Dublin Business Breakfast Meeting

From “Service to Experience”.

The Customer Care Challenge…. for Tourism, Hospitality and Retail Sectors.

Historically, 90% of the contact between customers and companies was interpersonal. Today, with the proliferation of channels and the explosion of online and smart phone usage, the vast majority of customer interactions do not take place face to face.

  • How do you ensure the customer gets a consistent experience across so many touch points?
  • How do you ensure your website and your people deliver on the promise of your brand?
  • How can Amazon achieve its mission to become the earths most customer centric company with no face to face contact with customers?

All these issues and more, will be addressed by John Aves in his presentation.

If you are responsible for sales, customer service or digital marketing, you will benefit from John’s presentation.

Tuesday, 10th March 8.00-10.00am

Small Food Business Start-Up Seminar

All food businesses, big or small,whether operating from a business premises, in the home or from a mobile unit or food stall, must be aware of the legislation regarding food hygiene and food safety. Ultimately, you are responsible for ensuring the food you produce is safe.

In order to share information and advice with small food business operators and those of you considering setting up a small food business, we have decided to combine all the relevant topics and more, into a morning event which covers all you need to know about setting up a food business. The Small Food Business Start-up Seminar will be a one-stop shop for anyone who is thinking about starting a small food business and/or who has recently gone into business in the food sector.

At this free, half day event, various experts from the FSAI will outline: the various information resources available from the FSAI, your food safety training requirements, how to set up your food safety management system, labelling regulations and what you need to do in the case of a product recall. A representative from the Environmental Health Service will detail how to register your food business and what to expect from an inspection. A new product development expert from Teagasc will outline what is involved in developing a new food product and a small food business owner will outline their recent experience in setting up a food business.

There will be a number of Q&A sessions throughout the morning if you want to put a question to the experts. The experts will also be available after the event closes for further discussion.

Also, the Health and Safety Authority (HSA), the Health Service Executive (HSE), Teagasc (Agriculture and Food Development Authority) and Microfinace Ireland (MFI) will have information stands at the event to provide you with information and advice on the health and safety, food safety inspection, product development and finance aspects of your food business.
