Well Christmas is done and dusted for another 12 mths , I hope you all had a great time.

January is a great month for new resolutions and I find I am full of excitement for the year ahead.

Maybe now is the time to schedule some networking activities into your diary ?.

Mallow Open Coffee is by now well estabhlised and we are always looking for ways to improve the opportunities that we can offer each other , whether it be support in the form of a sounding platform for you to come and discuss issues and concerns that you as an individual business owner may be finding . As they say a problem or concern shared is a problem halved .

Why don’t you come along and find out what we are all about ?. The group has a great variety of businesses and we find that lots of different topics are discussed each month.

We hope to see you at our next meet-up tomorrow the 10th of  January from 10 am in Springfort Hall , Mallow and if you need anymore information please feel free to contact : Grainne on 086 2119326 .

See you there and a very Happy and sucessful New Year to you all.

Next Open Coffee – Tue SEPTEMBER 6th 2011, 10am – 12pm
Springfort Hall, Newtwopothouse, Co. Cork

Hi everyone , I hope that  the Summer has been good to you both personally and business wise , pity about the weather but when you look at what the USA are facing at the moment we really can’t complain about a few showers now can we lols .

Julys Open Coffee was well attended again and I hope to continue this into the Autumn and Winter months .

I want to ask you the members of Mallow Open Coffee if it would interest you to have a once off  Meet – up in the evening and what you would like if I was to arrange this , I am thinking maybe a meet up followed by drinks and time to socialise with each other . What do u think please reply and let me know of any ideas you may have.

I would also like to wish Elaine the best of luck in the future and hope that she will continue to be a very valuable member of Mallow Open Coffee , Elaine has decided to step down as an organiser. I wish her all the best and thank her on your behalf for her time and commitment to Mallow Open Coffee in the last two years . If anyone would like to step up and help me to continue grow Mallow Open Coffee and its network then feel free to contact me on 086 2119326.

I look forward to seeing you all on the 6th of September. If again you require any details then please go to the blog where you will find further information. https://opencoffeemallow.wordpress.com/

Huge thanks to

for donating so far. I have been duly informed by Brídhaven that there are more on the way  }} 🙂

Excitement is building for next months Open Coffee Mallow meet-up which is being held on Tuesday the 5th of July from 10 am at , Bridhaven Nursing Home. Paul and Mary Clare Rochford ,  have kindly invited  our group to visit their facilities (Enter Code QK1-07-62D here) and meet with their residents some of whom are previous business owners within the town of Mallow and surrounds. We are looking forward to hearing their stories of how it has been for them as a business owner , and we believe they will have invaluable business advice and stories to share.

Last months Open Coffee meeting (some photos here) was well supported. We also welcomed new visitors, Judith Power of Style Coach and Mairead O Sullivan of Fermoy Print and Design. Lots of positive vibes coming from the group and lots of ideas of how to be innovative about business in recessionary times .

I wondered how everyone would feel about an evening meet-up so I broached the subject of having a more casual gathering later in the Summer , I am thinking maybe late August or early September and going with a barbeque for members to mingle over some nibbles and a glass of vino or two ;-)) , this will also allow for some members whom have not been able to attend due to work restrictions or other reasons , I will contact you all again in regards to this.
Looking forward to seeing you all in Bridhaven next Tuesday.
Gráinne
P.S. If you require further information please feel free to contact either myself or Elaine and we would be more than happy to help you.

Happy New Year 2011

Ready for the New Year???

2011 is going to be challenging for every household in Ireland, and every person will have to pull out all stops to survive a difficult year. Businesses are no different, so my focus for 2011 is going to be:

  • SUPPORT
  • EDUCATION
  • EMPOWERMENT
  • FOCUS ON POSITIVITY
  • INFORMATION

So if you would like to share your acronym for 2011, please leave a comment below or bring it with you on Jan 11th.

Love, light and laughter for Christmas & New Year!!

Elaine

Happy New Year 2011
