With a panel of professional experts, the event will give an indication to SMEs what type of planning and actions they need to be taking now as the economy looks tentatively towards reopening and regrowth in the Spring.

With the double impact of Covid-19 and end of transition, 2021 has been a challenging start for a number of sectors, but this event looks to the positive, tangible actions that can be taken in areas like supply chain, profitability and other key operations.

FSB Regional Chair, Brendan Kearney continued: “We know that many of our members and other small businesses are still in a period of restriction and many have been asking the question ‘what now?’. We hope that this event will give some direction to those who are wondering what their priorities should be at the minute and I encourage anyone involved with a small business to take the hour to attend the event.”

The event panel includes Mairead Mackle (CEO of Tarasis Enterprises), Feargal McCormack (MD of PKF-FPM Accountants), Brian Reid (CEO of Deli-Lites), Justin McGorman (Director of Reveal Business) and will be hosted by FSB Area Leader and Director of Houston Solutions, Conor Houston. This group brings years of experience, innovation and ambition together in what promises to be an unmissable event in the business calendar.
