Challenging Times – New Opportunities
ISME ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2016
The 2016 ISME Annual Conference will be taking place on Friday November 11th in the RDS, Dublin. This Conference is building on Ireland’s track record as the best country in Europe for Innovation (European Commission Score board report, July 2016) with the theme “Challenging Times – New Opportunities.” The conference promises to be an excellent day where many of the concerns of the SME sector will be addressed and, more importantly, where solutions will be debated by expert speakers and analysts.
Commenting on this year’s conference, incoming Chief Executive Mr Neil McDonnell said
“’Challenging Times- New Opportunities’ really sums up the spirit of small enterprise in the current uncertainty. We know we face huge challenges, of which Brexit is only one. But we also know that an improving economy and a post-Brexit European Union present a wealth of opportunities to our native entrepreneurs”
“We look forward to identifying and discussing some of these with our contributors on 11th November.”
Senator Pádraig Ó Céidigh, founder of Aer Arann and serial entrepreneur is the keynote speaker and the conference will be chaired by Conall O Móráin, presenter of The Sunday Business Show on Today FM.
This year’s conference is sponsored by Post Logistics – a new service from An Post providing a high quality, standardised, freight forwarding and groupage service for small to medium sized businesses looking to export pallets to the UK and Europe.
