Jack Owens has a strong background in languages, speaking both French and Spanish. While new to the MICE industry, Jack is completely dedicated to applying his skills to the Irish business tourism industry and spurring its growth ever further.
“I love travelling and meeting new people — I’m lucky that in my role, I get to do both. When I am not brushing up on my languages, I enjoy being outdoors whenever possible; whether that’s through tennis or football or hiking the lake trails of Glendalough.”
A proud Dubliner, Jack enjoys the hustle and bustle of Temple Bar as much as a walk up Ticknock Hill in the Dublin Mountains, but his ideal getaway is further afield. “My favourite place in Ireland is Derrynane, along the Ring of Kerry. It’s an area rooted in history with vast sandy beaches, and offers plenty of craic with endless trad sessions.”
Jack is currently undertaking a meeting and event planning certificate programme with MPI that will enhance his critical job skills on topics essential to meeting and event professionals. He is also Cvent Supplier Certified.
