Marita Collier is many things. She’s a farmer, an entrepreneur and a business leader. She’s also a good friend, wife and mother. And now she’s adding a new accolade to these titles. Marita is Louth’s Leading Light for National Women’s Enterprise Day.

Taking place on Thursday, October 13th, at City North Hotel, National Women’s Enterprise Day is open to women in business or thinking of starting a business. Hosted by the Local Enterprise Offices in Louth and Meath, this event is a brilliant opportunity to network and learn.

Founder of Drummond House Garlic in Baltray, Marita has so much experience under her belt and she’s looking forward to sharing it.

“I’ve had access to so much support throughout my business life. But you can never measure the value of being around other entrepreneurs and listening to their story. We learn so much from each other. Over the years, I’ve learned from the successes and mistakes of others. I’ve become braver and more ambitious. It’s helped me to grow Drummond House Garlic into the successful enterprise it is today. And I can’t wait to share my story,” says Marita.
