Growing your business during a recession

Come and celebrate European SME Week 2011 in Omagh Enterprise Company
as part of the Innovation Enterprise Initiative

Thursday 6th October 2011
2.00pm – 3.00pm
Philip Bain Co-Founder and Director of Shredbank

‘Growing your business during a recession’ is delivered by Philip Bain, Co-Founder and Director of Shredbank.  The seminar will focus on key areas that all businesses need to address in order to survive through difficult economic times. The seminar is highly interactive, informative and practical.  Philip Bain and his business partner James Carson established ShredBank just after the collapse of Northern Rock and the beginning of one of the deepest recessions since the 1930’s.  ShredBank entered a document shredding market dominated by well established multi-nationals and a deteriorating economic climate.  Despite this, under Philip’s commercial leadership ShredBank has become a fast growing multi-award winning company that has experienced high double digit growth year on year and disproved the notion that success in a recession is impossible.  Having recent won Entrepreneur of the Year 2010 and Young Businessperson of the Year 2011, we are delighted that Philip has agreed to share his thoughts and experiences on what it takes to start-up, grow and succeed in tough financial times. He will reflect on the importance of marketing, selling, innovation and having a business model that works.
John Simpson, Journalist and Chair of Judging Panel for Belfast Telegraph Awards, stated: “The judges were impressed particularly by a younger entrepreneur who has almost made a household name of his business: ShredBank”
