Ringland brings his handling skills to MBA graduates' conference

The Master Business Administration Association of Ireland (MBAAI) and Open University (OUI) have confirmed British Lions legend and solicitor Trevor Ringland (centre) as speaker for their April conference on negotiation skills.

The event marks a new partnership agreement between the MBAAI and OUI, giving MBA graduates more opportunities to network, share knowledge and collaborate. The April event will involve contributors from finance, politics and management practice. Mr Ringland was joined by OU director John D'Arcy (left) and Gareth Quinn, chairman of the Northern Chapter of the MBAAI.

Mr Quinn said: "The MBAAI and our local business schools share a vision to develop and promote excellence and innovation within the local business community.

"More than 50,000 people from over 100 countries have benefitted from the OU's managerial courses. The presence of Europe's biggest business school in Northern Ireland can only support the advancement of skills and management practice within the region."
