01-Dec-2015 Continued Success for Danielle!

After a sweet year of success, the stars of the local enterprise sector were celebrated at the annual Enterprise Northern Ireland awards, held at the Hilton Hotel in Belfast on Thursday 26th November. Hosted by broadcaster Claire McCollum, the glittering evening showcased the work done by the Northern Ireland small business community and the efforts of the local enterprise agency network in supporting business development.

The event was opened with an address from Patsy McGlone MLA and the audience also enjoyed an engaging and inspiring presentation from Tom Griffiths, founder of, who is widely regarded as the creator of the modern gap year industry.

There were many worthy winners at the ceremony but the Exploring Enterprise Programme Personal Development Award was of particular local interest. Danielle Tagg, Director/Manager of Articlave Day Care Nursery was singled out as the winner, having impressed the judges with her engagement in the programme and her achievement of the various milestones and outcomes along the way. They also felt that she displayed exceptional commitment and dedication in overcoming adversity. Her journey from having no recognised qualifications or experience in her chosen sector to a business owner and employer is an encouragement to everyone. Thanks to Exploring Enterprise and her own hard work Danielle has now opened a Daycare Nursery in Articlave which employs 5 full time and 3 part time staff.

The Exploring Enterprise Programme develops employment opportunities for the long term unemployed, providing one to one advice and training, leading to an award in Understanding Business Enterprise. In the past twelve months over 500 participants have completed the programme.

Jayne Taggart, CEO of Causeway Enterprise Agency said:”Exploring Enterprise is a key programme of support and we in Causeway are delighted that it has helped Danielle to start up and grow such a promising business.”

Chief Executive of Enterprise Northern Ireland, Gordon Gough, said: “Enterprise Northern Ireland is the voice of local entrepreneurship and we’re very pleased to celebrate great examples of local ingenuity and talent. Helping to develop strong companies that create employment and export across the world is an important part of what we do.

“These awards are an excellent chance to recognise the hard work and dedication of businesses and members of the Enterprise Northern Ireland network. Whether it is through offering business support or highlighting access to finance initiatives, our network of enterprise agencies is playing an important role in stimulating Northern Ireland’s economy.”

Keith Liggett from Legacy Wealth, the headline sponsor of the Awards said: “We were proud to support the awards again this year to show our commitment in helping to encourage innovation and entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurial tenacity and determination is alive and well and the 2015 Northern Ireland Enterprise Awards certainly showcased Northern Ireland’s brightest business talent.”
