Local Enterprise Week 2022

“It’s been another year of rapid change for local business. Adapting to that change is essential for business success and Local Enterprise Week can show you how!”

So said Louth County Council’s Head of Enterprise Thomas McEvoy this week, as he launched LEO Louth’s Local Enterprise Week programme. This busy programme of free online events will run from 7-11th March.

“Adaptability is crucial for business success. This theme underpins our programme of events for 2022. You will find events on driving efficiency and eliminating waste as well as events on increasing digitalisation and automation in your business. You will discover supports available for funding your business and responding to new business opportunities. We also have sector specific events for retail and food on offer.”

He continued “Sustainability is also another hot topic for business. We will showcase ways to improve sustainability in businesses in all sectors and outline the supports available when you are ready to get started.”

“We are delighted to once again partner with local organisations to run events during Local Enterprise Week. On Wednesday, 9th March Dundalk Chamber will host a cross border event examining the challenges of a post-Brexit trading environment. On Thursday 10th March, Drogheda Chamber will host a lunchtime seminar on saving time and money by improving business processes.”

To mark International Women’s Day, which falls during Local Enterprise Week, Network Louth will welcome Olympic gold medallist Eve McCrystal. In this interview with LMFM’s Sinead Brassil, Eve will talk about developing a winning mindset in life and business.

Business owners can also access free business advice clinics throughout the week.

“Being online for Local Enterprise Week 2022 has, once again, opened up a great opportunity for local entrepreneurs.  In addition to our own events, you can choose to join any of the national Spotlight Events, hosted by our colleagues in other Local Enterprise Offices. You will find the full line-up of Spotlight events in our brochure.”

Thomas concludes, “We invite you to take time to review the schedule and book in for the free events that you and your business need. Local Enterprise Week is designed to support you and your business and we look forward to seeing business owners throughout the week.
