online workshop

Trinity Business School (@TCDBusiness) has partnered with Ibec (@ibec_irl) , Ireland’s top business confederation in launching a free series of workshops and seminars for businesses to rebuild in the Covid economy.

The Reboot & Reignite series brings together top academics, business leaders and industry experts over a series of eight online workshops. The seminars are open to business leaders and owners to participate.

The series teases out important questions and challenges that are being faced by business organisations today.

Participants will engage with the panel in exploring these issues with the aim of taking away solutions and fresh innovative perspectives for their own organisations.

The Reboot and Reignite business campaign also will challenge business leaders around securing a pathway to recovery which is financially viable, and strategically competitive but also sustainable in terms of the environment and diversity.

Join with Trinity Business School, Ibec and leaders such as Jamie Heaslip, Dr Rhona Mahony, Bobby Healy, Dr Kara McGann in the seminar series which kicks off on the 22nd of September 2020.

The series will launch on 22nd September with its first seminar: How your business can thrive in a recessionary environment.

This session will be led by Trinity Business School’s Director of Executive Education, Michael Flynn, the seminar will give participants the opportunity to hear from Ibec CEO, Danny McCoy, Trinity Business School’s Dean and Chair of Business Studies, Professor Andrew Burke, CEO & Founder of Pharmapod, Leonora O’Brien, CEO & Founder of Manna, Bobby Healy.

The speakers will discuss how individuals can go about ‘reigniting’ their businesses using strategic and innovative thinking, and reimagining their business model in ways that ‘allow you to not waste a good crisis’.

 Professor Andrew Burke, Dean and Chair of Business Studies at Trinity Business School, says:

“In the current crisis we felt we had a responsibility to help our communities, to help an eco-system that we benefit from and provide support to businesses struggling after the hardships of a pandemic. In many ways, this became the inspiration for our ‘Reboot and Reignite’ campaign.

When the world went into lockdown, remote working proved to be a productive surprise. Output not only continued but digital innovation in business accelerated. International projects and meetings were propelled forward and international business travel was shown to be far less needed than ever imagined before.  So alongside discussing the key challenges that businesses will face, such as cashflow, thriving in an economic downturn and shaping digital strategies, the workshops will also focus on creating a sustainable recovery, taking into account ethical considerations, such as tackling the climate emergency and creating an inclusive society.” 

 Danny McCoy, CEO of Ibec, says:

As business leaders try to navigate the uncertainties thrown up by public health and economic disruptions, Ibec is delighted to join with Trinity Business School in finding collaborative and innovative thinking on how to reboot and reimagine our businesses

 Michael Flynn, Director of Executive Education at Trinity Business School, says:

“Arguably, across business we have seen two huge Covid impacts; slowdown and acceleration. The slowdown in the economy has been paralleled by the rapid acceleration of change in digital transformation, workplace, consumer and supply chain trends that were already underway. The pandemic has also highlighted the need for a more equitable and sustainable economy. This series brings together a dynamic group of leaders and experts who, together with participants, will try to make sense of these long term impacts and explore how leaders can adapt to the challenges they present”.

Providing trustworthy and positive Further Education news and views since 2003, we are a digital news channel with a mixture of written word articles, podcasts and videos. Our specialisation is providing you with a mixture of the latest education news, our stance is always positive, sector building and sharing different perspectives and views from thought leaders, to provide you with a think tank of new ideas and solutions to bring the education sector together and come up with new innovative solutions and ideas.

Every week FE News has over 200 articles and new pieces of content per week. We are a news channel providing the latest Further Education News, giving insight from multiple sources on the latest education policy developments, latest strategies, through to our thought leaders who provide blue sky thinking strategy, best practice and innovation to help look into the future developments for education and the future of work.

In May 2020, FE News had over 120,000 unique visitors according to Google Analytics and over 200 new pieces of news content every week, from thought leadership articles, to the latest education news via written word, podcasts, video to press releases from across the sector.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.


We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.


FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
