Barry Hill, Conor O'Connell and Audrey Burke-McCarthy

The CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development) Ireland Southern Region held a quiz night and social evening for members and friends at The Flying Enterprise, South Gate Bridge, Cork. At €20 for a table of four and some great spot prizes on offer, the event attracted a large crowd. Recruit Ireland kindly sponsored the evening and as well as providing some of the prizes. Additional spot prizes were donated by Fastnet Recruitment and The Irish Examiner.

Opening the event, Conor O’Connell (Chartered FCIPD) Chairman of the Southern Region Committee welcomed those in attendance and thanked the sponsors, Recruit Ireland, along with Audrey Burke-McCarthy and Niamh O’Driscoll of CIPD for their work in organising the event.

The quiz consisted of nine rounds of questions along with one member from each table taking a challenge to increase the team scores by trying their hand at pitch & putt. This along with very humorous answers to some of the questions, all added to the fun and enjoyment of the evening.

Staff from VHI, VMware, Fastnet Recruitment, Careerwise were among the prize winners on the night.

The event provided a great opportunity for members to network in an informal setting and was enjoyed by all.

Our next event will be a TYCO sponsored presentation on Employee Engagement and will take place on Wednesday 4th February 2015 @ 7:30am at Maryborough House Hotel, Cork. Notification will be sent to members early in the New Year.
