first_imgBusinesses in Donegal will get the opportunity to perform a Business Health check and determine if their enterprise is fit for the future, at a fantastic event organised as part of this year’s Enterprising Donegal Business Week.Andrew CurryThe Futures Company event will take place in An Grianan, Hotel, Burt on Thursday March 6th from 9am to 1pm and according to Andrew Curry who will deliver the programme, those who attend will learn how to re-focus on the needs of their customers.“It doesn’t matter whether you are a large multi-national or a sole trader, your customer is the key to your survival, development and growth. “Sometimes when you are consumed with everything that is involved in running a business you can lose sight of that. This event will help you re-focus on your customer and their needs,” Mr. Curry said.He added that those who attend the event in Burt will get an opportunity to look at what the needs of their customer are, and to determine if there are things they could change to acquire more customers.“As part of the morning event we will look at some of the consumer trends and how things are changing globally and those attending will get to ask questions and try to determine if they are really selling the right things to the right people.”The Thursday event will, said Mr. Curry, be one of participation, with those in attendance very much taking part in the process, asking questions and interacting with the other businesses attending. “At the end of the event, everyone will be able to take away worksheets of the morning’s learning and they will be able to bring that back to their business to look again at how they can make adjustments or improvements. They will be able to perform a business health check,” he added.The Futures Company has glowing testimonials from huge companies like Coca-Cola, Kraft Foods, GlaxoSmithKline and Diageo to name but a few, but their Director Andrew Curry said the principles apply every bit as much to a small business – perhaps indeed, even more so – since the loss of even a few customers can often have a massive impact on a small business.“The event will be a great way to re-focus on who your customer actually is and hopefully everyone will go away with one or two ideas on how to improve their business and build on their customer base for the future,” he said.Of course the Futures Company event in An Grianan Hotel is just one of many lined up as part of the terrific line-up organised for the 10th annual Donegal Enterprise Week.“This year’s programme once again has a terrific range of speakers, workshops and seminars all aimed at providing opportunities for learning and networking. The ultimate objective is to help established businesses and indeed new start-ups to grow and develop, which will assist the economy of our county,” Michael Tunney, CEO of DCEB said. “The full line-up of events is available online and while all of the events are free, it is necessary to register and we’d urge people to visit to have a look at the week’s programme and to register as soon as possible,” Mr. Tunney added.He concluded: “Having teamed up with Sendmode as a partner this year, people can also receive text information and reminders about Donegal Enterprise Week if they free text DEW to 50015.”County & City Enterprise Boards are funded by the Irish Government and part-funded by the European Union under the National Development Plan 2007-2013.DONEGAL BUSINESSES TO GET CHANCE TO GET HEALTH CHECK-UP! was last modified: February 25th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Andrew CurryDonegal Business Weeklast_img
