Inspires' Business Enterprise Development Manager, Emma Garrett (pictured here with Inspire Chairman Cllr David Drysdale)
celebrated being named as one of the leading #40under40 young professionals in Northern Ireland.  The prestigious networking event was held in the new Windsor Park Stadium on Wednesday 16th May.

The list which can be accessed here was published by Business First Online on 1st May 2017. Emma has been with Inspire Business Ltd for almost a year.  She heads up Enterprise and Economic Development Department.

Emma is currently working closely with her team to develop new private and social enterprises in order to grow “The Inspire Group of Companies.” Her most recent achievements have included the successful #inspirebreakfast network throughout the later part of 2016, attracting between 50 and 60 businesses to each networking session.  She also recently launched #Castlereaghhour on twitter which trended in its first week.  This is significantly different to other twitter hours as it will work towards achieving Inspires’ Corporate Social Responsibility strategy by aligning itself to four local charity partners throughout its first year.  Another new initiative which Emma has recently developed is Inspire Digital NI which provides a complete wrap-around service to Business Start-ups in NI.  It provides a unique corporate communications package and acts as a one stop shop for all their digital needs. In 2012 Emma established Craft Fairs Northern Ireland on Facebook, which to date has organically attracted over 9,000 followers.  Emma has a passion for the crafts sector in Northern Ireland and endeavours to assist and promote this industry where she can.
