Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is hosting its first ever Enterprise Week, in partnership with the local enterprise agencies, Omagh Enterprise Company Ltd and Fermanagh Enterprise Ltd.  The week-long event, which focuses on fostering enterprise throughout the region, will run from Monday 29 February to Friday 4 March 2016.

This exciting event is aimed at the complete spectrum of the business sector, including start-ups, entrepreneurs considering starting a business, established SMEs, company directors and anyone who wants to learn and grow their business.

Enterprise Week will be five-days of free, dynamic business events, workshops, seminars and networking opportunities, delivered by leading experts. Events will be held at locations across the district, including Enniskillen, Dromore, Irvinestown and Omagh. Wide ranging topical advice for businesses will include  e-commerce, digital marketing, website and Facebook training as well as advice for food and tourism business, social enterprises and funding advice to name but a few.

Speaking about Enterprise Week, the Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Thomas O’Reilly welcomed the week-long series of events which will ensure our business community is provided with a supportive environment in which they can network, explore opportunities and learn how to run their business more effectively.

“As a Council we are committed to actively supporting local businesses and I have no doubt Enterprise Week will help address many of the issues our SMEs face on a daily basis.  Through assistance like this, and other forms of support the Council offers, we look forward to seeing the continued growth and expansion of our local businesses over the coming years,” Councillor Reilly added.
