Remember your business cards!

IDA Ireland and Enterprise Ireland are hosting a range of events during 2017 for our small to medium sized client companies. The events will be regionally based and will focus on the financial supports our Agencies have to assist you in creating an efficient operation and become more competitive. The speakers from both indigenous and multinational companies will share with you how they are building a strong supply chain to win new contracts and how their lean journey has led to real success.

This is not an opportunity to be missed and will give you a chance to meet other like-minded companies and see what is going on in your region to support businesses. Look forward to meeting you at one of our events and bring plenty of business cards to share. Please circulate this mail with your teams involved in continuous improvement and operational excellence in your organisation.

A further three events being held in Dundalk (13th June), Sligo (20th June) and Kildare (3rd October) will be confirmed at a later date.
