The event had a positive feel and I know that the next event will be bigger and better that is why I will be attending 14th March, 2012 Bardic Theatre, Donaghmore @ 3pm. Come along and help Dungannon area businesses.

It was inspiring to hear local business success stories who now run large successful companies giving tips, advice and discussing what we can all do to help.

I attended this event and provided some free advice to local business people.

The discussion from local business success stories included Paul Byrne (Country Stoves), Cathal Hagan (H2 Engineering), Sean Cavanagh (Cavanagh Kelly Accountants), Maire McAvoy (McAvoy Group) and Ralph Brown (Grange Lodge).

Up For Business is a campaign for those of us that are fed up with all this depressing conversation in the business community and want to get up and do something. We are starting 2012 with the belief that you can be realistic about doing business whilst also being peaceful, happy and living life to the full.

So if you are in business and want to be in place where you can be surrounded with like-minded positive entrepreneurs sign up now and make a difference.

Are you up for it?
Over 40 local advisers, mentors and experts in many business disciplines are offering their services free of charge to business entrepreneurs on at 3pm on 1st March in CRAIC Arts Centre, Coalisland, and at 3 pm on 14th March in the Bardic Theatre, Donaghmore. Like a “speed dating” event, visitors will have the opportunity to have 30-minute long “speed mentoring” meetings with the experts of their choice.

If you would like to register to attend then complete the on-line registration form and tick which business issues you would like to get free mentoring in. During the event there will also be motivational speakers and experts from various business disciplines giving short public presentations to businesses that attend.

Communities around Ireland are being inspired by the actions of Drogheda’s citizens in the TV series ‘Local Heroes – A Town Fights Back’
