This event is no longer available

The Fermanagh and Omagh Network will comprise approximately 15 owner-managers of small companies across Fermanagh and Omagh led by two executives from Plato parent companies - Balcas and Telestack Solutions. Each group generally meets once a month to address an agreed range of management and growth issues.

Discussions which form a central part of each meeting, allow group members to compare experiences and jointly consider individual problems. The process is at all times directed by participants which ensure that it is directly relevant and applicable to the challenges faced by small business. Group meetings are complemented by mentoring on an individual basis by the PLATO Managers/Consultants and executives from PLATO parent companies. Periodically more formal training seminars, involve participants from all PLATO groups and the wider network.

Therefore within a PLATO network, managers of small companies have an opportunity to access training, to get advice and assistance from specialists in large companies, to share experiences and therefore learn from one another. They can also access information and develop effective support structures and sounding boards for making management decisions.

Plato EBR
As the relationships grow in a PLATO network, so do the range of commercial opportunities that arise from business linkages. There are opportunities to share resources e.g. information, staff, premises or equipment, to acquire new customers and suppliers or pursue joint ventures. As a result, many PLATO companies have developed new business relationships through the PLATO network.
