Today With Sean O Rourke Tuesday 13 October 2015
Book: Perform As A Leader
Before the Ireland France rugby game on Sunday, it is reported that Paul O’Connell gave an inspiration speech to his teammates that reduced some of them to tears.
There’s no doubt Paul O’Connell is an incredible leader, he motivates and inspired people to perform to the best of their abilities. We all know people who are born leaders but can leadership be taught? Can anyone be a leader?
Orlaith Carmody whose book Perform as a leader has just been published and is available for €14.99
Cuts to the USC, investment in childcare, trains to the Airport, the partial restoration of the Christmas bonus...
We've been promised all sorts by the government in the run up to this afternoon's Budget 2016.
Michael Noonan and Brendan Howlin seemed fairly pleased last month as the tax take for the first nine months of the year was announced - but stuck to their script in terms of promising that there will be close to €1.5billion in extra spending for next year.
The question however is who gets what and how will that €1.5 billion be divided up?
For their thoughts on what's likely coming our way this afternoon, Pat Leahy, Sinead Ryan and Pat Mahon, tax partner with PWC joined Sean this morning.
Last month we were hearing about the difficulties that students were having trying to secure accommodation in the Dublin area.
