The Kilkenny County Enterprise Board is hosting a meet-and-greet event tomorrow (Thursday) at 12.30pm in the Pembroke Hotel with the view to establishing an Owner Manager Network for small-business owners and managers in the county.

The hope is to provide a forum for small-business owners and managers to meet on a regular basis to learn about best practice for running a small business, to develop new contacts and to promote their businesses.

The inaugural meeting will feature guest speaker Blaise Brosnan of MRI Wexford, management consultant and author of You Are the Limiting Factor and Jack. He will discuss how the success of the business can be highly influenced by the actions, self-belief, resilience and persistence of the owner/manager.

Facilitating the event will be Terry Harmer of NLC training, who has worked with the Enterprise Board as a trainer and mentor for nearly 15 years.
