Welcome to the 2021 Bord Bia Small Business Seminar which focuses on providing you with insight and information to support your business growth, the opportunity to hear from leading industry experts and the chance to meet with your Bord Bia team.
The theme for this year’s seminar is ‘Be Extraordinary’. 2020 brought many challenges to small businesses in the food, drink, and horticulture industry, however, when the challenges were at their greatest in 2020 we saw the small business community often perform at its strongest and ‘be extraordinary’. We have seen wonderful examples of small businesses showcasing their adaptability and innovation to bring their truly distinctive produce to consumers in Ireland and the world. As we enter into 2021 the need to ‘Be Extraordinary’ will continue in these exceptional times as businesses seek to meet changing consumer and market needs.
The seminar will be opened by Minister of State Martin Heydon and includes great speakers including Tara McCarthy, CEO Bord Bia, Laura Harper, Aldi buying Director and Karen O’Neill, BeeKon Batches. The full list of speakers can be on the speaker’s page.
You will have the opportunity to book 1:1 meetings with your Bord Bia sector manager as well as other representatives from the Bord Bia team, which take place immediately after the seminar. More information can be found on 1:1 meetings page.
+ This event is exclusively for Bord Bia Small Business clients (with a turnover of between 100k and 3.5 million)
