Career path to Antrim Enterprise

After spending a decade in London, working with a range of businesses nationwide to refine sales strategies and marketing approaches, I made the decision to return to Belfast. Here, I dedicated my skills and energy to a role within a Chartered Accountants and Registered Auditors, enabling me to engage with business owners throughout the island of Ireland. Relocating to Antrim offered me the chance to further enhance my expertise in business advisory by joining the local enterprise agency.
