As part of the programme a local entrepreneur is invited to share their story and to advise pupils about how to ensure the Junior Entrepreneur Project is a success. Today, entrepreneur Donal Byrne of the Big Red Barn gave a presentation to the senior room with business advice such as goal setting, staying positive, surrounding yourself with positivity and keeping an eye on the solution rather than the problem. This advice will propel the pupils forward as they prepare to meet the Dragons with their group projects next week.
Donal has won many awards, most recently Bank of Ireland Startup Business Award. He has always given generously of his time and has been a Dragon for Cloonlyon NS JEP in previous years. We would like to wish Donal and The Big Red Barn continued success and thank him for supporting the Junior Entrepreneur.
