This workshop, scheduled over four days in June 2024 – @ IADT, Dun Laoghaire – June 11th, 13th, 25th and 27th, 2024 – will equip participants with critical business skills, build confidence and help them to bring ideas to market.

Fola O’Grady, Lecturer in Finance at IADT said:

“We are thrilled to offer this free foundational course tailored specifically to empower women starting a new chapter in their lives. Our goal is to provide practical skills and knowledge that will enable participants to take their first steps towards business success.”

The workshop will cover a range of topics, including effective communication, financial literacy, money management and modern ways of operating in business. Led by an experienced and enthusiastic facilitator, the sessions are designed to be interactive and engaging.

Participants will gain both theoretical knowledge and practical experience within a warm and supportive space.
