Former Irish Rugby star Tommy Bowe, Donegal captain Michael Murphy and Camogie star Anna Geary who is a coach on Ireland's fittest family, are all among a fantastic line-up of speakers due in Donegal from March 4-8 as part of this year's Donegal Local Enterprise Week.
The theme for the week is 'Peak Performance' and topics from engineering to food, innovation to branding, competitiveness to leadership, finance to social media will be covered in an array of events in venues right around the county.


The week-long programme put together by staff at Donegal Local Enterprise Office in conjunction with partner agencies and organisations as well as private sector businesses, will kick-off on Monday 4th March when three Donegal businesses who are driving their enterprise onwards and upwards will tell their inspiring stories.
Hosted by broadcaster Anton Savage, successful local businesses David Gildea of Cloud Ranger, Larissa Feeney of Accountant Online and Seamus McMenamin of Mantis cranes will all share their experiences and they are among many local businesses in the spotlight over the week.


"We have found over the years that is good, not only to bring in a host of experienced keynote speakers, but also to include stories from businesses here who can share their experience. Our opening event is a perfect example of that," Head of Enterprise in Donegal, Michael Tunney said.
One of the highlights of the week will be the closing event - a celebration of creative industries in Donegal on Friday 8th March with the launch of the book and short film "Donegal – We Create" but there are plenty of other highlights to choose from.


"Enterprise Week has been running in Donegal for many years now and the list of events has always reflected a response from the Local Enterprise Office, and the other enterprise support agencies and organisations, to the needs and requirements of businesses in the county. Whether your business is in the start-up phase or you want to move in a new direction to grow and expand, there is something within the week's programme to suit everyone and I would urge businesses to explore the programme and make the best of these great opportunities," the Head of Enterprise concluded. Local Enterprise Office Donegal is supported through co-funding from the Irish Government and the European Regional Development Fund 2014 – 2020.
