We want to help you with that #ulsterbankboost are hugely excited to be partnering with Causeway Enterprise and Causeway Chamber of Commerce to deliver this session on "entrepreneurship - planting the idea and watching your business grow". This session forms part of our "boost bites" tour which sees us travelling around Northern Ireland delivering growth initaitves that matter to you and your business. 

We will be joined by Karen Yates who is founder of Taylor Yates and managing partner at Zing, both located in Coleraine. Formerly Karen spent 15 years working in the textile industry as a senior commercial manager supplying £37million of product to Marks & Spencer. Karen manages Zing with her husband and together they have launched an innovative online marketing solution www.zingdp.com/pingpong and now have a diverse client base from multi-national companies to large SME’s across the UK and Ireland. Karen has been involved with Causeway Chamber for 15 years and has had many roles including the role of President. Karen has been working as a mentor through various organisations over the last number of years. In September 2017 she launched HONE Insights to shape the marketing strategy of her growing client base.

In addition we will joined by Michael Gray. As a "blow in" Michael has made Coleraine his home and now successfully runs a greetings card business in the area. After breaking into the greeting card industry as a sales rep at the age of nineteen he progressed to become a sales manager and then Director dealing with both independent shops, major high street chains and export customers from various countries including America and after many visits to New York knew the City very well. On September 11th 2001, as the second plane hit the town Michael understood that life can sadly be far to short, and that it was time to follow a long held dream of many years to open his own business

Both entrepreneurs have amazing stories to tell and even better advice on how to make that garden grow!
