How long left for the Bertie Earners?

He regales audiences with a thoughtful and history-infused presentation as only an Irishman can, by sharing: the historical significance of Ireland’s late-20th-century peace process, the delicate strategy and skills he employed to achieve success, how to find common ground and strike a deal, what other countries, corporations and even individuals can learn from his approach.

The blurb on the Washington Speaker Bureau site where Bertie Ahern is still being advertised at $40k a go for a keynote or panel. (Plus expenses)

The Bert’s specialist subjects?

Europe
Negotiation
Overcoming Obstacles and Challenges

Overcoming Mahon?
