How The On-line Era Is Changing Your Business
By Beatrice Whelan, Social Media & Content Specialist at Sage Ireland
Fingal County Enterprise Board is hosting the Fingal Enterprise Week 2012 from Monday 1st October to Friday 5th October. Starting in 2007, it was originally a one day event of seminars and workshops. In response to demand for a greater number and variety of topics, in 2010 the Enterprise Board changed it from a one day event to a week-long series of Enterprise events. This year’s schedule includes 15 events that will take place locations throughout the county, including Balbriggan, Blanchardstown/Dublin 15, Howth, Malahide, Sutton and Swords.
QED are hosting a morning session on Monday 1st October called Working in a Digital Age in the Carlton Hotel, Dublin Airport. The aim of this round table workshop is to energise and invigorate SME businesses about the tools and opportunities in the online area. This is a half day event that will highlight to participants the way in which we do business has changed. The way in which consumers work, think, communicate, socialise and do business in the digital space has changed the way in which SME’s can do business.
The session will be run in the format of a round table with representatives from Apple, Realex, LinkedIn, Facebook and Sage available to answer questions to those attending. I will be taking part in the round table discussion and look forward to discussing the challenges of the digital era with those attending and the other people on the panel.
