Dynamic programme of free online events for local business owners

For many business people, the last physical event they attended prior to Covid-19 lockdowns was a Local Enterprise Week event last March. While we may not be able to get together in person this year, our team have still planned an amazing programme of educational, informative and inspiring events for business people across the county." 

That was Thomas McEvoy speaking this week at the launch of the programme for Local Enterprise Week 2021. This busy programme of free events will run from 1-5th March and all events will take place online. 

We are proud to partner with Dundalk Chamber, Drogheda Chamber, Network Louth, DkIT to host a selection of learning and networking events. We will tackle topics such as cyber-security for SMEs, supports for start-ups, email marketing campaigns and website branding and digital marketing strategies.” 

Retail guru Miriam Simon will deliver a “Retailing in a Pandemic” seminar, outlining innovative ways to survive and thrive in this challenging environment. 

Leadership expert Joanne Hession of LIFT Ireland, will be the guest speaker at the Network Louth Local Enterprise Week event, talking about better balance in busy lives.  

There will also be free business advice clinics covering everything from general business advice to Brexit and accessing finance. 

“Being online for Local Enterprise Week 2021 has opened up a great opportunity for entrepreneurs. We are teaming up with our colleagues all around the country, who are all staging online events. This means that, in addition to our own events, business people can choose to join events that are being hosted by our colleagues in other Local Enterprise Offices. Choose from topics such as Going Green in your business, Lean, managing cashflow, innovations in AgriTech, marketing for creative businesses and so much more. It’s a brilliant line-up and really offers something for everyone.” 

Thomas concludes,  “So while we might not get to meet up for Local Enterprise Week 2021, we most certainly are bringing information, education and inspiration to. Ireland’s SMEs. Visit to see the full program of events and book your free places.
