The aim of the conference was to promote and encourage entrepreneurship in Wexford and the South East.
This event was specifically aimed at owners of young businesses who would not normally attend business conferences, and this event had a different look and feel to a standard conference event. The overall theme is one of optimism through challenging times, and the delegates are encouraged to take an active part in the event. The Instant Opinion system allows delegates to submit their questions by text, and a key part of each session is the Q&A, where the three speakers respond to the questions in a group discussion format.
