“Given the upsurge in the economy, it is vital that Irish businesses now collaborate with each other, to aim for growth,” said Elaine Carroll, Limerick-based businesswoman and Programme Director of All-Ireland Business Summit.

“This is our main aim in running the summit – to provide businesses with a platform to grow and make connections that matter. We are inviting all participants to use our hashtag, #pitch4progress and that is what we want them to do – to use this event as a springboard,” said Ms Carroll, who hails originally from Emly.

High profile speakers such as Lucinda Creighton, Renua Ireland founder and TD, economist Constantin Gurdgiev , founder of hugely successful Carambola Kidz Colm O’Brien, Dublin football manager Jim Gavin and Chinese embassy’s Economic and Commercial Counsellor, Shujing Zhang will speak on a wide range of business topics during the day including SME funding, Internationalisation  and Growing your Business.
