Commenting in advance of the workshop, Brid O’Connell, CEO of Guaranteed Irish, said: “At Guaranteed Irish, we’re acutely aware of the challenges our member companies face. Every company, no matter what size it is, will face employment law, HR and health and safety issues at some stage over its lifetime, and how they handle these issues will determine their success as a business. Our workshop will equip businesses with the tools they need to safeguard against these issues, and it’s not just for Guaranteed Irish members – all businesses are welcome to attend, they simply need to register in advance.” 

Moira Grassick, Head of Commercial at Peninsula, added “The time and effort needed to ensure that your business complies and follows the most recent rules and regulations can be huge. The free workshop will show business owners how to comply with employment law legislation whilst allowing them to what they do best – run their businesses.”

Ms. O’Connell continued: “New for September’s Masterclass, we’re delighted to announce our exciting initiative – ‘GI’s Perfect Pitch’! We’re offering two companies the chance to present their business pitch to a room full of Ireland’s leading brands.
