Trinity’s ‘Executive Breakout’ Programme Launches

Posted on: 26 September 2016

Trinity’s Executive Breakout programme was launched with an information breakfast held at the Innovation Academy, Foster Place. The new short programme, designed for middle and senior managers, has been developed by the Innovation Academy, with a team of international academics and practitioners in the areas of innovation, creativity and leadership.

Director of the Innovation Academy, Dr Barry McMahon, opening the launch event said “the programme was designed to encourage managers to think differently, work more collaboratively and take their team and organisations to the next level.”

Medtech entrepreneur and regular contributor on the programme, Dr Conor Hanley, gave an inspiring talk, reflecting on his own personal journey speaking candidly about chasing new projects and what it takes to build and run successful ventures in the healthcare sector. Dr Hanley commented that he challenges himself every year to take some form of training and he views the Trinity Executive Breakout programme as welcome change for senior managers who want to get the best of their team and stay on top of their game.

The Executive Breakout programme is underpinned by three core learning themes: creative thinking, high-performance leadership and disruptive innovation. Participants are positioned at the intersection of these themes, with the central focus on the development of professional and personal goals. This fully accredited programme is delivered over two months via seven on-site days on Trinity’s campus. For more information or to register, contact the Programme Team by email: or
