    IBO January 2018 Business Breakfast

    Date: Tuesday, January 23, 2018

    Time: 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.

    Guest Speaker: Máirtín Ó Muilleoir - Sinn Féin MLA for South Belfast, Publisher, Entrepreneur and Civic Leader

    Location: Fitzpatrick Hotel, 687 Lexington Avenue (between E. 56th & 57th Streets), New York, NY 10022


    An advocate for the new and resurgent Belfast, he has launched a series of initiatives designed to showcase the very best of the city including the the Belfast International Homecoming which promotes links between Belfast and the global Irish Diaspora. He is Chairman of the Belfast Media Group publishing company which includes the New York weekly, The Irish Echo among its titles. Since leading the acquisition of the Irish Echo in 2007, he has prioritized links of mutual benefit between Ireland and the US, with a special focus on the peace process. In 2016, he supported an investor group which took over the Irish American news website IrishCentral.com.

    An Irish speaker, he believes strongly in the promotion of culture as the bedrock of successful and diverse communities. He first entered Belfast City Hall in 1987 at the age of 27, subsequently leading a series of court challenges to assure equal treatment for nationalists in the city.

    A journalist and author, his books in Irish and English include a history of Belfast City Hall ‘Belfast’s Dome of Delight’ and the novella ‘Ceap Cuddles’.

    He left City Hall in 1997 to concentrate on business but returned in 2011 as the first ever Sinn Féin councillor for the Balmoral area of South Belfast.

    He served as Lord Mayor of Belfast from June 2013-June 2014 and during his term appointed ten chaplains including representative of the Jewish, Muslim, Hindu and Buddhist faiths as well as ministers from the four main Christian churches. He also pioneered transatlantic links, signing a sister city agreement with the Mayor of Boston Marty Walsh and welcomed President Obama to Belfast. Among his awards in 2014 were the PRIDE Festival Award for Best Political Contribution to the LGBT Community and the Ancient Order of Hibernians of America JFK Medal, presented in St Louis, Missouri.

    He was returned to the Northern Ireland Assembly in May 2016 and appointed to the post of Finance Minister where he pioneered a raft of new initiatives including per cent for art, a social value act and a rethink of property and domestic tax policies. The collapse of the Northern Ireland Executive in January 2017 triggered a fresh election in March 2017 at which he was again returned for South Belfast.

    In May 2017, he was the proud recipient of an honorary doctorate from Quinnipiac University in Connecticut.

    He is married to Helen O'Hare and they have four children. 

     

    This event is hosted by Past President Niall O'Leary.

    IBO February 2018 Evening Meeting 

    Date: Wednesday, February 7th, doors open 6:30 p.m. and meeting starts at 7:15 p.m. at Scandinavia House

    Guest Speaker: James P. O'Neill - Police Commissioner of the City of New York


    James P. O'Neill was appointed the 43rd police commissioner of the City of New York by Mayor Bill de Blasio in September 2016. He had served previously as chief of department, the NYPD's highest uniformed rank. He was instrumental in developing neighborhood policing, which is renewing and recasting the NYPD's patrol function to provide greater police and community interaction and collaboration.

    Widely experienced in both the patrol and the investigative sides of the department, Commissioner O'Neill is a hands-on police practitioner and a dedicated police reformer. He speaks with urgency about the need for police to evolve if they are to succeed in connecting with communities, and about keeping people safe in the 21st century.

    Police Commissioner O'Neill began his law enforcement career in 1983 with the Transit Police, which was then an independent police department. He credits his time on patrol on the trains and platforms of the subway system with helping him learn how to interact and communicate with a wide range of people, a skill he regards as essential to successful police work. He had risen to lieutenant by the time of the 1995 merger of the Transit Police with the NYPD.

    As a lieutenant in the NYPD, he worked at the police academy and the warrant squad before being promoted to captain and executive officer in the 52nd Precinct in the northern Bronx. He served as the commanding officer of three successive precincts: Central Park, the 25th Precinct in eastern Harlem, and the 44th Precinct in the western Bronx. He was C.O. of the 25th Precinct during the attacks of September 11th and remembers being proud of the way his fellow officers from all across the department came together to help and protect people during that crisis.

    It was as C.O. of the 44th Precinct, one of the busier commands in the city, that Commissioner O'Neill began to think seriously about reforming the NYPD patrol model. The precinct workload in the NYPD had long been divided between patrol officers who answered a steady stream of calls for service, and specialty officers who worked at correcting conditions and community outreach. As Commissioner O'Neill saw it, police departments had been asking their patrol officers to connect with community members for generations without ever giving them the time or the opportunity to do so. He envisioned a model with fewer specialists and more generalist officers, who answered calls, worked at problem-solving and local crime-fighting, and collaborated far more effectively with community members.

    Promoted to inspector and then to deputy chief, Commissioner O'Neill moved to the investigative side of the department, serving tours as commanding officer of the Vice Division, the Narcotics Division, and the Fugitive Enforcement Division. He worked in all three divisions to keep cases focused on reducing crime and supporting the priorities of precinct commanders.

    In March 2014, he was appointed commanding officer of Police Commissioner William Bratton's office and played a key role in the department's reengineering process, concentrating on operational reforms. As chief of patrol from June 2014, he began the development of neighborhood policing by anchoring officers in sectors and providing them with off-radio time to connect with community members and work at local problem-solving and crime-fighting.

    He was appointed chief of department in December 2014, and early on in his term, he helped lead the department through the shock and mourning that followed the assassinations of Detectives Rafael Ramos and WenJian Liu.

    Neighborhood policing—which is a crime-fighting plan above all else—has been implemented in more than half of New York City precincts, as well as all of the NYPD Housing Bureau police service areas, and is serving more than three million New Yorkers. It is the largest, best-funded, best-staffed community-policing initiative ever undertaken in the United States. Commissioner O'Neill's reforms are taking hold and will have a far-reaching and positive influence all across New York City.

    Commissioner O'Neill grew up in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn and was one of seven children. He has two sons, Daniel and Christopher. He is an avid hockey player and motorcyclist.
