IT is rumoured that before Steve Collins fought Chris Eubank in Millstreet all those years ago that he used a range of motivational and positive mindset techniques. If so he would have loved a return to the same venue last Wednesday.
The Green Glens Arena has an enviable reputation for hosting world class international events, and added the acclaimed 'Create Your Own Reality' seminar to that list last week, organised and hosted by the North Cork Enterprise Board and delivered by Pearce Flannery.
Addressing a packed house, trainer and motivational speaker Pearce Flannery delivered a high impact seminar empowering participants to set and achieve their goals, plan effectively and manage stress in their lives.
Based in Galway, Flannery is the founder of the Pragmatica organisation, which delivers corporate training and development seminars. The author of 'Grabbing The Oyster', he is a former winner of the JCI Galway Entrepreneur of the Year and is also winner of the Marketing Institutes prestigious 'Marketing Person of the Year' award. Pearce was named as one of Ireland's top 100 entrepreneurs by the Irish Times and Irish Entrepreneur Magazine.
Following the Green Glens event, Tadhg Curtis, chairman of the North Cork Enterprise Board, said in today's business climate networking with potential clients had never been more important. "There is a realisation among most sensible business people that they look beyond traditional ways of doing business and the type of promotional activities that they previously engaged in," said Mr Curtis.
Joan Kelleher from the enterprise board was delighted to see so many local business people take part in the event at Green Glens. "We have been delighted with the enthusiastic response that this networking initiative has received, which demonstrates that smaller companies are willing to look at every opportunity that presents itself," she added.
Pearce promised to provide participants with the very best tools and techniques taught through the application of his high impact and innovative approach to personal development and goal achievement. And he certainly delivered in his promise.
The event received an overwhelming thumbs up from all in attendance as they left with an invigorated pep in their step.
"Pearce Flannery has coloured my thinking with more kaizan [Japanese philosphy of 'continuous improvement'] and enthusiasm to move forward with my goals for 2014," said author Patricia O'Sullivan Riordan, who attended the event.
Joanne Dennehy of Choices Café Mallow, said the seminar was full of energy and enthusiasm - "a morning that motivated us all".
"I have identified certain priorities that are going to help to grow my business and crucial to my success. I am looking forward to the challenge and I'll be there to meet it into the future," said Joanne.
"Going out the door I feel invigorated both personally and in terms of my business after the event.
"Pearce Flannery delivered clear advice and his business observations with such conviction and good nature it was hard not to be energised and inspired," she added.
