Non-profit organisation Ireland Together has launched its free online supports for Irish businesses struggling with the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak.
The group aims to help businesses navigate the unprecedented pandemic and make changes to how they trade to ensure the country can return to prosperity following the emergency.
Ireland Together provides access to experts across a range of sectors, including recruitment, digital transformation, finance & accounts, sales & marketing, executive coaching and PR & communications.
Once registered, members will have access to discussion forums, Ireland Together’s knowledge bank, and free business mentoring hours to use with an adviser of their choice from the advisor panel.
Joanne Griffin, Colin Harris, Louise O’Conor and Paddy Ryan alongside an advisory panel of Jeff and Mindi Caselden, Les Dunne, Fiona Conway, Collette Doyle, and Saleena Shaw founded the group while working from home — without ever meeting in person.
‘I’m confident that the business community of Ireland can offer great support to each other and co-create a brighter future together,’ AdaptIQ founder and CEO Ms Griffin said.
‘Using the latest technologies we aim to provide a platform which makes helping and being helped simple and easy for companies of all sizes,’ VIP Recruitment managing director Colin Harris added.
‘Having a platform to bring people together, share resources, knowledge, and support will enable our business community to survive, even thrive, through this crisis,’ Caselden Consulting managing director Ms Caselden said.
‘The resulting diversity of ideas can generate even better outcomes, products, and services for people across the island. It is the resilience and strength the Irish are famous for that will build a better future for all.’
