Women Entering Business

Postby Aurora » Wed Feb 28, 2007 12:17 pm

Hi Everybody

I am thinking of doing a start your own business course. I have already started the company, but there is a few things that I would like to brush up on, like accounts, taxation, financing etc

I see there are two courses really in dublin with the enterprise board that I could do the "Women Entering Business" or "Start your own Business". Just wondering has anyone done them and which one would they reccommend?

I like the idea of the women only one but it would appear from the course discription that it doesn't go into as much detail as the other one.

Would appreciate any feedback.

Warm Regards

Aurora

Hi Aurora,

As the previous network manager for several Women in Business networks run by the County & City Enterprise Boards (www.enterpriseboards.ie) I would strongly recommend the Women Entering Business Programme.

Many women that I dealt with took part in this course and found it so beneficial as they were able to create their own forum for setting up in business and also liaise with other women who wanted to set up their own business.

2 women who are some of the success stories from this are:

Pamela Fitzmaurice from Blazing Salads
Jennylynd James from Caribbean Enterprises

As the course is also held on a Saturday it means you can devote time to getting all the information you need form it, and it does cover a LOT. It is also run by a female entrepreneur who can give you hands on information relevant to you.

I hope this helps but would recommend asking around.

All the best.

Yeah, I have to say I am loving it here.

My position as Network Manager was finishing up last December and then mid November an opportunity came up to work for Denis O'Brien's company, Digicel, in the Caribbean.

My job is that of HR Manager and Expat Programme Manager so I am looking after all the foreigners coming in to Jamaica (like myself) to help make their relocation and integration a good experience and also to manage any of the Group's HR needs - like network management but for a corporation rather than small business owners!

I'm currently thinking of joining the Canadian Women's Network Group - there isn't one for Irish women just yet (!) - to be a participant rather that manager for once.

So, I'm hoping that over time I can access the knowledge and skills of the many wonderful business women I had the pleasure of dealing with in Ireland and link them with Jamaica in some way! A long way off but one has to dream.

Best of luck with the Women Entering Business Course, it will be a great stepping stone for you and sure there are so many women who's knowledge and advice you can source through this great website too!

Best of luck.

Jennifer
