EW 2018 Launch

Local Enterprise Week 2018

Businesses urged to look to the future


Businesses in Donegal will get the chance to look forward with confidence by taking note of some of the fantastic free advice on offer during this year’s Local Enterprise Week events from March 5th-9th. The theme for the week is “Back to the Future” and the week-long programme put together by Local Enterprise Office, Donegal, in conjunction with partner agencies, includes talks, workshops and seminars on a huge array of important business topics.

Before proceedings get under way in Donegal on Monday 5th March, the business community in the county will be collectively holding its breath in hope and expectation for Thomas McLaughlin of Tadáias and Ciara McGlynn of Niche Specialist Staffing Partners who represent Donegal in the National final of Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur. That final will take place in Dublin on March 4th, but events in Donegal kick off on Monday 5th March in Solis Lough Eske, Donegal Town with the official launch of the Week by Cathoirleach Cllr. Gerry McMonagle. The launch will then be followed by a keynote address from Donagh Kelly of the KN group who will share his story of creating and growing a national brand.

The week’s events will see a fantastic mix of local, national and international speakers at venues across the county with topics from Social Media, Export, Manufacturing, Marketing, Diaspora and many more all covered over the course of the week. One of the highlights of the week will come with a celebration of manufacturing in Donegal in Buncrana Cinema on Monday 5th March with the launch of the book and short film “Donegal – We make Things” but there are plenty of other highlights to choose from as well.

There are events across the county from Donegal Town to Buncrana, Letterkenny, Kilcar, Redcastle, Dungloe, Downings, Fintown Gweedore and Glencolmcille – with plenty of topics to choose from. Indeed there are well over twenty events to choose from at locations right around Donegal and all are free to attend.
