Driving Growth: Noel Davidson and Muireann Fitzmaurice will challenge local business owners to strive for growth at Local Enterprise Week 2020.

Free workshop to get Local Enterprise Week 2020 up and running

Being in business is a lot like being in an allotment, you know there’s great potential for growth but achieving it can often seem difficult. So it’s always a good idea to seek advice from someone who knows. 

Thomas McEvoy of Louth County Council’s Local Enterprise Office is to business in Louth as Monty Don is to gardening. He can help anyone that’s interested enough to listen and he has a nice relaxed style about him. 

We're not sure if he has dogs but he does have access to some of the best business knowledge around and he’s more than happy to put it at your disposal. 

“Want to grow your business? Know that there’s greater potential? Need some help in developing your plan of action to drive that growth? Well, the first event of Local Enterprise Week 2020 is definitely for you!” says Monty, sorry Thomas, in a statement issued today.

He continues “We’re inviting business owners to join us for a free interactive half-day workshop on Monday 2nd March. The goals are to help business improve productivity, competitiveness and sustainability. We want to show businesses how they can innovate and drive efficiency.” 

Hosted by Muireann Fitzmaurice and Noel Davidson of The Entrepreneurs Academy, this workshop will use the latest techniques and strategies. It will also showcase the supports that the Local Enterprise Office Louth can offer business as they grow.   

By the end of the workshop, business owners will have learned valuable new productivity, customer acquisition and marketing skills. Participants will also develop a business vision for the year ahead and clearly define the actions needed to achieve their ambitious goals. 

Thomas concludes “Taking place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Dundalk, this free morning workshop will be followed by a light lunch. This networking time will provide a valuable opportunity to talk one-to-one with the trainers and fellow entrepreneurs. Places are free of charge but, are strictly limited, and pre-booking is essential on 

Local Enterprise Week 2020 is hosted by Louth County Council’s Local Enterprise Office in conjunction with Enterprise Ireland. Running from Monday 2nd March, Local Enterprise Week Louth features a series of 10 free events to help businesses to start, learn and grow.
