Sponsoring LIFT

LIFT Ireland Awards Burren SmokehouseHave you heard of LIFT Ireland? If you have, you will know that LIFT stands for "Leading Ireland's Future Together". It was founded as a not-for-profit initiative by a personal friend of Birgitta's, leadership expert Joanne Hession along with her brother, David Hession, and well-loved TV celebrity Sonya Lennon of Dress for Success Dublin.

It is an organisation that aims to increase the level of positive leadership in Ireland.

Volunteers around the country teach the 10 core values that make good leadership: Listening, Positive Attitude, Respect, Competence, Honesty & Integrity, Empathy & Understanding, Accountability, Dedication & Determination, Resilience and Innovation & Adaptability.

And for all these categories, the LIFT facilitators who are all volunteers, are to nominate someone who in their opinion represents one of the ten values.

We are proud to announce that the Burren Smokehouse is sponsoring the "Positive Attitude" category. The winners of all categories will be announced at an awards ceremony in October 2020.

Here two short videos about it:
