The team at Local Enterprise Office Louth are inviting you to be part of Local Enterprise Week 2024. Taking place from Monday 4th to Friday 8th March, Local Enterprise Week offers loads of great free learning and networking events for local businesses.

Pamela Kerr, Senior Enterprise Development Officer at Louth’s Local Enterprise Office, explains “Being in business requires business owners to constantly learn, adapt, change and grow. And at the Local Enterprise Office, we’re here to provide really valuable support. Although we provide mentoring, training and support throughout the year, Local Enterprise Week is our chance to really showcase those and invite local businesses to come and talk to us.”

She continues “We’ve planned a dynamic schedule of events, with learning to suit businesses at all stages. Check out the line up on”

Pamela explains “We kick off the week on Monday with a really hot topic, how to use AI to make your business more efficient. Led by expert trainer Stuart Nelson, this session will support business owners in developing an action plan to introduce AI into their business.”

Throughout the week, Geraldine Johnston of Boyne Communications will deliver Idea Generation Workshops in Ardee, Drogheda and Dundalk. These evening-time sessions are a brilliant opportunity for both new and existing business owners to brainstorm ideas and innovations to help develop their business.

Sarah Mallon, Coordinator of Local Enterprise Week continues “An important part of Local Enterprise Week each year is our collaboration with business organisations like Network Louth, Drogheda Chamber and Dundalk Chamber. This year is no different. We have partnered with them to create 3 very special events for business that are open to all, regardless of whether you are members. Network Louth will host an International Women’s Day event on building self-confidence and nurturing connections. Drogheda Chamber’s Business Breakfast will focus on financial planning and insurance options for business owners. Dundalk Chamber will stage their annual Cross Border Economic Conference on the theme of building a sustainable all-Ireland economy.”

“Regionally we’re also partnering with our colleagues in LEO Cavan, Monaghan and Meath on regional events, while LEO Dún Laoghaire and LEO Kildare will host two show stopping Spotlight events. All of these events are opening to Louth businesses and you’ll find details on our website.”

She continues “These are just some of the brilliant learning and networking events and we’ll have mentoring and business advice clinics running throughout the week.”

Sarah concludes “And we’ll wrap up the week with the Louth Enterprise Awards Business lunch on Friday. It’s always a wonderful opportunity to network with other business owners and the support agencies who are here to help your business along. So whatever stage your business is at, there's something for you at Local Enterprise Week. Check out the full line-up here and book your places now. And do share this information with anyone you think should take part in this year's events.”

Local Enterprise Week is brought to you by Local Enterprise Office Louth, proudly supported by Louth County Council and Enterprise Ireland.
