Belfast dinner discussion covers rugby, golf and the role of clients

More than 250 construction professionals attended CIOB’s Belfast annual dinner in May, with TV personality Adrian Logan as master of ceremonies.

CIOB president Mike Foy used the opportunity to speak about the important role clients have in delivering successful construction projects, while Roger Gillespie, chair of the CIOB Belfast Hub committee, was another of the speakers.

After-dinner entertainment included a question-and-answer session with retired Ulster and Irish rugby player Chris Henry, as well as Wilma Erskine, former secretary manager of Royal Portrush Golf Club, who is widely recognised as a key figure in securing the hugely successful Open Championship for Northern Ireland.

Belfast Hub committee member Philip Corr, who died in 2019, was remembered during the event and over £3,000 was raised in his honour during the evening and donated to Air Ambulance NI.
