Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill to share his leadership skills

By Steven Beacom

Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill will give an insight into his leadership at a special event on Wednesday in Dungannon, where he will be joined by three other influential figures in local sport.

O'Neill, Ulster and Ireland rugby hero Tommy Bowe, Tyrone GAA legend Peter Canavan and Royal Portrush Golf Club manager Wilma Erskine will take part in a business conference to mark the 25th anniversary of Dungannon Enterprise Centre.

Adrian Logan will act as the compere and will ask the quartet to share what made them so successful in their respective fields and show how their sporting prowess and skills could transfer to the business world.

O'Neill made history by becoming the first manager to guide Northern Ireland to the finals of the European Championship and inspired the team into the knockout in France.

British and Irish Lion Bowe played a key role in helping Ireland achieve Grand Slam glory in the Six Nations in 2009.

Canavan was the Tyrone captain in 2003 when they won the All-Ireland Championship for the first time.

As manager of the iconic Royal Portrush Golf course, Erskine was heavily involved in the negotiations that saw the venue earn the right to stage The Open championship in 2019.
