I absolutely loved my experience on Going for Growth and would recommend it to others without any hesitation. Our team of ladies under the fabulous leadership of Aine Denn have got on brilliantly together and have shared experiences, advice and laughs together. The programme is a great way for business owners to meet other like minded women, to be accepted as part of a group and hear others experiences that can help you in your own business. It's all about Going for Growth and that is what we signed up for - Onwards and upwards!

Grainne Walsh Metalman Brewing Co.

Going for Growth was one of the most fascinating and interesting business programmes I have ever been involved in. It's not easy to take a day out of your business once a month for six months, and I probably had some concerns starting off (which were based on prior experiences), that the reward for that "lost day" would not always be sufficient to really justify it. However, looking back at the programme now, I would never consider any of the sessions to constitute a "lost day" - the circle of peers I was lucky enough to be involved with, helped me to look into my business from the outside and see opportunities for change that I might not otherwise have seen. I would recommend this programme to any business women looking to bring innovation and growth into their business.

Vicky McDwyer Esker Lodge Nursing Home

Going for Growth has had a really positive impact on our business. Everyone involved is passionate about what they are doing and determined to continually improve and expand their businesses. The peer network is very collaborative and encourages you to move in directions you might not have considered otherwise. Because you have monthly meetings, you commit to actions that you must deliver by the next session. And you want to demonstrate that you are moving forward and delivering results. Louise Phelan of PayPal has given very generously of her time as do the other voluntary Lead Entrepreneurs. Louise is extremely supportive and encouraging but she still kept the group focused so that we always got through the agenda. The Leads insights and experience is a huge inspiration and benefit all the participants. I would strongly encourage women who are passionate and ambitious about their businesses to apply.
