Local Enterprise Board networking lunches continue

Louise Grubb of Q1 Scientific

Following the success of WLRfm’s Des Whelan ‘Top Ten Tips on Branding’, Waterford Local Enterprise Office is looking forward to welcoming Louise Grubb to give her ‘Top Ten Tips on Business Expansion’ on Thursday, July 3rd.
These events called ‘Top Ten lunches’ are a series of networking lunches on the theme of ‘My top ten business tips’ delivered by successful local business people and occurring once per month. Each lunch will outline the speakers’ views on a specific topic such as branding, export, retail and selling on line. 
These lunches take place in the Bistro in the Tower Hotel, Waterford from 12.30pm to 2pm. This series is also an appropriate way to introduce the new Local Enterprise Office in Waterford to local business people.
There is a considerable pool of business talent and experience in Waterford and the L.E.O. hopes to harness this expertise to inspire Waterford’s new and existing business people. 
Louise Grubb is the CEO and Founder of Q1 Scientific which was launched in 2013 to provide a world-class Environmentally Controlled storage facility servicing the Pharmaceutical and Life Sciences industries. Prior to Q1 Scientific, Louise was the Founder and Managing Director of Nutri Science Ltd, which develops nutraceuticals for the veterinary healthcare market. Nutri Science was a former winner of the Irish Exporters Award with exports throughout Europe. Louise holds honours BSc in Nutrition, a Master’s Degree in Business Studies (International Marketing) and is a graduate of the Irish Marketing Institute.
Ciarán Cullen of the Local Enterprise Office in Waterford is particularly looking forward to hear Louise, “We worked with Louise a number of years ago when Nutri-science was growing and years later we also helped with the launch of Q1 Scientific. Louise is an excellent speaker and when it comes to start up businesses is always very generous with her time.”
The lunches are taking a break in August but return with Ronan Mulligan’s ’Top Ten Tips on technology in retail’ on September 18th
Future speakers also include John Noonan of Flahavan’s and Grainne Walsh of Metalman Brewing.
