Ulster University is joining forces with the Causeway Chamber of Commerce and the Chartered Management Institute to offer local business leaders an expert view on the current economic trends facing businesses in Northern Ireland, and how those trends might impact their own businesses.
2016 was an incredibly eventful year, both at home and abroad, and 2017 is already presenting new and unprecedented economic challenges for businesses of all sizes. With that in mind, Dr Eoin Magennis, Senior Economist at the Ulster University Economic Policy Centre, will offer the event attendees a presentation on the current economic trends and how these may affect the performance of local government, education and businesses in the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough.
Dr Paul Beaney, Business Development Manager at Ulster University, will follow that up with a short presentation that outlines how local business leaders can access the right expertise and facilities to help their businesses both navigate the economic challenges and identify opportunities for growth.
Representatives from Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Causeway Enterprise Agency, Invest NI, Northern Regional College, North West Regional College, Roe Valley Enterprises, Connect to Success N.I. and The Carbon Trust will also be in attendance on the day to meet with local businesses.
The event will conclude with a roundtable speed networking session, where business leaders will have an opportunity to connect with local stakeholders.
The workshop will take place at Ulster University’s Coleraine campus, and local business leaders can register for the event now.
