Launched in 2018, CUPRA has unapologetically established itself a rule breaker in the automotive industry. On the night, Neil will be sharing the story of their success, and how they will be securing their brands identity to align with future consumer habits.

Mr. Dalton said of the event: “The example of CUPRA as a rebel in the auto industry provides a platform for a thorough discussion on sealing your brand story to ensure you stand out, while simultaneously future proofing ourselves in consumers’ eyes. I am looking forward to sharing our unique story with MII at this first event following the pandemic.”

The event, which will be hosted by MII Cork Chair, Jerry Crowley, will also welcome new CEO from the Marketing Institute of Ireland, Shane McGonigle, who will bring invaluable experience spanning a 30-year career to the institute, including a 5-year stint with the Kerry Group where he held positions as European Digital Marketing Director and Strategic Marketing Director.

MII Cork Chair Jerry Crowley said: “This is the first event of the season for us, and we wanted to make it free to the public so they can really get a flavor of how we do things at the MII Cork. We all know the best networking happens in person, and our speakers on the night have brilliant knowledge and insights to share with Cork’s marketing industry. We are confident that everyone will leave with something.”

MII’s mission to strengthen the community of marketers in Ireland is embodied through providing high-quality education for professionals seeking to upskill and promoting the member experience as a culture of belonging and innovation through frequent networking events and educational discussion evenings.
