WHETHER you’ve always dreamed of starting your own business, or you’re ready to take the next steps in your journey to success, there’s no shortage of inspiration, advice and support available from leading figures across a range of industries during Mid and East Antrim Borough Council’s Enterprise Week from 18 to 22 November.
From fully interactive workshops hosted by world-leading digital and tech experts Catalyst, to insights from voluntary and public sector organisations on how to become an Autism Friendly Business, this year’s events programme is packed with opportunities to become involved in the global campaign to support all-things enterprise.
Young people from local post-primary schools will be given a first-hand introduction to the transport and logistics industry during a tour of Larne Port at a fascinating event being hosted by Council in partnership with P&O Ferries and the Chartered Institute for Logistics and Transport, while award-winning celebrity chef Brian McDermott of the newly restored Foyle Hotel in Moville will share his secret recipe to success at Hillstown Brewery at Whitesides Corner, where you’ll also have a chance to hear from farmer turned brewer Nigel Logan.
There’s still time to book your place on one of the many events, which include networking breakfasts, a workshop for those considering childminding as a career, and the chance to hear from some of the most inspiring female business leaders at an event aimed at women who have taken a career break and who are now ready to get back into the workforce.
The panel for Returning to Work with Confidence includes Bespoke Communications Co-Founder and Director Camilla Long, Sinéad Sharkey-Steenson, Founder and Managing Director of Generation Women, and the 2018 Apprentice of the Year Tammy Whelan.
