Jennifer O'Brien to participate in AmCham Emerging Leaders Hackathon

At Fastnet we are very lucky to have an exceptional team of dedicated, passionate,  and entrepreneurial colleagues.  We place a strong emphasis on continuous personal and professional development.  Many of our colleagues are pursuing further educational qualifications and engaging with external stakeholders and organisations. We are delighted that Jennifer O’ Brien has been accepted to participate in the American Chamber of Commerce's Emerging Leaders Hackathon, taking place in DCU St. Patrick's Campus, on February 7 – 9.


The hackathon will gather 100 emerging leaders from its member companies to form multi-disciplinary, cross-sector teams to hack a solution to its #WorldofTalent Challenge:  

To create an innovative, practical and applicable solution that enhances Ireland as a great place to live and work – in more distributed, international, remote and dynamic environments - in the office, at home, and on the move.


Hosted in partnership with the DCU Ryan Academy and DCU Business School, the Hackathon provides a fantastic opportunity for nominated emerging leaders to hothouse their leadership skills, to network in a fun, yet competitive, environment and to create innovative solutions.  

​Kicking off at 2pm on Thursday 7 February, participants will have 2.5 days to pitch ideas, form teams, navigate the design thinking process and pitch a solution to the judging panel at 2pm on Saturday 9 February.  You can follow the discussion on Twitter by followiing ​#AMCHAMHACKERS. 

The winning team will raise the coveted American Chambers Hackathon perpetual trophy belt and have an opportunity to bring their idea to life with the support of the Future Factory at Dublin Airport.  


Jennifer has become a very valued member of our team.  We look forward to applying some of Jennifer’s learnings to our day to day engagement with our clients, candidates and contractors.
