Enterprise Week 2022 to focus on boosting adaptability and recovery

10 November 2021
Plans for next year's Enterprise Week programme have been rubber stamped today by Council's Business and Culture Committee.
Details of the programme, which will take place from March 7-11, 2022, were presented at the monthly meeting in the Guildhall, featuring a blended series of online and in person events.
The popular business support event, which is delivered by Council in conjunction with a wide range of partners, will this year strongly focus on opportunities for post-pandemic innovation and economic growth.
Council's Head of Business, Kevin O'Connor, told Members that Enterprise Week would provide a valuable forum for local businesses to share expertise and experiences after two years of significant challenge and upheaval. He warned that the changing economic landscape meant that flexibility and willingness to adapt have become key to business success, and said that EW2022 would help local companies reimagine business models to make them more resilient for the future.
Business and Culture Committee Chair, Councillor Conor Heaney, said the EW2022 programme addressed a range of issues with an array of practical and targeted support. "Enterprise Week has become a real highlight in the local business calendar and provides a great opportunity for networking and information sharing. 2022 will be another challenging year for local businesses as they slowly recover from the impacts of lockdown, and focus on enhancing resilience for the future. "We are very lucky to have a strong network of partners who offer a wealth of support across a range of industries, and Enterprise Week offers a fantastic platform for local businesses to connect with these partners. Whether you're a fledgling start up business taking those first cautious steps, or an established enterprise in need of some inspiration, support is there. Please check out the programme and the events that could transform your business future."
This year's EW2022 programme features a series of business focused workshops, webinars, keynote addresses, panel discussions, start-up pitches and networking opportunities. Committee Members approved the £15,000 required to deliver the programme, which includes events focusing on Digital Innovation, Funding, Start Up support, Leadership and Empowerment, and Skills, full details to be confirmed in the New Year.
Partners involved in this year's programme include Invest Northern Ireland, InterTradeIreland, Labour Relations Agency, Londonderry Chamber of Commerce, Catalyst, Enterprise NW, Strabane Enterprise Agency, Young Enterprise, North West Regional College, Ulster University and Women in Enterprise.
