LEO Limerick is offering a range of training workshops and bespoke one-to-one clinics for businesses and entrepreneurs throughout Local Enterprise Week 2022.

Businesses across Limerick are being encouraged to take advantage of the array of events and topics at this year’s Local Enterprise Week 2022. 

The initiative of the Local Enterprise Offices takes place from March 07 – 11 with more than 220 events for businesses and entrepreneurs taking place in person and online across the country.

The theme of Local Enterprise Week 2022 is “Making It Happen” and is focused on helping businesses to look forward and to future-proof themselves for the years ahead.

LEO Limerick is offering a range of training workshops and bespoke one-to-one clinics for businesses and entrepreneurs on a range of topics including business planning, HR, Finance, cyber-security and grant funding.

The team is also hosting a national ‘Food Trends’ panel to examine the latest consumer trends for food businesses.

This is one of the national online spotlight events covering everything from digitalisation and exporting to future proofing your business and boosting your business online.

Mike Cantwell, Head of Enterprise, Local Enterprise Office Limerick said: “Local Enterprise Week 2022 offers existing businesses and those considering starting a business an excellent opportunity to engage with the wide range of supports offered through LEO’s.”

“In addition to national “Spotlight” events, we are offering a full programme of events over five days on a range of topics from marketing to financing your business as well as a range of one-to-one clinics with business experts to support owner-managers.”

“As we reopen, business week is more relevant than ever and my advice is to have a look at the events taking place by booking early”.

Ann Coffey Lynch from Braw, a chocolate and bakery business in Crossagalla, Limerick, who will be a guest speaker at the national panel on Food Trends said: “We have received great support from Limerick Local Enterprise Office, not just financially to set up and buy equipment, but through training, mentoring and networking contacts. I would encourage anyone to book in and take this chance to find out about the supports available to start out or grow. The Food Trends event will feature speakers from local business Braw Bakes, Bord Bia Research Unit, Strong Roots, Drop Chef and Musgraves.”

Local Enterprise Week is the perfect opportunity for many businesses to dip into a specific area of interest and gather information on a topic that may be relevant to their business now or in the future. If you are just starting your entrepreneurial journey it will help you take those first steps.
