04-Feb-2019 Top Tips for Business Success in 2019

 

The newly refurbished offices of the First Trust bank, Coleraine were packed to capacity last Thursday evening as we kicked off our Women in Business programme for 2019. The event reached out to our local female entrepreneurs who all made the most of the opportunity presented to connect with new contacts, share experiences and support each other.

The Coleraine branch of the First Trust bank were the hosts for the evening, in partnership with Women In Business NI, Causeway Enterprise Agency and Causeway Chamber of Commerce. We welcomed Eleanor Chambers McEvoy, serial entrepreneur and Northern Ireland’s newly appointed Ambassador for Entrepreneurship (on behalf of Invest NI) as our keynote speaker. A former Dragon on RTE’s Dragons Den and having successfully built and sold two companies and broken new ground as the first independent low-cost supplier in the NI electricity market with Budget Energy, she had great insights and experience to share with the audience.

Eleanor encourages us to dream big and develop a plan to deliver, shaking off the mindset of fear and the “I can’t do it” attitude we are all so good at adopting. “It’s time we realised that its none of our business what others think of us and we need to get out of our own way and break through those glass ceilings we impose on ourselves” she urged. A fear of failure she said, is a Northern Irish trait that we too readily allow to take a grip on us, holding us back from our true potential.

Eleanor’s message was loud and clear – we all need to embrace failure and learn from our mistakes so that we can be stronger, wiser smarter and more successful in our businesses. We need to realise that failure is our journey to significance.

The next Women in Business event in Coleraine is on 27th February 2019, followed by the 3rd Annual Female Entrepreneur Conference in the Galgorm Resort & Spa on Friday 8th March. More details of these events can be found HERE

Digital Manufacturing - Made Smarter Workshop

 

Digital Manufacturing - Made Smarter Workshop

27 Feb 12:30 to 16:45
Location
Invest NI HQ, Bedford Street, Belfast
1 Bedford Square,
Belfast,
United Kingdom
BT2 7ES
Overview
As a result of the Made Smarter Review, the government has announced £147m support to improve UK manufacturing productivity through digital manufacturing. This workshop will identify key challenges and opportunities with the aim of developing a digital vision for Northern Ireland manufacturing. It will also outline the funding available through the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF), the eligible costs and the type of project the ISCF is keen to support.
Why attend?
As well as offering guidance on how to make a strong application, the workshop will provide an opportunity for networking to encourage collaboration and cluster development. This will enable the formation of a platform for local clusters to develop strong consortia and make a strong case for support to the ISCF.
The event is primarily targeted at:
  • manufacturing companies
  • technology providers
  • public bodies
  • councils
  • government and academia

 

We hope you will be able to come along and help shape a digital manufacturing vision for Northern Ireland.
