The Business Summit - Steering Businesses Through Recession

The Business Summit is aimed at steering businesses through the recession. The high energy conference is the brain child of Kildare woman Geraldine Daly and Offaly man Mark Wynne. Both wanted to design a no-nonsense business event for business people by business people. The two day summit from Friday 17th - Saturday 18th Sept, held at the K Club (Kildare Spa and Country Club) adds a note of value for money luxury to the occasion.

The Business Summit is not regurgitated conference content, there will be no academics or jargon, just condensed targeted information, exactly what hard pressed businesses need to know in this climate.

The purpose of the Business Summit is to help firms take control of their bottom line. It puts business owners and senior staff in the same room as leading Irish entrepreneurs who are actively growing through the recession. This event is highly varied and more interactive than the typical conference.  Networking breaks are factored in and everyone one will get strategies to take-away.

For cutting edge material, it is very competitive working out at approx. 15.44 euro per speaker, with 16 speakers over 2 days if availing of the 247 euro early bird offer for the entire event. Compared with industry and corporate conference rates of up to 500 euro per day, this represents real value.

The diverse speakers are focused on helping Irish firms grow their business and include:

- Eddie Hobbs - Financial Guru & TV Personality

- Brody Sweeney - Entrepreneur (O'Brien's Sandwiches) & Author

- Louis Copeland - Master Tailor & Businessman

- Clodagh McKenna - Chef, Author, TV Presenter & Businesswoman

- Eoin McCabe - Coach Trainer

- Mark Wynne - Business Coach & Online Entrepreneur

- Sean Gallagher - Entrepreneur & Dragons’ Den Investor

- Nicola Byrne - Founder, 11890
