Bank of Ireland UK in Newry today hosted a business breakfast as part of Enterprise Week, the bank’s own bi-annual initiative that supports business growth through networking events, seminars, business clinics and Show Your Business events in bank branches across Northern Ireland.

Under the theme ‘Let’s Connect Globally’ the event was held to provide advice and guidance to local businesses with ambitions to expand into new markets and trade globally. Among the guest speakers was Frank O’Connor, Financial Controller, First Derivatives who provided an insight into how the financial software company has grown from a local business start-up to a global player in recent years.
