The Irish Early Career Awards 2017 winners were announced at a gala dinner on the 2nd of November in the Mansion House Dublin celebrating the achievements and contribution of outstanding young professionals in Ireland at the early stages of their careers.
Lecturer Barry Brophy – based in the school of mechanical engineering, who lectures technical communication across UCD – guested on the Ryan Tubridy show last week to talk about his new book, ‘Awful Presentations – Why We Have Them and How to Put Them Right’. Stand-in host Dave Fanning is known for his quick-fire so it was a breathless conversation that covered a lot of ground.
