A special, and free, workshop for retailers in Ardee is among the events on the schedule for this year’s Local Enterprise Week – which takes place from March 6th to March 10th across the country.
Retail expert Keith Harford, who has worked with some of Ireland’s leading retailers and also acted as retail advisor to Feargal Quinn’s popular RTE One programme ‘Feargal Quinn’s Retail Therapy’, will hold the seminar on Tuesday March 7th in Ardee’s DeeHub.
The free half-day events will also take place on Tuesday 7th and Wednesday 8th March in Dundalk and Drogheda.
The short but high impact seminars will address global retail trends – what’s hot and what’s not in 2017, simple and realistic retail growth strategies, improving your own management effectiveness and marketing on a shoestring.
Seminars are ideal for owners and managers in a whole host of sectors including retail, restaurants and cafes, hotels, gyms, beauty salons, hairdressers, opticians, dentists, GPs and other service providers.
“Louth’s Local Enterprise Office has lots of ways to support retailers in the county,” Thomas McEvoy, Head of Enterprise in Louth said. “Many of the supports are new because of the expanded remit of the Enterprise Office in Louth County Council so now is a good time to get in touch to find out more.”
The council is now providing new offerings including grants for shop front improvements and supports for new and small businesses occupying vacant premises. Retailers are also able to access business advice and training supports through the Local Enterprise Office.
