Friday Breakfast Club comes to The Kingdom of Kerry

On Friday 6 September the first of a series of Friday Breakfast Club events will kick off with IT Tralee’s Breda O’Dwyer chatting with eBay Ireland’s Colin McCallion.

Friday Breakfast Clubs are events held every first Friday in Bank of Ireland’s Workbenches across the country. The first 30 minutes involves business networking over a light breakfast. This is followed by a ‘Fireside Chat’ with a local customer/ business owner/business organisation with a financial focus on the story of their journey to date, in a relaxed conversational setting, closing with Q&A from the audience.

For the Tralee Friday Breakfast Club chapter Kerry enterprise manager Pat Carmody has invited Breda O’Dwyer to host the first of the monthly Fireside Chats.

“Kerry is a region that has and continues to push out the boundaries. This is a region that understands through experience that collaboration breeds new ideas, scale and sustainability”

“We are delighted to announce that for our first guest Breda will be chatting with Colin McCallion Commercial Operations Manager, eBay Ireland,” explained Pat Carroll, Enterprise & Community manager for Bank of Ireland Munster.

“Colin will share how eBay is working with Tralee retailers to help these ‘bricks & mortar’ businesses to trade online.”

South west by south west

Breda O’Dwyer heads up the Centre of Entrepreneurship & Enterprise Development (CEED) at the IT Tralee. which plays a key role in developing the enterprise ecosystem in the south west and supports start-ups and existing social and commercial organisations in the Kerry region.

“Kerry is a region that has and continues to push out the boundaries,” O’Dwyer explained. “This is a region that understands through experience that collaboration breeds new ideas, scale and sustainability.

“This collaboration at a strategic level incorporates three key partners – higher education institutes, Kerry County Council and private industry – big and small. They work together to position the region for continued growth and economic prosperity with optimum social impact.”

“Join us in our Castle Street Branch Workbench on the first Friday of every month to listen and share your voice as we strive to make Kerry the number one region in Ireland to do business,” added Pat Carmody, Bank of Ireland’s County Enterprise manager for Kerry.
