One day to go! – Your Business Day 2012


Best business advice in Dublin!


This major event for business owners and start-ups in Dublin city has been called the “mini-summit” for business advice and information.

All are welcome to call in, meet a business mentor, find answers to your questions at the partners’ exhibition and listen to the shared experience of business owners and clients of Dublin City Enterprise Board.

YBD 3 has come quickly. This year we are the last major event in the Innovation Dublin calendar – it finishes on the 26th of October.

Says Billy Linehan “For me, being “compere” for the theatre programme is an ideal position to be in. To observe an array of business owners up close as they present on their companies. It is great that several of this year’s presenters were in the audience last year – listening to the experiences of last year’s panel. Celtar are excited at project managing this event for the third year.”
