Kingsley, an Economics and Politics graduate from Trinity College Dublin, has lived and worked in 6 countries. He spent 8 years as the IDA Ireland and Enterprise Ireland representative in Sydney and then, for 17 years, was the Worldwide CEO of The Ireland Funds based in Boston before returning to Ireland and establishing The Networking Institute. Throughout his extensive career he has come to appreciate the power of Networking and he sees it as the ‘glue’ that makes everything happen.


As a result he and his colleagues have developed a unique and distinctive approach to Networking training and, through The Networking Institute, they want to share their methodology with a worldwide audience.






“We’re passionate about the knowledge we have amassed over the years, and so our mission is to share this expertise with those who need it. We do this by developing online and offline programs for corporates, individuals, governments and organisations, both in the private and not-for-profit sectors. We deliver our programs in a clear, light-hearted manner to ensure participants enjoy the experience while improving their skill level in these key areas.”
The Networking Institute is comprised of a committed group of individuals who have decades of experience working in the core areas of Philanthropy and Fundraising, Diaspora Engagement, and Speaking and Presenting. In all of these areas, networking is the glue that made everything possible. Collectively they have been exposed to a wide range of business experiences, spanning many geographies, helping them to develop depth in best practice and to define what success looks like in each of these critical areas of business success.
