Invitation: Launch of PLATO Growth Programme in Fermanagh and Omagh
Ambitious companies in the Region in all industry sectors are being offered a unique opportunity to invest in their management and leadership skills through a customised cross-border programme underpinned by peer-to-peer learning and “learning from the Bigger Guys”. The programme offers owner managers a business support forum where they can network and discuss business growth challenges with established large ‘parent’ companies in the region. These ‘parent’ companies are leaders in their industry sectors, and support the programme by sharing their skills and experience within the network on an ongoing basis over a 12-month period.
The PLATO Programme is launching in the Fermanagh and Omagh region and can take a small number of companies from neighbouring counties/Council jurisdictions across the Region North and South. The two parent company leaders in Fermanagh and Omagh will include Balcas CEO, Brian Murphy and Telestack Marketing Manager Mairead McCrory.
The Fermanagh and Omagh PLATO EBR Programme is now open for applications to fill a maximum of 20 places for small growth-oriented companies to join the Programme. Places on the Programme are limited, if you think you may be interested but not sure how, please join us on Tuesday 27th November from 10:00-12:00 at Telestack, Omagh for an opportunity to hear more about the Programme, hear about Telestack growth story and to network with like-minded individuals. Alternatively, you can email Cecilia on firstname.lastname@example.org to apply.
PLATO is a programme for entrepreneurs, driven by entrepreneurs. The Fermanagh and Omagh PLATO group will provide a sound and confidential forum for owner/managers to challenge their thinking and develop their business potential through facilitated sharing of experiences and resources where the Programme is customised to suit the needs of the group at the outset of the Programme.
