Welcome To The All-Star CEO Competition 2018-19

On October 8th, 2018, the accreditation ceremony honoring Ireland's All-Star CEO’S will take place.

CEO’s that have subjected themselves to a rigorous adjudication process which will test their resolve and challenge them to articulate their vision for both themselves and their organisations going forward. Only the very best will be invited to the Gold Medal Accreditation Ceremony where they will join an illustrious line up of executives who like themselves have passed through the accreditation process.

Successful CEO’s will subsequently be invited to join the All-Star CEO Forum which will convene regularly to review economic, organisational and personal matters and to play a central role in the development of the All-Star Foundation, the organization behind the competition.

Accreditation as an All-Star CEO is a significant achievement with considerable benefits not least of which is the public recognition of your business achievements and leadership skills.

In the final analyses, we are looking for character, particularly business character, those qualities of resilience and leadership which have seen company’s continue and during the good and the challenging times. Women and Men that are leading great companies, supported by great employees, delivering a superior product or service and enjoying great consumer confidence.
