Calling all entrepreneurs: Join our event and learn what’s next for Irish business

What's new in Irish entrepreneurship? Find out at our virtual event on June 28, where top business leaders will share key strategies for success and how to future-proof your business.

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” — Peter Drucker

In 2022, the business landscape has never been more exciting, reaping considerable and varied rewards; but it’s also never been more precarious. As founders rise to new challenges whilst applying learning from recent years of obstacles and adaptivity, there’s a lot to take on board in steering a venture to success. 

And so, IMAGE Media in partnership with PwC, presents a very focused session calling on those at the frontline of entrepreneurship to identify the best path forward for Irish business founders and leaders.

Over the course of this virtual event, our panel will analyse what’s changed in Irish entrepreneurship and what hasn’t. Where is business going? What potential is out there? And what difficulties need to be identified and overcome?

Join us and learn from field leaders. Our panel includes Jennifer Melia, technology and services manager at Enterprise Ireland, Gráinne Mullins, founder of Grá Chocolates, Mairead Harbron, tax partner at PwC, and moderator Melanie Morris, IMAGE contributing editor.

We’ll Discuss:

  • Who is best in class? What are they doing, and what can we learn from them?
  • Control the controllables – where should we focus our energies for optimal success?
  • What help is out there? We’ll cover available funding, mentorship and entrepreneurial programmes and how to access them.
  • Future-proofing your business – how to create a succession plan to give your venture longevity without your constant input.
