Balbriggan Chamber host successful business breakfast
BALBRIGGAN Chamber of Commerce held a business networking breakfast for all local businesses in Balbriggan Golf Club recently.
The Chamber President, John Cumiskey gave an update on the chamber’s current activities and welcomed two speakers.
Nora Roban of Remember Us, a social club for young people with special needs and their families gave the first keynote speech of the breakfast and kept the local business community up to date with the charity’s fundraising drive to fit out their new home in Balbriggan.
She thanked the local business community for all of their support in their fundraising efforts and appealed for that support to continue as the charity nears its fundraising goal and the dream of establishing a permanent home in the town for this beloved local special needs club.
Rita Crowley of Alter Pharma was the other featured speaker at the event.
Alter Pharma is a Belgian multinational pharmaceutical company which specialises in the development, marketing, sales and supply of pharmaceuticals for niche products that would be difficult to manufacture.
The company chose Balbriggan as the headquarters of its worldwide operations after a lengthy location search.
The company are hiring new staff on an ongoing basis.
Currently they employ over 80 staff, many from the local area. It was a fascinating and worthwhile event for everyone who attended and Balbriggan Chamber is to be congratulated for putting the event together.
