We were delighted to see a number of Irish companies physically visiting our local market during the month of September. One such company was Origina, who presented, in person, to our Sydney and Melbourne advisory panels. Origina is a third party software maintenance services provider specializing in IBM software. With customers like NAB, CBA and BHP already in Australia, they used this visit to increase awareness of their offering locally while getting some valuable insights from our panel members. While here Origina also had a great few days at the Gartner Symposium on the Gold Coast where CEO, Tomás O’Leary, spoke to a packed room of interested local stakeholders.
Enterprise Ireland, in conjunction with the Embassy of Ireland, also hosted a lunch in the Ambassador’s residence for Origina where Tomás and team had the opportunity to interact with CIO’s and senior stakeholders from numerous Federal Government agencies. Overall a great trip and an excellent sign of normal business being resumed with Irish CEO’s spending much more time in this market.
