Once in a while, great things happen. In fact, great things happen every day. We move our business forward every day. We find out things that help us in our business every day.
It’s the time of year for workshops, events, seminars. So far, my October and November calendars are full with events and traditionally, this is quite common for entrepreneurs and business owners.
A little gem that I am heavily involved with is the Cork Women in Business Group, headed my Margaret Smith and Tori Hawthorne. What a great pair, and I have written about Margaret and her appearance on nationwide recently.
This support group provides a space for women in business to find out what they need to know to help them in their business and our monthly speaking events cover finance, law, networking, sales and other relevant areas.
Towards a Networking Strategy
We are also running a series of workshops. We will kick off with a BIG BANG on Saturday, October 15th, 10:00-13:00 in the Cork International Airport Hotel– “Towards a Networking Strategy” presented by Roisin Markham of Creative Dynamix. Roisín already WOWed the group with her insightful talk at last months meeting.
A Networking Strategy is a continuous working plan that business owners will refer back to time and time again; change, update and perfect as their business evolves.
