A few weeks ago, I was talking to some business colleagues of mine about how we can help people to help themselves in the current economy and how we could help them develop a positive mindset. Something that would help individuals to see what they can do for themselves and to take control of their lives. I firmly believe that it will take the collective positive will and momentum of people generally to help get our country on the path to recovery. We came up with the following seminar idea. So I am delighted to announce that Limerick Chamber will partner with Franchise Connections, John Fitzgerald from RTE’s TV series “Rising from Redundancy” and Limerick Institute of Technology to present a free educational seminar “Finding the Entrepreneur within”. This is suitable for anyone interested in taking the first step in business regardless of their current work status or qualifications. It is being held on the evening of Wednesday 20th October between 6.30 pm and 8.30 pm in the LIT Millennium Theatre. So if you know of anyone who has an interest in starting their own business with a low level of risk, a very high success rate with information on how to access support and finance, or indeed anyone who wants to share in a positive uplifting evening, please have them check out this seminar on www.theentrepreneurwithin.eventbrite.com or www.lit.ie .
