:: Flexible workspaces and serviced offices provider Glandore will Zoom in on future-focused learnings from some of Ireland’s trail-blazing entrepreneurs and business people this Thursday as part of their Glandore Network virtual events for business owners.

The free virtual event ‘From Business Woes to Business Wins’ brings together successful Irish entrepreneurs Jamie Heaslip, Allan Beechinor and Yolanda Cooper to tell about their journeys from small beginnings to extraordinary success.

Each has had their ups and downs, and with the impact of coronavirus causing ongoing instability for the business community across Ireland, they will share some valuable lessons from their own experiences of overcoming challenges through resilience and innovation.

“We hope our speakers’ stories will resonate with and inspire many of our member businesses and help them as they face challenges head on in these worrying times,” said Rebecca Kelly, Director at Glandore.

Rugby legend Heaslip is head of brand for Flender, a business and community focused firm enjoying considerable success in bringing investors and businesses together; Belfast-based Yolanda Cooper is founder of We Are Paradoxx, a now worldwide beauty brand with environmental and social responsibility at its core; and Allan Beechinor, chief executive and founder of Altada Technology Solutions has 20 years of experience in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data science and is a well-established AI thought industry leader in EU.
