Leading Businessman and former Dragon Sean Gallagher to share the secrets of his success

Limerick’s entrepreneurs and potential entrepreneurs will get an ideal opportunity to gain insight from one of Ireland’s leading entrepreneurs at an event organised by the Local Enterprise Office (LEO) Limerick.

Leading businessman and former TV Dragon Sean Gallagher will give a talk at the next Business Networking Event hosted by LEO Limerick, in Thomond Park on Wednesday 30 May 2018 from 6 pm until 8.30pm.

Sean Gallagher is a well-known entrepreneur, speaker, and business writer and is recognised as a champion of small and medium-sized businesses.  He is co-founder and CEO of leading commercial property company, Clyde Real Estate.  He has been an investor on the popular TV Show, Dragons’ Den and was a finalist in the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards.


A strong believer in the power of positive stories, Sean has written in the Business Section of the Sunday Independent for the last five and a half years where he profiles successful entrepreneurs whose stories he hopes will help inform and inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs. He has also just completed his first book, ‘Secrets to Success- Inspiring Stories from Leading Entrepreneurs’.
