Roisin was the former Manager at EBE and was responsible for the development and build of the City East Business Centre. She has worked with us over the years in our delivery of female enterprise support. More recently she undertook an EU research project for us, looking at the challenges facing female migrants. It was a significant piece of work, and she did a great job.

Voluntary Director of Social Enterprise

Roisin supported Specialisterne NI at the start up stage, helping with the original business plan, board recruitment and business set up. We were delighted when Roisin accepted our invitation to join the board, and later to become Treasurer. Roisin’s enthusiasm and positivity have helped direct and spur our team on to grow and thrive, even under difficult market conditions at times. Roisin’s advice and expertise are only surpassed by Roisin’s commitment to all the team and Roisin’s understanding of what it is like to be a woman in business. This means that whether your social enterprise is going well or there is a moment of challenge, Roisin has your back.

Business Start up

I joined the Women in Business Power of 4 programme and Roisin was the Coordinator, trainer and mentor. When setting up my new recruitment agency, she gave me great practical advice and gave me that gentle push where I lacked confidence. I even won the Women in Business “Yes You Can” pitching contest in 2020,  and was grateful for her support to go for it.

Business Growth

We were going through significant continual growth and really benefited from having someone independent to brainstorm our strategy, vision and direction. Roisin made us have those important conversations and she produced a Strategy for us to further develop with our team.

Social Enterprise

Roisin has produced business plans, financial projections and funding proposals for us. While I know what I want to say, she has the knack of getting it down on paper, and incorporating all the statistics, research, diagrams and financials that make it a professional document and help you get a proposal over the line

How many of us are sometimes faking it?

Imposter Syndrome is a classic condition of any new entrepreneur! Did you know that women are more likely to apply for a job when they meet 100% of the job criteria? Whereas men will more often apply when they meet 60% of the criteria. We all sometimes lack confidence...

Does the name of a business impact its success?

Does the name of a business impact its success?

It's not easy naming a business. Recently I've been trying to help some clients come up with the right business name. I remember struggling with this myself and going for Seed Mentoring as I focus on helping develop ideas (plant a seed) and could create the acroynm...

Have you got your Pitch right?

Have you got your pitch right? It's really tricky to say all you want to say and should say in 2 minutes. I helped a few clients recently with this and loved working on their wording, getting their hook or opening lines finetuned, bringing in a bit of drama or emotion...
