The AIB Future Sparks Festival

Igniting the dreams and ambitions of Ireland's Future Sparks

This isn’t your standard careers fair – this is a student festival! Celebrating a world of possibilities and what could be. The AIB Future Sparks Festival brings together leaders in business and young entrepreneurs to inspire students and to show them the power of potential. No other event gives students this kind of access to Ireland’s more innovative industries with business at the heart including technology, creativity and lifestyle.


Ambitions are explored and new and exciting opportunities for students are uncovered.


This is the inside track on the future. This is where life-changing decisions are sparks. This is the AIB Future Sparks Festival.



AIB Future Sparks Festival – Bringing Expert Speakers to you at home!


The third annual AIB Future Sparks Festival was scheduled to take place in the RDS on Thursday 26th of March 2020. Due to COVID-19 the event could not go ahead as planned. We didn’t want students to miss out on our impressive speaker line-up so we’re bringing them to you at home!


We are proud to the launch of our new eight-part AIB Future Sparks Festival Series. The AIB Future Sparks Festival aims to inspire and educate students, giving them the tools they need to plan their future careers with positivity, confidence and purpose.


Hosted by Anna Geary, episodes will feature a range of lively interviews and insightful conversations with some of the best AIB Future Sparks Festival business leaders and innovators including: Maser- founder of Atlelier Maser, Erica Cody – Singer & Songwriter, Felix Jones – South African Rugby Coach, Sorcha O’Raghallaigh – Fashion Designer, Stephen Coen – Mayo Intercounty Footballer, Ahmed Mu’Azzam – Founder of Evocco and many more!


This series has been developed in conjunction with teachers to link with the senior cycle Business and Economics curriculum. Episodes will be accompanied by student activities which students can complete independently or which teachers can set for their class as homework. These worksheets can be requested by emailing the team at


Tune in to AIB’s YouTube and Instagram on Tuesday May 5th for the very first episode and Mondays and Fridays during May for brand new episodes after that.
