 The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport 16th Diploma Graduation Ceremony took place on the 20th October in the Smurfit Graduate Business School, UCD, Blackrock. A total of forty-one graduates were awarded their Diploma qualifications and Chartered Membership of the Institute.
The ceremony honoured the graduates for their achievements in studying over the two years and the dedication that is required during this time. This commitment by each graduate could be seen on the faces of proud family and friends who joined in a round of applause for every person graduating on the day.
The ceremony was opened by Mick Curran, CEO who acted as Master of Ceremonies. Mick recently took over as CEO in September from Pat Treacy, FCILT. Mick welcomed graduates, family and friends to the ceremony and spoke warmly of students and their achievement they had accomplished over the two years of study.
Head Lecturer of the Diploma, Larry Banville, delivered the introduction on the day and read out the graduates’ names during the conferring ceremony. Larry spoke of how proud he was of all the individual students and was delighted to see all their hard work pay off over the two years.
Professor Brian Fynes, FCILT, was guest speaker on the day. Brian is the Associate Dean (International) and Professor of Supply Chain Management at the College of Business, UCD. Brian addressed the graduates and thanked them for their commitment and hard work over the two years of the course. As ever Brian’s words were insightful and entertaining and filled the lecture theatre with laughter.
