The Innovation in Business Centre (IiBC) at Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT) Castlebar will host an Enterprise Evening entitled 'Spirit of Entrepreneurship' in the Innovation Centre, Castlebar campus, on Thursday 29th March from 6pm to 8.30 pm.

Guest speakers include the 2005 finalist of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of Year John Concannon from JFC Manufacturing in Tuam, Rory Casey from Fibrepulse in Castlebar and Dr Brendan Haffery from AMT3D in Westport.

All three speakers will relay the experience of establishing and running their own businesses, emphasizing highs and lows and highlighting lessons learned along the way.

The event includes a brief introduction from Peter Butler from GMIT Innovate West on 'Creative Thinking and Sources of Business Ideas'. GMIT Innovate West offers training to companies in the West of Ireland to help build their innovation capacity and competitiveness. The evening will include brief talks on how the GMIT Innovation Centre can benefit business start-ups and a presentation by InTime Media, a client company in the centre.

A questions and answers session will follow. Attendance is open to all. Admission is 10. Light refreshments will be provided. Booking is advisable by Friday 23rd March as places are limited. Register your attendance either by e-mail or by tel: 094-9027492

Maria Staunton, Manager IiBC, says 'it will be a unique opportunity to hear at first hand the experiences of people whove set up their own businesses and hopefully in turn will inspire more people with innovative ideas to bring them to fruition.'

'The Spirit of Entrepreneurship' evening takes place on Thursday, 29th March from 6pm to 8.30 pm in the Innovation in Business Centre (IiBC) at GMIT Castlebar.
