Vision for Small Business in Ireland - Focus Groups

The vision of the Small Firms Association is to make Ireland the most vibrant small business community in the world – supporting entrepreneurship, valuing small business and rewarding risk takers.

At the SFA Annual Lunch on 6 November, Chairman AJ Noonan announced that the SFA is launching a dialogue with and between members on how to make this vision a reality. Harnessing your ideas and experiences is key to mapping the way forward – both for the SFA and for the new Government, whatever its make-up.

We are organising a number of focus groups in the coming weeks to discuss the small business vision for the future of Ireland which we urge you to attend and let your voice be heard.

There are three focus groups being held in the SFA offices on:

  • Monday, 23 November from 9:30am - 11:00am
  • Monday, 23 November from 2:00pm - 3:30pm
  • Tuesday, 24 November from 11:30am - 1:00pm

Register to attend one of the events on our website

For those of you who cannot attend the focus groups in person, there will be an option to dial in via conference call. Please register for the event on our website and email Jennifer McCormack on to indicate that you need the conference call information.

We also welcome written submissions from members by email to Patricia Callan on The deadline for these submissions is Tuesday, 24 November.
