CIDO Means Business Podcast Episode 1 with Paul Trouton

Welcome to the very first ‘CIDO Means Business’ podcast. I am very excited to introduce this brand-new business podcast series to you in which high flying local entrepreneurs will be interviewed by me, Cara Dallat, Chief Executive of the CIDO Business Centre in Craigavon.

Throughout this series, we will examine in depth the many nuances involved with starting and running a business, hearing from local business owners who have been there, done it and grown successful businesses through determination, passion, innovation, and shear hard work.

We will hear about their journey to success and amongst all the stories and anecdotes, we will hopefully have a few laughs along the way and of course these highly successful entrepreneurs will have a plethora of advice and top tips for you if you are at the start of your own entrepreneurial journey or just struggling to develop or even sustain your own business.

So, sit back, relax, drive, do the dishes, go for a run…whatever you like while you listen to the ‘CIDO Means Business Podcast.’
