Tánaiste Frances Fitzgerald today called on existing small business owners, and people thinking of starting a new one, to register their interest for the ‘Taking Care of Business’ event on Wednesday November 8th at the Printworks Conference Centre in Dublin Castle.

The half-day event is specifically targeted at people thinking of starting a business as well as small business owners and managers. In the context of Brexit, it is also an opportunity for businesses to seek advice from a range of experts on how to diversify and expand into new markets.

Tánaiste Frances Fitzgerald said:

This event provides a fantastic opportunity for small business owners, entrepreneurs and those who want to start up businesses to get advice from a wide variety of agencies, on topics as diverse as health and safety and access to finance, for instance. We all want, and need, small businesses to succeed and this event is part of our efforts to explain, simply and clearly, government regulation, and how best to deal with it.
