Most of us wonder what kind of legacy we will leave behind, but what about those leaders who went before us and whose legacies continue on? And what about the leaders responsible for stewarding those legacies?
Our last Breakfast Club of the year will see us visit the beautiful Nano Nagle Centre in Cork on Thursday the 14th December 2023 from 9.30 to 11am.
We regularly hear people talk about the sort of legacy they would like to leave, but every day, particularly in our sector, we are actually continuing the vision of those who have gone before us. People who saw issues in society that they wanted to address and left those structures behind them. But while their names and missions live on, new leaders take the reins and lead the next phase of the journey.
The Leadership Academy Breakfast Clubs are available to anyone in the community, voluntary, nonprofit, or social enterprise space at any level, from volunteer to CEO, who wants to attend.The events are free and delivered both online and in-person to allow for accessibility. Series 1 saw over 400 people attend our events.
Our attendee profiles show an ongoing mix of people at varying stages of their leadership journey from emerging leaders and young people considering a future career in the sector to senior leaders with years of experience.

“For me personally, the benefits to the Breakfast Clubs have been many but key are the value of think-time, the cross sectional networking and having a product to offer staff looking to consider upskilling – in this regard promoting the breakfast club internally in Trócaire, in particular to my own team, is very relevant to the area of continuous leadership learning and development.”

The Breakfast Clubs created a networking space that feels open to all leaders, future and established, so that we can meet and make connections. Sharon encourages the early career professionals in the room to be the leads for discussion and she connects people with such ease. I have found TLA events extremely interesting and engaging, having enjoyed the the space to network freely. I would encourage anyone who is thinking of attending a Leadership Academy breakfast to attend and get involved.
