Through a unique partnership with large “parent” companies, PLATO creates a confidential and safe environment where SMEs can benefit from facilitated group learning, business counseling and support so that you acquire the skills necessary to help your business grow and prosper. It provides an environment for owner managers to learn from one another and share their experiences at a monthly meeting for 12 months – facilitated by large company Managers from Ericsson, Diageo, Microsoft, Pfizer etc.
PLATO encourages participants to share experiences and resources, to stimulate new ideas, and to support each other as they make strategic decisions that determine how their businesses will grow. It also provides access to training activities, business linkages, trade fairs and networking events.

Membership of the PLATO programme is open to companies in all areas of commercial activity.

Some companies are celebrating their seventeenth year of productive and active participation in the network! Membership of the local PLATO group gives access to the wider PLATO Ireland Network and the dynamic 9,000 member European PLATO Network.

The cost of the 12 month programme is 30 euro per meeting – 360 euros for 12 meetings. To be eligible for this programme you must be 2 years or more in business with 2 or more employees.
