We’re getting really excited about the Northwest Connects event… in TWO WEEKS!
28 November 2009; 9.30-5pm at the Innovation Centre at IT Sligo
The event is free attend, but registration is required. Register: http://nwc09.eventbrite.com/
What is Northwest Connects?
A day long conference with talks, presentations, discussion and workshops to share expertise about starting up and running a business. Hopefully lots of business to business opportunities will arise from the event.
A collaborative effort
This event is being organised by Open Coffee Sligo members. Many people have made a contribution to planning and coordinating this event.
Denise Rushe & Aoife Porter are taking care of marketing and PR, getting this event into the papers, and getting the word out. Denise even started a NW Connects LinkedIn group & event listing, a facebook group: Northwest Connects, and Twitter @nwconnects! She’s been busy!
Eddie Johnston did the website, Justin Knecht designed the logo (Eddie added the cool dots map in the back). I’m (Heather James) working on the layout of print materials & volunteer wrangling. Kevin Peyton has organised the group panel discussion, and he’s going to chair it. Anne Louise O’Donovan, Aidan McKenna and Feargus Callagy are helping coordinate streams, and communicating with speakers. Anne Louise has also stepped in since last week to crack the coordination whip and keep us on our toes as we enter this home stretch.
Thanks to the sponsors
We’re really looking forward to the event. Please tell anyone you think who might be interested.
