By Heather McGarrigle

Northern Ireland businesses are being offered training and masterclasses to improve performance and build contacts.

The Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce has launched the three-part 'Business Pillar Series' to offer firms masterclass training and advice in areas such as people, finance and sales and marketing.

The series was launched at the Ramada Shaw's Bridge on Friday with a sales and marketing masterclass by Spirit Marketing Group.

The next masterclass on October 13 will be delivered by A-amp;L Goodbody and will focus on people, while the series will be completed on November 1 with a session delivered by Grant Thornton about managing wealth in family business.

Louise Turley, events manager at the Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce, said: "From sole traders and SMEs through to multi-national corporations, all successful business operations can benefit from engaging with other firms and growing a network of contacts in order to improve efficiency and enhance growth.

"We have identified people, finance and sales and marketing as key business functions required to support a successful company and these are the areas which the three masterclasses will focus on during the Business Pillar Series.

"Specialists in each field will deliver expert advice and training which firms can develop and adapt in order to maximise their resources and get the most out of their own business models."
