Deirdre Hughes addressed the forum, comprising 80+ leaders from a wide variety of business backgrounds. She presented the main findings from a survey of young people in Northern Ireland before meeting with the Deputy Lord Mayor of Belfast Emmet McDonough-Brown who formally opened proceedings at the Titanic Exhibition Centre, Belfast. Over 8,000 young people from schools and colleges across N. Ireland will attend the event over two-days.
