Deborah Threadgold

Deborah Threadgold is the General Manager of IBM Ireland, a position taken after 25 years within the IBM Corporation serving in a variety of roles at UK and Ireland and EMEA levels. A dynamic leader with a passion for inclusion and diversity, Deborah is responsible for business operations, driving revenue growth, client satisfaction, and employee engagement in Ireland.

She joined IBM Ireland in 1996, holding several key roles, including becoming the first Chief Digital Officer for IBM UK and Ireland, a role she held between 2017 and 2020. In this role, she led digital transformation within IBM UK and Ireland as well as IBM’s Digital Business Group.

“I am committed to helping our clients and partners to capitalise on their digital transformation and emerge stronger out of the pandemic, while positioning them for growth with our hybrid cloud platform and AI strategy.”

Julie Mernagh

Julie Mernagh, Head of People Development and Operations at Vodafone, is an experienced senior HR professional, with a drive to work collaboratively to solve complex people and culture challenges, applying a strategic and innovative mindset and a strong results focus to deliver tangible value.

Julie previously worked as a business consultant for over ten years, leading transformation and strategy programmes across Ireland and Europe. She has a breadth of experience across public and private sectors including financial services, digital, telecommunications, FMCG and food and agriculture.

“I think the experience over the past year has challenged many misconceptions around remote working such as the loss of productivity, and the impact on company connection and culture. How we will work post pandemic has changed forever, and for the better.”

“The appetite for change wouldn’t have been there until the crisis occurred. Yet we now have a real opportunity to change what it is that we’re doing and why we’re doing it.”
