CONTENTS Message from Gerald Hurley, Waterford Chamber

W

elcome to the fifth issue of Network magazine – it’s hard to believe it’s been a year since we introduced this offering and what a busy year it has been. In the past few months we have hosted a number of large events, including welcoming An Tánaiste Simon Coveney and IDA Chairman Frank Ryan as speakers at our Annual Dinner. We also launched our second Regional Leaders Programme, which has seen a 40% increase this year, which is certainly encouraging and it is again supported by Bausch + Lomb and Waterford Chamber Skillnet, with additional support this year from WIT. Our Toys4.0Engineers event also saw a significant increase in terms of exhibitors and footfall, and plans are already underway to grow it again next year. Strengthening our region has to be a major focus for us all going forward and we look to the new year with a determination and optimism. Together we can achieve that – not least through advancing the Technological University, the North Quays development, our Regional Airport, to name a few. We are working closely with the other regional cities and Chambers to present a collective voice to Government and our efforts in this regard will continue in earnest in 2019. In this issue we look at Why Waterford? As the Capital City of the Region, we have to have high aspirations. The days of the ‘poor us’ attitude have long passed and in our capacity as leaders, as recognised by

Government and the other counties within the region, we must strive forward with a positive attitude. There are so many reasons why Waterford is a great place to live, work, invest in and do business and through the following pages, many of these will be identified. We are appealing to the whole business community to step up to the mark and be ambassadors for Waterford. We don’t need negativity. What we need is for all to collaborate, promote and share information to enable Waterford be recognised internationally as an area for investment. Minister Coveney can see Waterford will lead the region, so now we must believe it too. By working and collaborating this can be achieved and we will put every effort into achieving the best for Waterford on behalf of our members and as the largest business representative organisation. Finally, with Christmas almost upon us, I take the opportunity to thank you all for your continued support, be it attending or sponsoring events, getting involved in our Policy Advisory Panels or advertising in Network. Wishing you all a wonderful and peaceful Christmas and together we will look forward to a prosperous New year. Gerald Hurley CEO, Waterford Chamber

Working together to drive the business agenda  By KATHRYN KIELY, President, Waterford Chamber

W

elcome to the latest edition of Network, the last for 2018. As we begin to savour and enjoy the wonderful sights, sounds and festivities of Winterval, its timely to reflect on some of the key highlights of Chamber’s activities since our last edition. The vibrancy and energy of the engineering and technology sector in Waterford was very clearly visible with more than 75 companies exhibiting and showcasing their products, services and many career opportunities at the Toys4.0Engineers Conference & Expo hosted by Chamber and WIT in October. Again this year we have had huge interest in the Regional Leaders Programme with more than 70 participants signing up this Autumn. Such is the importance of

06

developing the next generation of leaders that more than 35 mentors and business leaders have again committed to giving their time and expertise to supporting the development of talent within our business community. Access to talent and the continuous need to support professional development of employees is top of the agenda for so many of our members. Waterford Chamber Skillnet is a key partner in enabling companies to address this challenge. In the last year Waterford Chamber Skillnet delivered more than 9,500 training days supporting more than 1,440 learners and are considered one of the most successful Skillnet Networks in the country. The recent integration of Tramore Chamber of Tourism and Commerce into Waterford

Chamber is a welcome move and we have given our assurances to the business community in Tramore that we will work in earnest for the betterment of the town. The recent allocation of €1.35 million for the Urban Regeneration Plan is the first step towards invigorating the town centre. In an effort to promote a ‘shop local’ ethos this Christmas we are actively seeking businesses in Tramore to accept the Waterford Gift Voucher and have also launched our ‘Spirit of Tramore’ project, which highlights the faces behind those all-important businesses which enhance our community and their thoughts on living and working in Tramore. We are also proudly supporting the Christmas Light Festival at Lafcadio Hearn Japanese Gardens this Christmas and encourage

everyone to get out and visit this incredible spectacle during the festive period. One of my personal highlights this year was welcoming An TĂĄnaiste, Minister Simon Coveney to Waterford as guest speaker at our Annual Dinner. While his insight into Brexit and the challenges it presents was exceptional, it was his belief and enthusiasm for the growth and development of our region which was the most encouraging takeaway. He was emphatic in his belief that Waterford can lead the region. This was reiterated by Mr Frank Ryan, Chairman of IDA Ireland who also addressed the 300-strong audience and he assured us the IDA were committed to the region, a message further reinforced in the following week with the very welcome announcement of

NETWORK • Q4 2018

additional investment and jobs at Bausch + Lomb. As we look to 2019, Waterford Chamber is in the process of developing its strategic plan for the next three years. We are and will be in the coming months engaging with members in the development of this plan. Your views and insights are critical to how we set our ambitions, shape our priorities and continue to develop our services, programme of events and activities for the future. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our CEO Gerald Hurley and the Chamber team and Waterford Chamber Skillnet for their tremendous work throughout the year, focussed on delivering a valued service to our members and ambitious for the future development of Waterford. Finally I would like to thank you,

our members and sponsors, for your continued support throughout 2018. I wish you and your families a very happy, enjoyable and safe Christmas. In the year ahead I look forward to working with you to drive forward the business agenda of Waterford with confidence and determination. Happy Christmas and enjoy the read!

COVER STORY

Waterford will lead the South East An Tánaiste and Minster for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Simon Coveney TD, made an inspiring address at the recent Waterford Chamber Annual Dinner, offering his thoughts on Brexit, the Technological University and how Waterford needs to build a city of scale. Here’s what he had to say.

L

adies and gentlemen, good evening and it’s my pleasure to be here in Waterford tonight and to be asked as Tánaiste to address this Annual Dinner of Waterford Chamber. As we’ve heard from other speakers already – “Think Global, Act Local” – is your clarion call out of tonight’s event. It’s an attitude I like, and one that I think defines the formula that is present whenever we get something just right in Ireland. From our tourist towns to the IDA trying to attract the biggest firms in the world – “Think Global, Act Local” – is present in the successes we see. We have all the ambition of a global island married with all the security and heart of a local community. Tonight there are more than 300 business people in attendance so

you don’t need me to tell you about the challenges and hurdles we still need to overcome in Ireland and Waterford in 2018. However, I will take it on myself to highlight some of the progress and successes you have delivered to Waterford in the last few years. Seven years ago on this night the unemployment rate in Waterford was about to hit 18%; Tonight the unemployment rate in Waterford is 7.2%. That one statistic is a downward line on a chart but on the ground it is the very lifeblood that has brought Waterford – and indeed Ireland – back from the brink. That statistic is the difference in thousands of families’ lives. The fall in unemployment is not because those without a job left your county and our country. On the contrary we continue to see new jobs created and people

returning. And despite some predictions earlier this year that the recovery in the South East had plateaued – recent announcements and votes of confidence in Waterford like the plant opening at West Pharma and the two-fold expansion at Eurofins Biopharma in Dungarvan have created hundreds more well-paid jobs. I single these out in the context of the creation of a “Pharma/ Medtech” cluster in the county with others like Sanofi, Teva, GSK, EirGen Pharma, and Nypro. The contribution from these firms continues to have a multiplier effect that enables the services, tourism and hospitality sector to expand. You know this, you’re seeing this. The government creates the conditions for this growth, but it is you who not only create – but also cont. page 10

maintain – the jobs and community around them. As a government we need to sustain it and build on it. You need leadership and a direction of travel if you are to truly deliver on “Think Global, Act Local”. You need the country to have a plan. Earlier this year the government launched that plan with Project Ireland 2040. At its core is the realisation that the dominance of Dublin needs to be addressed if Ireland is to have a quality of life and employment for the extra million people that could live here in 20 years – not to mention the 4.7 million here already. Project Ireland 2040 recognises that Waterford is the principal urban centre in the South East and is unique in having a network of large and strong regional urban centres in close proximity within each of the surrounding counties. From a national perspective, a stronger Waterford City will lead the development of the wider South East, which has experienced slower economic recovery than the national average in recent years. The key challenge for Waterford is to build scale and enhance urban quality through employment-led growth. That is what we are seeing.

10

As well as many policies that will benefit the country as a whole – Project Ireland 2040 has €4 billion of funds for good ideas. The one fund that has really landed in our consciousness is the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund. The idea behind it is that it backs projects to grow our cities and major towns and the fund is well resourced with €2 billion to grant. Waterford is full of good ideas – there are 8.2 hectares of good ideas waiting to be exploited on the city’s North Quays – and I’m reliably informed that ambitious and detailed submissions have been made to the Urban Fund. The first round of grants will be announced in the coming weeks and while no place will get everything it asks for, it is important to act with the grants that are given and keep applying in future rounds. The plans for the Strategic Development Zone on the North Quays are impressive and I am hopeful that Waterford will have those plans backed. I also have my fingers crossed for a few bob for Cork. Before I move on from Project Ireland 2040 I do want to say a few words on a Technological

University for the South East of the country. It’s a no-brainer, we need to do it. Significant government supports are in place for the TUSE idea and I hope the consortium can come together to continue to drive the project forward. I read in the newspapers last Sunday that for the €200 million of funding granted to WIT, in ten years the payback to the economy of Ireland is estimated to be at least €1 billion. That’s a very healthy five-fold return. I also want to congratulate the staff of WIT for a recent jump in the rankings of 3rd level institutions. Ladies and gentlemen, I want to say a few words about Brexit. It is the biggest danger facing our country and society and it is not of our making. The first thing I want to emphasise is that the European Union is a home that Ireland has helped build since first joining in 1973. I think it is important to emphasise this point to business leaders like yourselves who are seeking new trade partnerships and who need stability and predictability in the connections you are building. Throughout the complex Brexit process, there has been unwavering

NETWORK • Q4 2018


solidarity from our partners in the remaining 26 Member States. This was confirmed again by leaders at the October European Council. I hear it in all my private meetings all over Europe and those same leaders have been consistently clear with the UK that there can be no Withdrawal Agreement without an operational and legally binding backstop to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland. EU Chief Negotiator Michel Barnier fully understands our unique concerns and supports our key priorities, particularly those around the importance of protecting the Good Friday Agreement. Mr. Barnier has our complete confidence in his ongoing negotiations on the EU’s behalf. The Irish Government has no hidden agenda regarding Northern Ireland. We didn’t ask for Brexit and we didn’t want it, and questions around the border only arise because of Brexit. We have been very clear on the status of Northern Ireland throughout the Brexit process. The Good Friday Agreement represents the fundamental interests of everyone on this island and the

Irish Government is a co-guarantor of that Agreement. We will never do anything that departs from it, and this is why we believe it is so important to avoid the return of a hard border on the island. Time is moving on, however, and we need to make decisive progress urgently. It is very welcome that the European Council stands ready to meet again in the event that Mr. Barnier reports that decisive progress has been made. We are not there yet on a deal but first thing Monday morning I will be in Brussels meeting with Michel Barnier. As businesses leaders I – and the government – need you to continue the preparations you are making for Brexit. We don’t have all the answers while a deal is outstanding but we do have first steps that businesses can take and our state agencies have had tens of millions of taxpayers' money pumped into them so that they can help you. I am encouraged to hear of the ongoing success and level of engagements with any ‘Getting Ireland Brexit Ready’ event that is held in Waterford including the Enterprise Ireland event earlier

this week. Enterprise Ireland, Local Enterprise Offices and sponsors here this evening Waterford Chamber Skillnet, will be essential in training Waterford business in any issues like customs that arise because of Brexit.” The Tánaiste concluded by paying reference to Armistice Day, as he was due to represent the government in Belfast that same weekend. “I hope the moment will focus politicians' minds on the fact that challenges like Brexit pale in comparison to the horrors of the past. After Brexit the people of the UK will still be our neighbours, friends, key allies and family. The European Union is one of the most successful peace projects in human history. The Good Friday Agreement between the UK and Ireland is held up around the world as what can emerge between neighbours in conflict. The government I am part of is fighting to protect that peace. Thank you.”

The Good Friday Agreement is held up around the world as what can emerge between neighbours in conflict.

5 cities. 8 principles. A Shared Voice. C

ity Regions Ireland is a new group bringing together the Chambers of Commerce of Waterford, Cork, Dublin, Galway and Limerick – Ireland’s 5 cities as identified by the National Planning Framework, Ireland 2040. City Regions Ireland met recently with the Minister for Housing, Planning and Urban Development Eoghan Murphy TD and members of his department to outline what is needed to safeguard an ambitious urban future for Ireland’s City Regions. In one voice, the 5 cities have devised a document detailing 8 principles, spanning infrastructure, housing, and planning to inform policy-making, maximise growth, and tackle the common issues and opportunities in our urban regions. Here we look at a summary of the 8 principles and how they can help Waterford.

14

1. PLAN FOR CORE DENSITY & REDUCE URBAN SPRAWL There needs to be an overall change in the planning process on all levels toward improved expediency and clarity in decision making. Furthermore, development projects for housing in urban areas that have been identified as suitable for redevelopment need to be acted on efficiently and in a transparent planning process. The current planning application process is not fit for purpose for effective and timely city planning and development 2. INCREASE HOUSING SUPPLY Housing is an issue across all 5 cities. Planning in relation to housing needs to reflect the population and demographic requirements of cities and recognise the stage in development of each particular city. A targeted

design policy around city living with defined development standards, higher density on defined transport routes is by far a better and proactive solution to growing our cities. The solution of pushing a blanket density is not working outside Dublin and will only further slow the delivery of homes in the immediate future. Our urban centres need to be able to house their student populations. 3. SUPPORT INTERNATIONAL CONNECTIVITY THROUGH OUR PORTS AND AIRPORTS A port is a vital international connection; the ports located in cities need to be classed as Tier 1 nationally. Investing in the capacity of the 5 cities’ central airports and regional airports in service of a city, including in runways and working to open new routes for ease of

NETWORK • Q4 2018


connectivity is essential to attract both foreign and domestic industry to establish in our cities. 4. DEVELOP TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE TO CONNECT OUR CITIES Investing in inter-city transport links will foster greater economic collaboration between Ireland’s cities, as well as greater links for tourism. As the economic engines of their regions, the cities need to have direct road and rail connection to one another. 5. INVEST IN PUBLIC TRANSPORT Public transport routes connecting essential parts of a city have a positive impact on local businesses and social inclusion, retailers, restaurants etc. as well as tourism to areas of local interest. 6. CREATE DESTINATIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION Each of our cities needs to be home to the best in third level education that the country can offer. For our cities to thrive, be innovative, forward-thinking and vibrant we must ensure their institutions of higher education are of the best standards. Considerable investment in the overall capacity of our universities, and in capital

equipment and upgrading of laboratories and research facilities is necessary. Higher Education Institutions with capabilities for research and innovation have the power to attract new industries and investment to a city, and have the power to create new indigenous industry. A student population adds to a city, making it dynamic and contributing to the local economy. In order for this to be of most benefit, our third level institutions need investment in public transport so they can be well-connected to the rest of the urban area. 7. REJUVENATE OUR CITY CENTRES City centres need a mix of retail, office, residential, green spaces and public realm and to be well-connected through a public transport system. They need to be attractive, safe and vibrant, by day and by night. Measures to rejuvenate city centres and develop a vibrant atmosphere should include tapping into the potential of residential apartments above shop fronts.

suffered from underinvestment and our cities are now operating at a high water capacity. If our cities are to support industry and population growth, our water supply, wastewater and sewage treatment systems need investment. Waste management systems need to be fit for purpose and need to be forward-thinking in approach for the future needs of our cities. Investment in moving towards a more circular economy with our waste management is essential. City Regions Ireland is working for the common goal of ensuring the country’s 5 cities are developed sustainably as the national and regional economic engines and to support a population projected in the National Planning Framework to grow by 25% in Dublin and 50% in the other four cities out to 2040.

8. MANAGE WATER AND WASTE The water supply to our cities is in need of investment and sustainable solutions. Our water system has

Allied Irish Banks, p.l.c and AIB Mortgage Bank are regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland. These are standard warnings about your payments and your rates that we must give you: Warning: The cost of your monthly repayments may increase.

Warning: If you do not keep up your repayments you may lose your home.

Warning: If you do not meet the repayments on your loan, your account will go into arrears. This may affect your credit rating, which may limit your ability to access credit in the future. Warning: You may have to pay charges if you pay off a fixed-rate loan early. WARNING: YOUR HOME IS AT RISK IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP PAYMENTS ON A MORTGAGE OR ANY OTHER LOAN SECURED ON IT. THE PAYMENT RATES ON THIS HOUSING LOAN MAY BE ADJUSTED BY THE LENDER FROM TIME TO TIME. (Applies to variable rates only) The amount you can borrow depends on how much you can afford to repay, typically no more than 35% of your disposable income but will depend on your individual circumstances. Factors considered include your income, financial status and evidence of your ability to repay (including capacity to repay at higher interest rates). Maximum loan amount is 90% of the property value. Minimum loan amount is €25,000. Loans not available to people under 18. You must provide proof of income. Mortgage loans must be secured on the property. Mortgage protection and home insurance are required. You must pay for a valuation of your property. You must use a valuer from the list of AIB approved valuers and the valuation must be dated within 4 months of drawdown. Legal fees will apply, these fees will be determined by negotiation with your solicitor. A typical €100,000, 20 year mortgage for an Owner Occupier Residential Property with LTV>50%<=80% will have a variable interest rate of 2.95% and APRC 3.01%, and 240 monthly repayments of €551.74. If the interest rate does not vary during the term of the mortgage, the total cost of credit i.e. the total amount repayable less than the amount of the loan would be €32,691.88 (inclusive of €150.00 and €65.00 valuation report fees and security release fee of €60.00). The total amount repayable would be €132,691.88. The effect of a 1% increase in interest rates for such a mortgage will add €50.93 to the monthly repayments. *Source Bonkers.ie June 2018.

Domestic and Local ECONOMIC OUTLOOK  By JIM POWER, Economist

F

ollowing on from a very solid year in 2017, this year has also proved very positive for the Irish economy. It is likely that for 2018 as whole, economic growth as measured by gross domestic product (GDP) is likely to have expanded by at least 7 per cent. Of course, Irish GDP is seriously exaggerated by the balance sheet activities of segments of the multi-national base, but when adjusted for such anomalies, the underlying growth performance was solid. The growth performance was pretty broadly based, with most sectors making a solid contribution to the growth backdrop. Consumer spending continued to expand, but it is worth noting that the personal sector is still behaving in a relatively cautious manner. Consumer confidence fell to a 46-month low in October reflecting this caution. While the volume of retail sales increased by 3.8 per cent in the first 10 months of the year, the growth in value terms was lower at just 2.8 per cent. This reflects the fact that retailers are still dealing with a consumer that is resistant to higher prices and is seeking value for money. This consumer behaviour is due to the fact that personal finances are still stretched due to low wage growth for the past decade; a high personal tax burden; uncertainty relating to the impact of Brexit; and rapidly escalating house prices and rents that are soaking up disposable income, leaving less money available for other discretionary spending. On the export side of the

18

economy, the value of exports expanded by a very strong 12.2 per cent in the first nine months of the year. A note of caution is that exports to the UK were down by 4 per cent, reflecting slower growth in the UK economy and the weakness of sterling. The most positive feature of the overall economic performance in 2018 was the labour market. In the year to September, the number of people at work in the economy increased by 66,700 or 3 per cent, taking total employment in the economy up to a new high of 2.27 million. 2019 Looking ahead to 2019, it is clear that the economy will be carrying considerable momentum forward from 2018. However, the challenges and risks for the coming year are quite obvious, assuming of course nothing unforeseen happens. The key domestic challenges include: • The imbalance between demand and supply in the housing market, which is putting considerable upward pressure on house prices and rents. It appears likely that house price inflation will moderate in 2019 due to affordability issues, but rents look set to remain under considerable upward pressure. Housing supply needs to increase. • The pressure to increase expenditure on public services, particularly health, will remain strong and will pressurise the public finances. Ireland still has a dangerously high level of Government debt. • As the economy steadily moves

towards full employment, wage pressures are likely to intensify and the recruitment and retention of workers will become a bigger challenge for all activities. EXTERNAL RISKS The key external risks and challenges are likely to include: • The outlook for the global economy in 2019 looks more challenging. Growth in the US, UK and Euro Zone is likely to continue to ease. In the emerging world, a number of countries are in trouble, including Argentina, Venezuela, Brazil, Turkey and Pakistan. • President Trump’s proclivity towards trade protectionism does pose a significant potential threat to the global economy. Hopefully sanity will prevail. • Global geopolitics look very risky at the moment, with Russia, and the rise of the right across the EU a significant challenge. • The possibility of higher official European Central Bank (ECB) interest rates later in 2019. The ECB stated six months ago a belief that rates would not have to be increased until the end of the summer of 2019, but it is possible based on recent slower growth in the Euro Zone, that rates might just remain on hold throughout 2019. • Corporate debt levels are very high in China and the US. • Global corporation tax developments have the potential to undermine Ireland’s foreign direct investment (FDI) model. • After a very strong nine-year

NETWORK • Q4 2018


‘bull run’ global equity markets look vulnerable. • Whatever the eventual outcome with Brexit, it does pose a considerable threat to the UK and Irish economies. There are always risk factors out there that will need careful watching, but on balance it does appear that growth in Ireland in 2019 looks set to be softer thann 2018, but a reasonably strong level of economic activity still looks the most likely outcome. However, we do need to manage the economy and the public finances in a very prudent manner. LOCAL & REGIONAL ECONOMY In Waterford and the South East, the economic environment has definitely improved on the back of the stronger national economy. However, it is clear that there are still considerable economic challenges. In the third quarter of 2018, the South East had the highest regional level of unemployment at 8.6 per cent of the labour force, compared to a national average of 6 per cent. The most positive development in Waterford in recent years has

NETWORK • Q4 2018

been the unmitigated success of the Waterford Greenway. It has transformed Dungarvan and Kilmacthomas, but to date the impact on Waterford City has been less obvious. However, the potential looks very significant. The tourism offering in County Waterford is now as good if not better than any other county in the country. We just need to continue to market the beautiful county aggressively. For Waterford and the South East, all stakeholders will need to work hard and work together to help the region exploit its real potential. Key ingredients for success will have to include a proper port strategy in the South East; the development of Waterford Airport; the development of the North Quays; and the upgrading of the status of WIT. Waterford City in particular needs to send out a strong message that it is a probusiness environment that is open for business.

New wheels in motion at GARRETT G

arrett Motion Inc. (NYSE: GTX), a cutting-edge technology provider that enables vehicles to become safer, more connected, efficient and environmentally friendly, is now an independent company following its successful spinoff from Honeywell. Garrett’s Waterford plant is located within the IDA Industrial Estate on Cork Road, and will celebrate its 40 years of operations in 2019. “Garrett has gone through many changes in its 40-year history since we were originally called Garrett Ireland Limited before becoming part of the Honeywell group,” said Plant Manager Pat MacNamara. “We are proud to have hundreds of employees in Waterford manufacturing turbo wheels for the automotive industry that are shipped all around the world. Our customers include all the main car manufactures: BMW, Audi, PSA, Ford, Volvo, and Nissan among others. Chances are most turbocharged cars in the city use a part made from right here in our Waterford plant. We are very proud to be part of the Garrett – Advancing Motion brand and to be moving forward as a dynamic, new company.”

Garrett CEO and President Olivier Rabiller led Garrett’s executive leadership team in marking a new era in the more than 60-year history of the company by ringing the opening bell above the trading floor at the New York Stock Exchange on 1st October 2018. “This is a memorable milestone for a company that already celebrates more than six decades as an automotive technology pioneer, inventor and innovator,” Rabiller said. “We have a robust and talented organisation of world-class people, and we have established a strong position for providing differentiated technologies that are in demand. “In leveraging our rich heritage as Honeywell Transportation Systems, we have evolved Garrett into a new dynamic and forwardthinking company. The Garrett name has been synonymous with advancing motion by revolutionising turbocharger technology that has become foundational to modern internal combustion engines. Now, as an independent company, Garrett will vigorously pursue opportunities to provide electric boosting and automotive software solutions addressing

IDA confirms regional commitment A

s IDA Ireland continues to push Waterford and the South East in terms of foreign direct investment, speaking at the Waterford Chamber Annual Dinner, Chairman Frank Ryan was clear that “effective collaboration is the secret to success in the 21st century”. Paying special reference to the ongoing agenda of the Technological University, Mr Ryan said: “Education is a Key Enabler of Growth. Today, merit enables progress. Ireland is a developed economy and in a developed economy knowledge is power. All citizens have a major contribution to make to the Ireland of tomorrow, to a shared prosperity, based on a shared responsibility. “In the years ahead the role each of us will play in the workplace and in the Irish economy will largely be determined by the knowledge we possess and the skills we develop. “So education and knowledge will not only directly impact

22

employment prospects but in a collective sense will determine the very future economic performance of Waterford and the South East Region. Consequently, the future of Waterford Institute of Technology is fundamental to economic development in the region.” In light of the theme of the evening being ‘Think Global, Act Local’, Mr Ryan spoke of the importance of existing and emerging markets, saying, “We live today in an interconnected world. Our future is tied to the economies of other countries. “Over the next decade our economic future will be primarily linked to the economy of the United Kingdom, the United States of America and the European Union. “But Ireland’s world is changing and over the next several decades our economic and cultural relations with the People’s Republic of China, India, Japan and many other countries will increase and

intensify. Ireland continues to attract foreign direct investment. Total direct employment in IDA supported companies now stands at over 210,000 people, the highest on record. Exports from Enterprise Ireland supported companies now exceeds €21 billion, the highest on record. “We must continue to reach out to the international community to strengthen existing relationships and to build these new partnerships. Mutual respect must continue to be the currency of our engagement.” Mr Ryan commended the leadership being shown by Waterford Chamber in terms of driving collaboration through industry engagement and networking. “I wish to assure Waterford Chamber of the continued active commitment of IDA Ireland to the attraction of foreign direct investment to Waterford and the South East Region,” he concluded.

NETWORK • Q4 2018


Taking extracts from Mr Ryan’s address to over 300 business people at the Annual Dinner, Lynda Lawton looks at what exactly is the IDA remit and what they are doing for the region. WHAT IS IDA IRELAND? IDA Ireland is a national development agency and our mandate from Government is to attract foreign direct investment to every region of Ireland. Simply put, we work to attract overseas companies to Ireland, to help them achieve a smooth, fast and successful setup and in due course the expansion of their operations in Ireland. CLIENT COMPANIES IN THE SOUTH EAST The portfolio of IDA supported companies in Waterford and the South East is hugely significant and today the region has become a key strategic base for global companies of scale. These valued client companies continue to expand operations and extend and deepen the global mandate they fulfil for their parent companies. Waterford is home to thirty seven companies, directly supported by IDA Ireland, employing 6,850 people. Companies like Sanofi, Teva, OPKO Eirgen, Eurofins, West Pharmaceuticals, Bausch & Lomb, Honeywell, Sun Life Financial but to name a few. The South East region is home to seventy five companies, directly supported by IDA Ireland, employing 14,785 people. During 2017, IDA client companies in the South East increased employment by 9.2% being the highest percentage growth rate across all regions in Ireland. REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT Back in 2015 IDA Ireland announced its current five-year strategy. For the first time, this new strategy set ambitious investment

NETWORK • Q4 2018

targets for each region across Ireland, a 30% - 40% increase of investments in each region. In 2015, the Government announced that it would support the new IDA strategy with a dedicated €150 million property investment plan spread out over five years. IDA commenced this build programme here in Waterford building the first of our Advanced Technology Buildings in Butlerstown. OPKO Healthcare, who many of you know as Eirgen Pharma, purchased that building. Such is the commitment of IDA Ireland to Waterford that construction on a second Advance Technology Unit began in June 2018. We look forward to marketing this property through our global network to attract more business to Waterford. The additional funding from Government for property has also been used to make investments in utility intensive sites in regional locations. Not too far from here in Belview, IDA recently acquired more lands beside our existing

business park on which the Glanbia infant formula plant is located. We are currently undertaking Master Planning of this new site. The South East region has an extremely strong value proposition and it is for this reason that we have been successful in attracting new investment to the region. Driving investment to regional locations is at the very core of the strategic mission of the Agency. Since January 2015 IDA Ireland has announced twenty investments for the South East and those investments have an associated 1,781 jobs. Waterford has recently seen announcements by key companies such as the Eurofins expansion in Dungarvan and West Pharmaceuticals official opening of its global centre of excellence at Knockhouse. It is because of the collective engagement of all the stakeholders here in the South East that IDA has been successful in the attraction of investment to this region.

WLR CHRISTMAS APPEAL 2018 W

aterford Chamber is delighted to support the WLR ‘Be a Little Star’ Christmas Appeal this year in association with the Society of the St. Vincent de Paul in the hope of raising funds which will go directly to the society’s ongoing services in the local community. The ‘Be a Little Star’ campaign will run on-air on WLR throughout December and will consist of several key events this year. These events will include the previously popular ‘Red to Work’ day whereby hundreds of schools, companies and businesses in the city and county will wear red on Friday, 14th December in support of the appeal. All Chamber members are encouraged to sign up to take part through www.chritmasappeal.ie. Waterford Chamber CEO, Gerald Hurley stated: “We are delighted to support such a worthy cause again this year, which provides such vital services to those less fortunate in our community. Christmas is a time of generosity and kindness and I am encouraging the Waterford business community to get behind this wonderful initiative.”

Roisin Ferris, WLR Events Manager for the appeal says “Christmas should be a time of great joy for everyone and we here at WLR relish in the festivities in December from playing Christmas music to passing on greetings to family and friends. However, there is another side to Christmas as many are living in hard times and we should not forget those in need at this time of year. Through our campaign we hope to inform the community of the many services the SVP provide locally and in turn assist in raising funds through a number of different events we host during the Christmas period.” Funds raised through the 2018 Christmas Radio Appeal go towards food and fuel for the needy of the City and County but will also assist with the provision of many vital services the SVP provide. These services assist in ensuring; • Children in less well-off families have money for school books, uniforms and shoes. • Students from disadvantaged homes are helped with college fees and transport. • Low income families have

access to suitable childcare that allows both parents work. • The very real and increasing homeless problem that exists around the county is effectively tackled by the St. Vincent De Pauls Men’s Hostel. The Christmas Radio Appeal will be hosted by WLR FM presenters and will run throughout the month of December. For a list of events see www.ChristmasAppeal.ie.

Irish Ambassador to Canada, Kevin Vickers with Mayor of South Dublin, Paul Gogarty and the team behind the Family Mediation Project.

The POWER of MEDIATION Dr Róisín O’Shea, Partner in Arc Mediation and board member of the Mediator’s Institute of Ireland, is a mentor on Waterford Chamber's Regional Leaders Programme. Here Róisin talks to Lynda Lawton about her passion for mediation, her ongoing interest in legal research and reform, and the future of mediation in Ireland. Q: We in the Chamber first knew you as a watercolour artist. When did you start your career as a mediator?

A: My own difficult experience of the Irish Court system after my marriage broke down in 2004 led me back to college as a mature student to study law. As I progressed through my degree at Waterford Institute of Technology, I realised that litigating was the least effective mechanism to resolve a dispute, and in my final year in 2008 I decided to train as a mediator. From that point on I was hooked, I took to mediation like a duck to water. My life experience and people skills were hugely beneficial and having sufficient legal knowledge meant that I understood the legal context of a dispute. When you write an agreement to resolve a dispute, it’s important to

30

ensure that it is capable of legal enforcement, if that is what the parties want.

Q: Tell me about your PhD which was published in 2014?

A: At the end of my marriage I was at a crossroads. From the time I graduated from NCAD in 1981 I had been self-employed selling and licensing my paintings, but I was emotionally drained and I just wanted to stop what I had been doing and give myself time to reflect on what I wanted from life. Going back to college on a full-time basis was an exciting and welcome distraction. To my surprise I discovered that there was an academic hiding behind the paintbrushes and I enjoyed learning and discovering that side of myself. I found the study of law to be very similar to painting. A legal problem is like starting a painting

with a blank page in front of me, my paintbrushes and paints are the tools I use to bring the concept from my brain to the page, and as I work the image resolves itself. Law is incredibly organic and malleable, and almost every problem or dispute, can resolve through understanding that context with the extra colour of fairness. Once I had completed my law degree, I intended to re-commence painting primarily while doing some mediation work, but life intervened again in the form of the then Chief Justice of Canada Beverley McLachlan who urged me to undertake a PhD. I had to have a source of income, so doing a PhD was only an option if I secured funding. To my surprise I was awarded a scholarship by the Irish Research Council and I spent the next four years observing family law cases in the Circuit Court, and practising and researching

mediation both in Ireland and abroad.

Q: You won multiple awards as a mature law student, what was driving you on?

A: I felt I had gained some insights and I wanted to engage in the debate around legal reform. In particular I saw the destructive effect of conflict and gained an understanding that the primary effect of the onset of litigation was to fuel a conflict, rather than defusing it. I participated in debates, submitted essays and proposals for international competitions. I wanted to be part of the dialogue and to advocate for alternatives to litigation.

Q: You’re an artist, an academic and a mediator, how do you manage your time?

A: Luckily there are seven days in a week, and I use all of them! I ring-fence at least one day a week for ongoing research. I keep the weekends for painting, and my publisher Printcom manages the sales of my licensed work. The rest of the week I am mediating.

Q: Why did you become a mediator?

A: Many years ago I was fortunate enough to be invited to join an informal “committee” by Dublin publican Dessie Hynes, which included the U.S. team appointed by President Clinton to negotiate the Good Friday Agreement. The meetings with the U.S. team and various other invited parties took

NETWORK • Q4 2018

place in the basement of Dessie’s pub ‘Hynes’ on Baggot St, which he called ‘Roisin’s Kitchen’. I was greatly struck by George Mitchel whose style of negotiating was subtle but powerfully effective, and when I did the mediation training course, the pieces just fell into place, and it felt like a perfect fit. In 2009 I did my first mediation case and while the experience was daunting, it provided incredible job satisfaction.

emailed to clients for review. Our process consists of face-to-face sessions, telephone discussions, email communications and Skype calls. A typical working day starts at 9.30am and we usually finish by about 7.00pm. Some days we finish much later as we occasionally see clients outside of normal business hours.

Q: What does a day in the life of a mediator look like?

A: In 2010 Shane Dempsey and I established Arc Mediation. At that point Shane was involved in IT Dr O'Shea speaking at the ‘Better decisions in private family law’ seminar in London, February 2018. research and I was doing my PhD.

In between to Mediate should look like, what a those sessions we will be working settlement is and most importantly on draft agreements which are that any agreement drafted by a

31


mediator should be capable of legal enforcement if the parties wish it to be legally binding. I see mediation as a pragmatic step-by-step process, that identifies all the issues, quantifies assets where necessary, and explores all options to try and come to a resolution, whether it is a workplace dispute, a business partnership dispute, the end of a marriage or a dispute about business succession. The beauty of mediation is that it is a selfdetermining confidential process, no arbitrary outcome is imposed by a third party.

Q: You are involved in ongoing research, can you tell us about that?

A: I am currently the Principal Investigator for The Family Mediation Project, a research initiative at WIT which is test-running

a mediation model that I developed along with my colleague Dr Sinead Conneely, and we launched phase 5 in Dublin this year. We have presented at several international conferences including Nuffield Foundation’s ‘Better decisions in private family law…’ seminar in London in February this year and we will be presenting our findings at the AFCC annual conference in Toronto in May 2019. Sinead and I were invited as “relevant stakeholders” by the Department of Justice to make submissions on the Mediation Act 2017, and we are carrying out research with Ministerial consent in the District Court. We are particularly interested in seeing what kinds of disputes are coming to court and whether mediation has been tried. We are also working on submissions for the oversight and regulation of the mediation profession in Ireland.

Q: You’re a mentor in the Regional Leaders Programme, what guidance would you like to give to other entrepreneurs or future leaders?

A: Be willing to challenge yourself and step outside of your comfort zone. If you’re passionate about the work you do, others will follow your lead. Build your business or position on hard work and expert knowledge, and keep adding to your knowledge. Taking risks to develop a business is necessary, but don’t risk it all. Put sufficient building blocks in place to weather adversity, but be fearless in aiming for the stars.

Payroll Software

P

arolla is a payroll software which has been designed and brought to market by a husband and wife team based in Waterford. Mark Ogilvie and Claire Brennan returned to Claire’s native Tramore from Auckland, New Zealand in 2014. Through Mark’s consultancy business, they saw the opportunity to write software that could fully integrate with accounting software such as Xero whilst meeting the Ireland specific challenges of GDPR and PAYE modernisation. PAYE modernisation is the biggest overhaul of the PAYE system since the 60s. Revenue aims to provide a more user-friendly, accurate and time efficient system not only for themselves but for employers and all taxpayers. All current P forms (P30, P45, P60 etc) are to be removed. The current P2C form is to be replaced with a Revenue Payroll Notification’s (RPN) from January 2019. The following is a brief overview of how submissions to ROS will work post PAYE modernisation with a software package that works directly with ROS such as Parolla. 1. Enter any new employees to Parolla. 2. Retrieve latest Revenue Payroll Notification (RPN) from ROS. 3. Enter hours/rates/expenses/deductions of your employees.

Parolla A4 Ad.indd 1

NETWORK • Q4 2018

Mark Ogilvie & Claire Brennan 4. Process the payroll. 5. Submit the Payroll Submission Request (PSR) to ROS on or before the pay day. 6. Email payslips and pay employees. 7. A monthly statement will be sent via ROS on the fifth day of the following month.

• As Parolla is a software which directly interfaces with ROS, stages 2 and 5 above are a one-click process saving you time and ensuring accuracy. TOP TIPS TO GET READY FOR PAYE MODERNISATION •

Ensure all your employees are registered with you otherwise they will be placed on emergency tax in January 2019. Encourage your employees to log into their My Account via www.revenue.ie or the newly created Rev App. They will need their PPS number /your company number. If you did not send your List of

Employees to Revenue, and your employees don’t log into My Account, then you will need to complete a P46 or P45 (3) for employees not on your P2C. • Revenue recommends that you no longer pay employees on a Nett to Gross basis where possible as it may cause expense to the employee/ employer. Ideally, make your pay run cycle “In Arrears” as the new system requires reporting on or before payment. The last P60s and P35s will still need to be submitted in January/February 2019. Have a ROS certificate on the PC that you are going to be running your Payrolls, the certificates are transferable. If you need to Split payrolls talk to Revenue to ensure inappropriate individuals don’t have access to sensitive information.

Parolla will be running a PAYE Modernisation lunch-time interactive session on 6th December and training sessions in mid-December. To register for a free training session, or for further details contact c.brennan@parolla.ie or 089 2219325 or www.parolla.ie

BOXWORKS 2 Located in John's Lane, Boxworks 2 is based on the original design but with an emphasis on providing an alternative design for the growing company looking for that space to expand. “Already some of our coworkers have grown from 1 or 2 to 10 people within the two-year period that we have been in operation,” said Flash. “These companies have had to move on and out into the outskirts of the city in order to find that space that could facilitate them. So, designing Boxworks 2 allows us to capture that market by creating a sister building that would provide the same creative environment but geared towards larger organisations up to 15 members. The space still relates to the coworker preference to be within the hub of a city centre, and a design which remains grounded in the coworker ethos.”   FACILITIES Boxworks 2 has a choice of 17 office spaces, large reception area and a large open kitchen area. We are also providing a training/meeting room with AV equipment and full catering facilities from coffee to buffet lunch and finger food. In addition, we are adding a soundproof podcast room that can be booked by the hour/day/week.

Adult Orthodontics A discreet path to a beautiful smile  By DR. MARY O’KEEFFE, O'Keeffe Orthodontics

T

raditionally orthodontics has been seen as a treatment associated with children and teenagers to improve their teeth and smile. Whilst young adolescents remain the largest segment of patients receiving orthodontic treatment, there has been a noticeable increase in demand amongst adult patients for orthodontic treatment. In today's society, a person's teeth and smile are important components of facial attractiveness, which can markedly affect self-esteem and self-image. The mouth is an important area that draws attention in verbal and non-verbal communication and interpersonal interactions. Several studies have shown that facial attractiveness affects interpersonal success, particularly in school and employment settings.

Lingual Braces Adults unhappy with their dental appearance can be self-conscious and exhibit low self-esteem as a result of their perception of their appearance. In our experience adults seek orthodontic treatment for a wide variety of reasons including aesthetic, social, functional, and psychological concerns. ORTHODONTIC ADVANCES There have been fantastic advances

36

in orthodontic treatments, training and technology that have allowed orthodontists to continually improve the treatment offered to their patients. Advances in discreet orthodontics and the variety of treatment options available have made undergoing orthodontic treatment as an adult more attractive. These include: • Ceramic braces: (clear train track braces on the front of the teeth which are less visible to others) • Lingual braces: (braces on the back of the teeth which cannot be seen) • Clear removable braces: (aligners, such as Invisalign) From the orthodontists’ viewpoint, adults are excellent patients as they are highly motivated to achieve a fantastic result and usually exhibit high levels of co-operation and oral hygiene. In addition, orthodontic treatment in adults can facilitate other treatments as part of a multidisciplinary treatment approach. This may include using orthodontic treatment to upright neighbouring teeth to facilitate implant placement or bridgework, or moving teeth to relieve crowding to facilitate oral hygiene and improve oral health.

Rose of Tralee, Kirsten Mate Maher CAN I AFFORD IT? A factor to consider prior to commencing orthodontic treatment is cost. Variations within payment plans are now available, with the total cost paid in full by the time the treatment is concluded, reducing the financial burden of paying a large lump sum payment. Additionally, tax relief is available at the standard rate of 20% on orthodontic fees paid through the Med 2 scheme. A beautiful smile can empower you and give you a fantastic feeling of confidence. It’s never too late to get that dream smile!

Digital Marketing Manager Márla Communications

Business Consultant South East BIC

General Manager Waterford & Tramore Racecourse

Jonathan Flynn joins the team having worked in the Digital Marketing sphere for over 10 years. A passion to fully develop his skills has resulted in Jonathan acquiring a diverse range of digital marketing experience from working in a wide spectrum of businesses and industries in Ireland, Canada and Australia. Jonathan has honed his digital marketing skills through understanding the unique requirements of each individual business and delivering strategies that work for them. “A lot of companies ask me – what exactly does digital marketing mean? Simply put, digital marketing captures any online communication, including mobile optimised websites, SEO, social media strategy, Google ad campaigns, digital display advertising and email marketing. Successful digital marketing requires a very clear understanding of a client’s business, a detailed plan and ongoing analysis and iteration. As a business, if you are not communicating with your customers through digital platforms, you and your business will become less and less relevant.”

Siobhán Oates joins South East BIC as Business Consultant with responsibility for Finance. Her role is to advise and assist entrepreneurial clients on all aspects of business planning & development with specific focus on financial modelling and planning. In her business consultancy capacity, Siobhán will work with entrepreneurs at all stages of their development, from initial concept to launch, commercialisation and beyond, addressing funding requirements and preparing them for investor-readiness. She is a native of Ferrybank, Waterford. Commenting on Siobhán’s appointment, Aidan Shine, CEO South East BIC said, “Siobhán’s extensive financial and accounting background offers the clients of South East BIC a wealth of experience and support particularly in financial modelling and planning, but also in business strategy and development. Her years of experience in both industry and practice will be an invaluable asset to any entrepreneur at the early stages of innovation and launch. We are delighted to have someone of her calibre on board.”

Owen Byrne has been appointed as General Manager at Tramore Racecourse taking over from Sue Phelan who was in the position for 19 years. Owen brings a wealth of experience in both horseracing and event management having previously held the position of Racecourse Marketing Support Manager with Horseracing Ireland and heading up the marketing function at our very own Winterval festival. Speaking on his appointment, Owen said, “I am delighted to take on the challenge of General Manager at Tramore Racecourse following on from the fantastic work completed by Sue Phelan. We are in a very exciting phase of investment at present with our new entrance building and development of a new stable yard to be completed for our New Year’s Day meeting.”

Refinements to the new Mazda6 raise its profile as a segment leader and a true alternative to premium rivals. Not only has the design, engine line up and technology been upgraded, driving dynamics have also been improved to further strengthen the engaging driving experience provided by Mazda's unique, Jinba Ittai, carand-driver-as-one philosophy. The new Mazda6 should be a genuine consideration for any driver looking for a premium yet fun to drive offering, even in the era of SUV and crossover dominance.”

First national smoveyMED training course held at WIT Arena T

ramore native Irene Treacy has been steadily building her Smovey Health business over the past number of years and recently hosted Ireland’s first smoveyMED practitioner course at WIT Arena, with the support of Waterford Chamber Skillnet. Speaking at the event, Irene, who has the Irish franchise for Smovey said: “I am so thrilled to be able to bring this amazing tool to Ireland, which is having extraordinary health benefits for a range of people from seniors to infants. I love that I can run this business in my home town of Tramore, host the training in Waterford for a national audience. Getting the support of Waterford Chamber Skillnet for this training course was superb and greatly appreciated.”

The participants on the course came from a variety of backgrounds, including medical, health, holistic and fitness professionals who all want to help their patients and clients experience the benefits of smoveyMED. Dr. Philip McMillian, who is an international speaker and authority on Dementia, travelled from the UK for the training and said he is amazed at the benefits of Smovey. “I have only been using it myself for the past three months and already see great benefits with it and after the training this weekend, I can see how I can introduce it to lots more people.” Austrian Smovey trainer Gerda Dealunay facilitated the two day training course, and complimented both Irene and Waterford Chamber

Skillnet for their collaboration. Patrick Hanley, Chartered Physiotherapist with three clinics in Cork, also said: “I have been working with Smovey for some time and very excited to learn all about smoveyMED and the research behind it and believe it will help lots of my clients”. Such was the success of the first national smoveyMED practitioner training, that a second has just been announced for 23rd and 24th February, again in WIT Arena.
