Happy New Year to all! 

We hope 2014 is as busy and successful a year for all our friends and patrons as it is looking for JBE!  2013 came to a climactic end with the culmination of many successful programs in the last few months of the year. Following on from these achievements 2014 has lots of new and exciting projects on the horizon.   JBE is set to revolutionize itself and as we accelerate into January with an exciting future ahead it is with sadness that we say goodbye to the charismatic Lorraine.  We wish her all the very best in her new endeavour but look forward to continuing to work together on future projects. John & Lorraine are already shaking things up in Belvedere College where their teaching module has flourished and will conclude at the end of the month with a Fashion Show produced and directed by the Students themselves (under the vigilant eye of John and Lorraine …..of course!) Good Luck Guys!

30 Days hath September!

2nd October 2013

30 Days hath September!  Not enough for the JBE team this month as September proved to be a very busy time for all.  It kicked off with the week-long U21 Health Sciences Conference in UCD. Our Conference Organisation team, led by John, is going from strength to strength and proving to be very active.  The month then came to a climatic conclusion after a hectic schedule with a trip to Prague, for the MEWA annual meeting.  This was a four day program which included their conference, an awards ceremony and a gala function in the majestic setting of St Agnes Monastery, Prague.  Time to draw breath before the onslaught of October!!


Back to School for JBE!

23rd August 2013

Yes JBE are going back to school this September to teach an Event Management module for 4th year transition students at Belvedere College S.J. Along with discovering how to create, plan and stage an event the students will be expected to produce a Fundraising Fashion show at the end of the term. A real challenge for anyone but with some of the JBE team there to guide them and impart some of our experience and expertise it promises to be a great event! Should be fun and will keep you posted of how it’s all going….not to mention how you can support this worthwhile Charity Event.

Whats next ?

12th August 2013

Deep breath team, as here we go again!

Fun at the week end ....JBE style !

21st April 2013


This weekend was spent at Carton House making big changes !! On the first day of a two day programme, and with the help of our friends at Twisted Image, we transformed the ( very modern) reception area of the Carton Suites into an authentic Irish Pub ! Why ? Our clients brief " I want my guests to have the five star experience of Carton House, with the relaxed " very Irish" atmosphere and Craic of an Irish pub, without having to bus the group to the city ! Introducing..... " Kitty Kellys Parlour" , complete with Kitty herself to meet and greet the guests, Irish Trad band, and Irish dancers enjoying a ceili with the guests. A big challange, but great fun and even better .....a VERY happy client . 

Happy St. Patrick's Weekend!
