Entrepreneur Niall Harbison Helps Tipperary Businesses Get Sh*t Done

Niall-Harbison CloughjordanThe Cloughjordan area of Tipperary is home to a number of innovative start-up businesses that are slowly building a profile. Niall Harbison — chef, social media entrepreneur, author and innovator — will visit Cloughjordan in October to discover what’s happening in this hidden gem of Ireland. His visit will culminate in an open forum and networking event at WeCreate Workspace in Cloughjordan on Monday, 20 October at 8pm.

Entrepreneur Niall Harbison believes in taking chances that will help you get to your goals. Working under Michelin-starred chef Conrad Gallagher, Niall Harbison became the youngest head chef in Ireland at the age of 20. He then worked on some of the largest private yachts in the world. After creating cookery videos for YouTube, which received 50,000 hits in their first month, he left the world of the super rich to start iFoods, which was meant to be the YouTube for food. Despite pitching on Dragons’ Den, iFoods failed because it lacked a revenue model. However, Niall picked himself up and founded Simply Zesty, a social media agency that worked with brands such as Sony before Harbison and his partners sold it to UTV in a multi-million euro deal. He next launched Lovin’ Dublin, a food and cookery blog that incorporates a novel delivery service of lunch boxes from top restaurants. Lovin’ Dublin has been a huge success, and Niall has followed it with PicStash, a media agency that provides journalists with high-resolution images from global companies. His latest venture has been the number-1 book Get Sh*t Done, which shares his experience, lessons, and advice in an upbeat, no-nonsense fashion.

Get-Shit-Done-Niall HarbisonDuring his visit to Cloughjordan, Niall will meet with recent start ups to discuss the challenges their businesses face. On the evening of 20 October at 8pm in WeCreate Workspace in Cloughjordan, Niall will give feedback, advice and tips in an open forum. This is a great opportunity to meet one of the leading entrepreneurs in Ireland, network with innovative business people, farmers, and artists and discover what’s on offer in Cloughjordan.
Tickets for the evening event are €20, but entry is free with a copy of Niall’s book Get Sh*t Done, which retails at €11.99. Books will be on sale at the door, or you can support your local bookshop by purchasing from them and bringing your copy with you.
