Speakers Series

An excellent professional does not have an exclusively narrow focus of learning. Nor does he acquire only fragments of an specific field while missing a coherent vision of the whole.

Ely’s Speakers Series held several times a semestre, gives you the opportunity to take part in an informal dinner and discussion with a professor, business leader, or a public intellectual. These discussions help you to mature your understanding of cultural trends, learn more about a given field, and appreciate the advances being made in the arts and sciences.

Our speakers are chosen for their outstanding contributions in their fields and for the personal integrity with which they live. Many are alumni and professors of TCD and UCD.

The Speakers Series takes place on selected Wednesday nights during the school year. Dinner begins at 6:00pm, followed by the talk and discussion with the speaker in an informal setting. Please let us know if you would like to come for dinner in advance.
