As part of its Finance for Growth Workshop series, Enterprise Ireland will host free half day workshops in two locations (Shannon and Dublin) on Wednesday May 18th and Thursday May 19th. Target participants are, ideally, the Finance Director/CFO of established SMEs, or where there is no internal finance function, then the CEO. HPSUs, which have been generating sales revenue for at least one year, are also welcome.

The event in Shannon will take place at Westpark, Shannon, while the Dublin event takes place in Eastpoint Business Park, Clontarf. Registration on both days starts at 8am, the workshops will commence at 8.30am, and the event will conclude at 12.45pm.

Other speakers will include (at Shannon) Colm Leen, from Carbery Ltd, who will share his experience on Product Innovation from a financial perspective, and (at Dublin) Damien  Flanagan, Manager at KPMG, who will discuss R&D Tax Credits and the implications for cashflow. EI speaker at both events will be Rowena Elliott, who will highlight various EI supports available to support innovation in client companies.
