The day will include prominent J1 speakers from the world of politics, business, academics and the arts. Workshops will cover a variety of topics including understanding US visas, strategies for setting up business in the US, and coaching on professional networking. 

A J1 business showcase will highlight the huge impact the J1 has had on Irish entrepreneurs and business.   The day will end with a live band and networking reception.
