Retreat to success!

LEO Entrepreneur RetreatFollowing the success of Local Enterprise Office Waterford Entrepreneur Retreat last year, applications are invited for this year’s residential Entrepreneur retreat.

Returning to Waterford’s Woodhouse Estate in Stradbally on June 14th and June 15th, this two-day event will be led by business experts and mentors and will challenge entrepreneurs to see their businesses with a fresh perspective.

Once again, the team at Waterford Local Enterprise Office will be joined by the entrepreneurial experts to lead and guide the course content.

Stephen Walsh of Aerhaus Ventilation was a participant on last years retreat and said the experience was hugely beneficial to him, both on a personal and a business level.

“Last year we were at a phase with the business where we needed to equip ourselves with the right tools to build on what we had to date and to take the company to the next level. I came to the retreat in 2018 as I wanted to learn from others. It was a great experience and I certainly gained an insight into how the other participants faced and overcame the challenges that are all too common in business.”

Richie Walsh, Head of Enterprise at LEO Waterford is looking forward to the return of the Retreat in June. “The residential retreat is the perfect opportunity for entrepreneurs to genuinely and absolutely work on their business rather than in their business. The programme delivered by the mentors and expert facilitators, along with the engagement of the participants allows those involved to gain valuable insight into high impact leadership and how to strategically maximise their future potential.”

“The number of places is restricted to eight business leaders, so there will be a lot of focus on their individual business strategies, but it will also harness the collective knowledge and experience of the group in order to plan new strategic goals to move forward and grow.”

The LEO Waterford Entrepreneur Retreat is priced at €200 per person and if you are interested in taking part visit www.localenterprise.ie/Waterford/

The closing date for expressions of interest is midday on Tuesday, May 28th and the successful entrepreneurs will be notified by 5.00p.m. on Friday, May 31st.
