05-Dec-2016 Jayne brings home ‘Women in Business Award’ to the North Coast


Seen here recently receiving ‘Best in Professional Services-Small Business’, is winner Jayne Taggart Chief Executive of the Causeway Enterprise Agency Coleraine, presented by Women in Business with Sponsor Representative from the Progressive Building Society.

Jayne brings home ‘Women in Business Award’ to the North Coast.

In recognition of the exceptional work delivered by Jayne Taggart CEO of the Causeway Enterprise Agency in Coleraine, Women in Business has presented Jayne with the ‘Best in Professional Services – Small Business’ Award.

The annual award ceremony showcases and acknowledges the hard work and achievements of some of the most successful, entrepreneurial and inspiring business women throughout Northern Ireland. Now in their 6th year, all sectors and industries are invited so that the best of home grown female entrepreneurs are recognised. This is particularly for the valuable contribution that women make to the economic life of Northern Ireland.

Jayne Taggart, Chief Executive Causeway Enterprise Agency Coleraine, is an ambassador and coordinator of the Women in Business network for the Causeway Coast & Glens area. Proactively developing opportunities for business networking events, these are held throughout the north coast inviting members and non-members to participate.

Upon receiving her award, Jayne stated “this is a great honour for me and my team at the CEA. I wish to acknowledge their support, as we are all very passionate about making the north coast a great place to do business.

“I genuinely feel privileged to do the work we do, supporting our start-ups and micro businesses within the area. It is a rewarding position, to be able to support others to realise their dreams. Making that leap of faith to start your own business shows great courage, particularly for female entrepreneurs”.

John Armstrong, Chairman of the Causeway Enterprise Agency stated, “We are delighted to hear of Jayne’s success in the Women in Business awards. This reflects accurately her professional efforts in the local community and as CEO of Causeway Enterprise Agency she is delivering on the ambitious strategic goals that have been set by the Board.”

This award was judged on businesswoman who consistently exceed the requirements of internal and external customers. This includes consistently meeting or exceeding challenging objectives, delivering the highest levels of service responsiveness and innovation within a professional practice.

Jayne continued, “We have some amazing ambassadors and role models in this area and it was fantastic to see three of them recognised for their business development. These include winner of the ‘WIB Excellence in IT’ award Sue McLaughlin of Bluebird Care and finalists Geri Martin of Chocolate Manor and Alex McGarry of The Bubbly Bar.

“I strongly encourage any new entrepreneurs, especially women, to come forward with their ideas, and avail of the opportunities to showcase their achievements and support others. These awards put out a strong message that women across the country are making a positive contribution to our local economy. I extend a warm welcome for more to join our local network, and enjoy the benefits of networking with a group of like-minded women, sharing the challenges and journey of running a business, and who knows…become future award nominees and winners themselves!”

How to Maintain your success in uncertain times

How to maintain your success in uncertain times.


How would you fancy the job of managing the country’s finances in this uncertain climate? It is not something I would relish! We are surrounded by uncertainty to such an extent that some might say it is another way of saying chaos. Whether we like it or not, it is here for the foreseeable future.


So - let’s say you stay in your current job and business - what needs to happen for you to survive? More than ever you need to be adaptable, while maintaining your core strengths and keeping engaged with your own team, with customers and with suppliers.


I’m well aware that budgets are stretched and that time is a limited resource. I can help you become a more flexible and engaged company through a series of challenging workshops which focus on personal and professional development. These are frequently called the ‘soft’ skills, but to my mind they are the ‘hard’ skills, challenging you to look at yourself and at relationships with others. They are not for the fainthearted!


Whether you’re the boss, the manager or a team member, my hour-long workshop shorts are targeted to help you understand teamwork, direction, communication and personal development for you and your staff. This bolsters your ability as a business to weather the storms of economic bootstrapping, employee disaffection and who knows what else may be on the horizon.


If you’re interested in a little help in maintaining your successful business then I invite you to do something a little differently today.


Check out my website for more details by clicking here for Workshop Shorts - the dates and rates . If you feel you’d like a more tailored approach or just the workshops delivered in house then feel free to email me directly at or call me on 07737 315680.


I look forward to hearing from you.
Yours sincerely
Purvis Campbell
