What is Profile?

A fast-paced programme for leaders who want a briefing on Dublin as the place where they live and / or work. Participants use it as an introduction or an update. They are briefed on the important trends, key institutions and main players locally and hear firsthand from some of the leaders who are tackling local issues.

The broad range of leaders who attend Profile bring to the course their very diverse perspectives and this adds to the briefing.



What is the programme format?

Across the two-day programme, participants take part in a series of briefings, conversations, visits and debates. Participants travel to different venues and places around Dublin.

Where are Profile courses held?

Profile is run in Dublin and in some international locations.

Organisations that operate regionally or nationally can arrange a customised package of Profiles, so that their leaders can go on a series of profiles in different parts of Ireland.

Contact your local Common Purpose office for more details.

What is the cost to attend Profile?

The fee for Profile is €1,500
