How David is building a better working world

“My experience in helping international clients understand the unique impact of Brexit on the Irish economy and the sector implications of various Brexit scenarios on their investments, allows me to build a better working world.  Having worked on a number of high profile IPOs and built up a reputation as a public commentator on the Irish economy, I was the key economic spokesperson for EY in its Budget 2019 coverage in Ireland.”
