Leading business people from across Northern Ireland attended the BT Business Innovation Breakfast in Belfast today to hear from two of Northern Ireland’s top local entrepreneurs, including international music star Jonny Quinn from Snow Patrol.

Jonny, who swapped his drumsticks for the business breakfast, was a key speaker at the event, which was designed for businesses across Northern Ireland to discuss the importance of BT’s latest business-grade IP voice service, BT Cloud Voice. The breakfast highlighted the importance of staying connected to colleagues and clients on the move and of equipping companies with the tools to future-proof their business.

Jonny, who is also founder of publishing company Polar Patrol Publishing, was joined by Chris Johnston, founder and Chief Executive of Adoreboard, an award-winning brand intelligence tech start-up company. Both speakers discussed their business experiences and the key factors that have led to their success.

Jonny Quinn, said: “I am delighted to have been involved in the BT Business Innovation Breakfast to highlight the importance of technology in the growth and success of businesses across Northern Ireland.
