Social media expert Johnny Beirne will be the guest speaker at the next meeting of the Mayo Open Coffee Club (MOCC ), a business network run by businesspeople for businesspeople.
The meeting will take place on Wednesday, December 2, at 11am, in the new setting of GMIT’s Castlebar campus. The move to the GMIT has taken place due to the large numbers attending recent meetings, with the last two get-togethers both attracting in excess of 40 people.
Beirne, who is the innovation officer for Leitrim County Enterprise Board, is a specialist in social media, professional networking, and internet marketing.
His talk will be on ‘Social media as a key marketing tool for your business’, and will be followed by a question-and-answer session and an opportunity for business networking.
The event is completely free of charge, thanks to sponsorship from O’Brien’s Sandwich Bar in Castlebar, and the aim is to let businesspeople make contacts, pitch their business, and get assistance on business issues and challenges.
All meetings start at 11am and last between one hour and 90 minutes.
All you have to do is turn up on the day.
