One in two people believe an election should be called next year. This group tends to be younger, the next generation. The current Governments has never been the most stable, so a 2018 election could be on the cards.
Lessons towards 2020
Firstly, Irish people are quick to share what their needs are. These need states can change quickly. Irish organisations, business and Government should listen to people intently and empathically respond to these needs.
Secondly, politicians and business and community leaders need to understand that people have greater concerns than local matters. The future consumer is globally connected and is as quick to buy a brand, or ideology abroad as it is to support local.
Staying on top of what matters in Irish culture, fuelled by a global news, is key for any organisation to succeed in the future.
