Wendy Austin (BBC) hosted the event of four panellists including Naomh McElhatton (SMART Global), Gavan Wall (The Wall Group), Darren Cave (Ulster & Irish Rugby Founder, Founder of Guilt Trip Coffee) and Darragh McCarthy (FinTrU Founder & CEO).

With the Lecture Series being in its third year running, FinTrU Founder & CEO Darragh McCarthy said, "The purpose of this lecture series is help make Belfast and Northern Ireland a thought leadership location in Financial Services and to highlight the local talent in Northern Ireland.”
