‘It brings to­gether such a di­verse range of busi­nesses...’

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - BUSINESS AWARDS 2018 -

THE Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of the HR Suite, Caro­line McEn­ery, is once again look­ing for­ward to pre­sent­ing The Ker­ry­man Busi­ness Awards for 2018. This is Caro­line’s sec­ond year as em­cee and she is look­ing for­ward to host­ing an event that she feels brings Kerry’s di­verse busi­ness com­mu­nity to­gether for an en­ter­tain­ing evening. Caro­line does an ex­cel­lent job pre­sent­ing the awards and her en­tre­pre­neur­ial skill and ex­pe­ri­ence en­sures that she is well placed to un­der­stand many of the chal­lenges faced by Kerry’s busi­ness com­mu­nity.

“One of the things I like about The Ker­ry­man Busi­ness Awards is that it’s an op­por­tu­nity to sup­port our own lo­cal busi­ness com­mu­nity. We’re bril­liant as a county at sup­port­ing other busi­nesses, and we ap­pre­ci­ate the chal­lenges each other face. At the end of the day it doesn’t mat­ter what busi­ness type you have as ev­ery busi­ness has the same com­mon chal­lenges,” she said.

Caro­line added that the awards night is build­ing on its suc­cess ev­ery year with reg­u­lar at­ten­dances now a fea­ture. Each year Caro­line is amazed at the cal­i­bre of busi­nesses on show, which is ev­i­dent in the hard work, in­ge­nu­ity and in­no­va­tion of busi­ness per­son­nel and their staff through­out Kerry.

“I’m as­tounded by the num­ber of busi­nesses that we don’t know of. This is an­other strength as­so­ci­ated with The Ker­ry­man Busi­ness Awards in that it pro­vides a bril­liant op­por­tu­nity to show­case busi­nesses.

It’s also an ex­cel­lent oc­ca­sion for peo­ple to net­work and in­ter­act. It’s not often that busi­ness peo­ple find time to re­lax in a so­cial set­ting and get to share their ex­pe­ri­ences with fel­low busi­ness peo­ple. I’m look­ing for­ward to the event and meet­ing with Kerry’s busi­ness com­mu­nity,” Caro­line added.
