Lisburn Entrepreneurs Network (LEN) is a networking and discussion forum for small businesses based in the City of Lisburn. LEN will offer networking events and practical information sessions aimed at addressing key business issues and promoting local business development.
Each networking opportunity will focus on a specific business topic or issue driven by an expert speaker, and with a local business representative sharing their experiences.
LEN takes place on the last Thursday in each month throughout the year at the Lagan Valley Island Centre, Lisburn. Breakfast and registration is at 8:00am, with a half hour seminar from 8:30am to 9:00am, followed by Q&A and networking until 9:30am.
LEN networking events are free of charge, as it is funded by Lisburn City Council and the European Sustainable Competitiveness Programme 2007-2013.
Please contact Simone Lam on 028 9250 9390 or email@example.com for further information or to register your attendance at LEN events.
At the end of each LEN event we give two local businesses the opportunity to speak for two minutes about their business. If you would like to speak in the Business Spotlight at any upcoming event, please express your interest with Simone Lam. Selection will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
