence to deliver meaningful change
  •  Attracting and introducing like-minded leaders from Ireland and the Diaspora
  •  Using those relationships to increase the efficacy of our collective efforts

Visionary thinking and tangible leadership are paramount in Ireland and the world today. Tangible Ireland’s programming is designed to offer significant opportunities for individuals to develop their capacity for visionary leadership. Tangible’s commitment is to work with you supporting the achievement of extraordinary results in your professional and personal life.
