Registration is closed

A special treat to have an established author kick off our Discovery Lunch for 2013! Helen Thorpe published Just Like Us in which she follows the lives of four girls who are high school seniors in Denver; all are children of illegal immigrants, two of them have papers, and all face similar issues in dealing with life. The Washington Post named it one of the books of the year for 2009. Now in its 10th printing, the book has sold nearly 20,000 copies and Helen spends much of her time doing book talks around the country.

Ms. Thorpe is preparing a talk just for the Irish Network, and we are delighted to welcome her. We know her talk will be riveting, given her expertise in subject areas especially relevant to Irish Americans.

Bonus for all attendees!
Our friends at Connect Ireland will be in attendance and will be chatting with lunch attendees after Ms. Thorpe's presentation. CI's Head of Global Partnerships, Annette Mahon, will be discussing “How You Can Be Rewarded for Introducing Ireland” This is a global referral program with incentives where anybody who introduces a company that is expanding internationally could potentially earn a financial reward from the Irish Government. The money can be used personally, donated to a charity or waived as a mark of support for Ireland.

February's Discovery Lunch is a double the fun!
