Values, Leadership

LIFT – Leading Ireland’s Future Together is a not-for-profit initiative that has been established by Joanne Hession, owner and managing director of The Entrepreneurs Academy.

LIFT has been established to do two things:

Firstly, it is going to drive a debate around character. This means asking both what we should expect from ourselves as individuals, and also what we as a society should expect from others. Secondly, it aims to help develop a generation of leaders of ethical character, through activities within our education system, sports organisations, business, the arts and the wider society.

The Entrepreneurs Academy is one of the Inaugural Founding Partners of LIFT. 

This has involved The Entrepreneurs Academy Living LIFT through roundtables to build an environment of respect, honesty and trust and enhance our culture of positive leadership. It has also involved us Growing LIFT by being an advocate for LIFT in our community and our network, and as a part of our CSR efforts.  We have also been involved in Building LIFT to drive social change across Ireland by seconding staff to LIFT’s ‘Expert Development Teams’ and helping fund the launch and some LIFT activities.  Finally we are delighted to help with Hothousing LIFT, enabling LIFT to use our offices and meeting rooms to help LIFT bring LIFT teams and partners together.

In line with our belief in, and commitment to, values based leadership and the vision and mission of LIFT Ireland, we are delighted to support LIFT Ireland activities as well as live LIFT within our organisation.  If you would like to learn more about our partnership with LIFT please contact Lorraine Bowen
