Pam's people: Fry's the limit as SMEs get into recovery mode
THE lure of a good breakfast and good news on the business front was enough to entice the guests to brave the elements to attend an event organised by entrepreneur Gary Carlisle in his restaurant 26West in the Kennedy Centre in West Belfast.
The Deputy First Minister battled through the storm to address local MLAs and business people on the topic 'Showcasing the Recovery' and praised the contribution being made by our small and medium businesses to the economy.
And the breakfast theme continued when PANI, the Publicity Association of NI, kicked off its calendar of events for the year with a seminar in the Holiday Inn entitled 'Radio: Live and Kicking'. Michael Tull, Insight Manager with the Radio Advertising Bureau, spoke to guests about why radio remains an important and relevant part of the media landscape. And, as someone who still loves working on the airwaves, I don't agree with The Buggles – video has not killed the radio star!
You don't have to travel to the slopes of Sochi or any of the other ski resorts around the world to enjoy the atmosphere of the piste as, once again, The Merchant Hotel has opened the doors of its Ski Lodge. UTV invited clients along to sample Gluhwien and other apres ski delights before testing their skiing prowess on the video game without the fear of ending up in A&E.
