To date IDA Ireland and Enterprise Ireland have hosted events in Galway, Athlone and Cork for our small to medium sized client companies. The events have been regionally based and focused on the financial supports our Agencies offer to assist in creating an efficient operation and become more competitive. Speakers from both indigenous and multinational companies have shared how they are building a strong supply chain to win new contracts and how their lean journey has led to real success.
This is an opportunity not 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 two events being held in Sligo (20th June) and Kildare (3rd October) will be confirmed at a later date.
