ISME roadshow set for Cork return

The Irish SME Association (ISME) roadshow series is back and it is set to hit Cork this October.

The roadshow starts in September in Dublin but will also visit Meath, Kildare, Wexford, Limerick, Roscommon and Galway. Refreshments are provided at all events; admission is free, and all businesses are welcome to attend.

The programme for the series will include an address by ISME’s CEO Neil McDonnell with an update on ISME activity. There will also be discussions and talks by guest speakers about key topics for businesses today; and ending with Pitch my business – a networking event allowing business representatives to give a 2 minute pitch and network with fellow businesspeople.

The duration will be approximately two hours, including a Q&A session. ISME is inviting those who register to attend to send questions or comments and they will be used at each event.

Commenting on the series ISME Chief Executive, Neil McDonnell said: “After two and a half years of remote meetings, it is great for us to be back on the road, meeting members and other business owners. This is a really difficult time for many businesses, with rising costs, lower consumer confidence, and increasing regulation on the way. But there is information and help available to for you, and we look forward to addressing your issues during our roadshows.”

The roadshow will kick off in September with two events in Dublin. The Cork roadshow takes place on Thursday 13 October from 9-11am at Harbour Suite 8, Clayton Hotel Silver Springs.
