Senior IRO Dinner

The IR Society's dinner club for senior IROs to network with peers in a relaxed environment.

One of the IR Society’s primary objectives is to promote best practice and the continual development of the IR profession. We have found that an extremely effective way to do this is to provide opportunities for our members to share ideas and engage in peer group discussion in an informal environment. 

We also recognise that many of our events, by necessity, do not cater specifically for our senior IRO membership, with their advanced levels of knowledge and expertise.

These Senior IRO Dinners are held on the second Tuesday of most months and are designed to give senior IROs an opportunity to network with their peers in a relaxed and informal environment. Each dinner is attended by around ten senior IROs, as well as one or two members of the IR Society Board. The dinners are generally held in Central London restaurants with suitable private rooms.

We will sometimes suggest some possible topics to discuss during the meal and there will occasionally be a guest speaker or a guest attendee who we feel would be able to make a significant positive contribution to the event. These speakers will always be influential and independent. The Senior IRO Dinners are by invitation only and the Chatham House rule will apply.

Women in IR Lunch

The IR Society's lunch club for IROs to network with peers in a relaxed environment.

One of the IR Society’s primary objectives is to promote best practice and the continual development of the IR profession. We have found that an extremely effective way to do this is to provide opportunities for our members to share ideas and engage in peer group discussion in an informal environment. In order to provide our IRO members with a forum for this type of interaction we introduced our IRO Lunches in 2010. This is a lunch just aimed at women in-house IR practitioners. Each lunch is attended by around ten IROs, as well as one or two members of the IR Society Board. The lunches are generally held in Central London restaurants with suitable private rooms. The Chatham House rule will apply to the lunch meetings.
