The evening starts at 6.30pm with a drinks reception followed by our keynote speaker Colonel Tim Collins OBE, a former officer in the British Army.
Tim is a naturally inspiring speaker and such was the notoriety of this particular address it is believed that a copy of the speech hung in the Oval Office of the White House. From the moment Tim Collins' speech to his men in Iraq was made public, Collins became a hero and an inspiration to world leaders and infantrymen alike.

Colonel Tim Collins OBE is a former officer in the British Army. He is best known for his role in the Iraq war and his rousing eve-of-battle speech in March 2003: “If you are ferocious in battle, remember to be magnanimous in victory".
Such was the notoriety of this particular address it is believed that a copy of the speech hung in the Oval Office of the White House. From the moment Tim Collins' speech to his men in Iraq was made public, Collins became a hero and an inspiration to world leaders and infantrymen alike.
An authority on teamwork, leadership and motivation, his speeches show a clear parallel between military problem solving and the challenges faced by leaders in any walk of life.
Tim's philosophy can be summed up in a handful of rules: -
1. Know what your objectives are and have a plan
2. Pick the right team
3. Make sure everyone has a role and that it has been communicated clearly to them
4. Understand your responsibilities as leader but learn to trust your team.
Some past testimonials from those that have heard Tim speak include:
‘Inspiring, funny and above all practical about what gets people committed'
‘In short he was fantastic; if we were a little younger some of us might be interested in joining the Royal Irish'
