It's the New Year and a time of resolutions, plans and goals for many of us. Indeed some may be considering a transition to self-employment, a move which can, for some, seem almost impossible. Help is at hand!
The January JCI Mayo meeting will be focusing on just this topic. Mayo-based SME Consultant and owner of Irish Business Intelligence, Olwen Dawe, will be providing a whistle-stop tour of the reasons why people should consider starting up their own enterprise, how they go about it and the supports they may be eligible for.
Taking place on Thursday 26th of January in the Harlequin Hotel, Castlebar at 7:30pm, "The Why, How and Who of Starting Up" will give attendees expert insight into the key areas a starting up an enterprise. This is a free event.
Based in Westport, Olwen Dawe provides start-up coaching for fledgling enterprises, as well as working with SMEs as a business partner, providing consulting advice in areas relating to strategy, communications and messaging. Olwen also works with enterprise and support agencies in the Western region, and is Ex-Officio President of Network Mayo.
