The Irishbizparty Conference - Giving SMEs a voice on April 30th

#irishbizparty Conference – Inspiring SMEs

Posted on March 23, 2014 by Samantha

Have you ever wanted to go to conferences but just couldn’t afford the ticket, petrol and childcare to go? Well I have come across this lots of times. But yet it is folk like me (Entreprneeurs and Small business owners) who need to be at these conferences to learn, network and share their experiences with each other.

So…..I’ve decided to organize this one!  And no, it doesn’t cost a lot! Only 25 euros!

30 April – Green Isle Hotel, Naas Road, Dublin 12.  BOOK HERE 

The humans behind the businesses will be there, sharing their knowledge, talking about the reality of being a business owner here in Ireland and the challenges we face and how we overcame them!  Lots of real life stories and tips on how to get your business noticed!  We are also delighted to have Jason from Pride Watches coming to share what happened ever since his tearful pitch on Dragons Den, and Joanne Sweeney Burke from ‘The Apprentice’ will be sharing her tips and her story with us.  Come along, meet others who want to hear about what you do and understand what its like!
