Patrick Daly Interlinks Podcast


Introducing the New Institute of Sustainable Trade

In this episode of Interlinks we will be chatting with Simon McKeever, CEO of the Irish Exporters Association.

The Irish Exporters Association, or IEA as it is more commonly known, plays a significant role in support of the activities of all types of companies exporting from Ireland and Simon and I discussed that in some detail previously on Interlinks in 2019 in an episode that you can find in the podcast archive.

In this conversation however, Simon and I talk about something different, the recent launch of a new professional membership and education institute offering education, networking, and professional development opportunities to international trade professionals, with a focus on preparing for a more sustainable future.

This new body, the Institute of Sustainable Trade or IST has been conceived, developed, and launched this year by Simon and his team at the IEA. In this episode we discuss the purpose, objectives, target audience and rationale for the launch of the Institute of Sustainable Trade at this point in time.
