Deirdre Collins of Dee’s Wholefoods is going to share her story at an event dedicated to women in business in Cork this month.
SECAD is hosting the Catalyst Women in Business Project seminar on 21 November in the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Little Island.
Collins, who appeared on Dragons Den on RTE last year, will talk about building her business of vegetarian ready meals from farmers’ markets to a now national brand available in all major retailers in Ireland and UK.
Deirdre O’Shaughnessy, editor of Cork Independent and regular Newstalk radio and TV contributor will talk about making connections and building relationships for your profile and business across all sectors.
Over the past two years SECAD has co-ordinated numerous networking events, organised mentoring and organised training courses specifically for women in business to support business women and aspiring female entrepreneurs.
One of the key objectives of the Catalyst project is to provide opportunities for women in business to make connections which will help them to grow and develop their businesses.
