Waterford Local Enterprise Office announces new Entrepreneur Retreat

Waterford Local Enterprise Office has announced a new ‘Entrepreneur Retreat’ offering entrepreneurs and executives a mentoring boot camp opportunity to hone their skills in strategic business planning and leadership.

The 48 hour residential retreat which is set to take place on September 21st and 22nd at Waterford’s Woodhouse Estate will be led by experts to guide and mentor the participants as they reflect and their own businesses and create space to plan the new strategic goals and ambitions of the enterprise in order to move forward and grow.

The team at Waterford Local Enterprise Office will be joined by the entrepreneurial experts from ‘The Entrepreneurs Academy’ to lead and guide the course content. The Entrepreneurs Academy was established in 1998 by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs. They are the leading authority on entrepreneurship and leadership in Ireland, revolutionalising how business is done. Their trainers have trained over 30,000 people in Ireland, helping them to maximise their potential in life and business.

Commenting on the upcoming event, Head of Enterprise at Waterford Local Enterprise Office Richie Walsh said, “During the recent Waterford Local Enterprise event with Sean Gallagher, one of the key nuggets offered by the expert businessman was to take the time to work ‘ON’ your business and not always ‘IN’ your business. We are delighted to have now created that exact opportunity for Waterford’s entrepreneurs and business leaders, we have designed this event in a manner which will enable participants to work on the future success of their own businesses and to identify and develop a roadmap to navigate their next set of challenges during that phase. This isn’t quite a retreat in the traditional sense but more of an intensive weekend course run with military-like precision and designed to broaden the minds of the attending entrepreneurs. Think boot camp for business.

Eight places are available on the Entrepreneur Retreat, ensuring that each participant will gain from every learning opportunity and also allow time for one to one discussions and small group workshops. The event will offer participants guidance in high impact leadership and an in-depth opportunity to work on planning each of their businesses strategically to maximise their future potential.

In order to apply for a place interested participants must complete an Expression of Interest form. The closing date for applications is September 7th at 3 pm. The Entrepreneurs Retreat is priced at €200 per person and there are just 8 places available.
