Cashbook Software was delighted to have attended MeetWest at the McWilliam Park Hotel in Claremorris, Co. Mayo in November last. MeetWest is the Annual Business Networking event for businesses that look to connect with other businesses in the West of Ireland. As a company with offices in Limerick and the U.S., Cashbook Software is delighted to have supported this event. All credit goes to the superb staff of Galway, Mayo and Roscommon County/City Councils along with Enterprise Ireland, the IDA & the wonderful attendees, guest speakers, contributors who hustled with ideas and offerings in the magnificent backdrop of the McWilliam Hotel. It really was the perfect mix to a marvellous two days.
Certainly, one can’t help but be impressed by the very astute and bold humour of David McWilliams who was the guest speaker after dinner. David set the tone for the general economic fortunes that typically lie ahead as well as offering many of his unique insights and observations into Brexit, post-election effects of Trump and a summary of his thoughts on the cumulative wrangling of Europe, U.S. & Ireland for the years to come. There were many humorous references to his personal experiences growing up in Dublin as well as life as a Banking Economist working in London. At times, one could have been watching a comedian plying his trade in one of the many theatres of Leicester Square or listening to the meanderings of one of the world’s top Economists at an Economic Forum.
A notable concept of the event was that of “What Can I do for you?”. This concept or approach was encouraged amongst the delegates from the outset and was very evident in the speed dating for business that took place on the second day of the event. MeetWest is a real-time example of how well this works and can provide a much-needed catalyst for every business, particularly at this time of year.
Robert Moloney, Commercial Manager at Cashbook commented ‘this really has grown into a must attend event irrespective of your size of business or what you do. The range of industry sectors meant every attendee had someone of interest to meet.’’
