LEO export network share best practices to build relationships
THE recently formed Local Enterprise Office (LEO) South Dublin Exporters Network met at an in-person event held in County Hall, Tallaght, to build their business relationships and share best practices as they bid to build upon their export sales activities and achievements.
Up to 20 micro-businesses from a variety of sectors including tech and communications, manufacturing, food and drink and fashion and footwear, met in Tallaght to establish the LEO South Dublin Exporters Network.
Achievements and challenges were shared openly by these new exporting businesses in this peer-to-peer forum that was facilitated by LEO South Dublin.
While many businesses identified opportunities to work together to develop export market opportunities it also served to inform LEO’s training and support planning for future Export Development programmes.
The benefits of the in-person networking event were strongly evident and members reported that a follow up is eagerly awaited.
Local Enterprise Office South Dublin has featured a number of events for Local Enterprise Week which runs from Monday March 7-11.
This included the Internationalising Your Business event on March 8.
Local Enterprise Week is the perfect opportunity for many businesses to dip into a specific area of interest and gather information on a wide range of topics that may be relevant to their business now or in the future.
It also provides the perfect opportunity for someone who may be interested in starting a business to get an idea of some of the key areas of focus and how to take those first steps.
