The world’s leading mentalist Keith Barry will help take local small businesses to a new level next month.

Local Enterprise Office South Dublin recently announced a magical line up of events for Local Enterprise Week with Keith Barry participating in a keynote workshop on Wednesday, March 6, to an audience of promising entrepreneurs and business owners.

The highly anticipated workshop will show the audience how to unleash their subconscious potential to break through barriers and exceed expectations in both their business and professional lives before ending with a group visualisation exercise.

This will be followed by the presentation of South Dublin’s Local Enterprise Awards in Tallaght Stadium.

The announcement came from South Dublin Local Enterprise Office (LEO), as part of the release of their jam-packed schedule of events for Local Enterprise Week 2019 which runs between March 4 and 8.

The purpose of Local Enterprise Week is to highlight the range of services and supports available to existing and potential entrepreneurs and micro and small enterprises.

Over 14,500 small businesses are expected to attend more than 380 events throughout the country during the week.

Highlights of LEO South Dublin’s Local Enterprise Week include presentations and workshops for Smart Video Content Creation, How to Tell Your Brand Story – The Power of Storytelling, Influences of New Technologies on New Businesses as well as Leadership Lessons from a Sporting Giant.

Local Enterprise Week also includes clinics and advice on interviewing skills, social media and vlogging and how to Brexit-proof your business, amongst many.

Throughout the course of the week, entrepreneurs of all ages will have the opportunity to book a place to participate in both paid and free of charge group sessions and one-to-one mentoring.

Tom Rooney, head of enterprise, LEO South Dublin says Local Enterprise Week is the ultimate Open Day for small businesses and start-ups while also giving entrepreneurs and owner managers the opportunity to network and learn, not only from experts, but also from each other.
