Women's Network a Certified Success

Oct 13, 2004

The c

ertificates were presented to 54 women at a special networking dinner, which took place in Galgorm Manor Hotel in Ballymena.

The Women's Development Programme, run by Invest Northern Ireland through its north east local office in Ballymena, has helped some 120 businesswomen in the area to develop business skills in essential areas such as marketing, finance, staff management and personal development.

As a result of the programme, which ran over three years, the participants have set up a ‘network for enterprising women’ to allow them to continue to support and mentor each other. The network is to be officially launched in January 2004.

The programme’s grand finale event at Galgorm Manor included an inspirational presentation by local businesswoman Gloria Gilfillan, who runs a personal development training consultancy.

The North East Women’s Development Programme was delivered by Enterprise Northern Ireland – North East, the consortium of enterprise agencies covering Antrim, Ballymena, Ballymoney, Carrickfergus, Larne and Moyle, with Ballymena Business Centre in the lead.
