Welcome to a different way of networking – Every fourthTuesday morning.

Each month we explore business issues, reports and feature ethical businesses to help us find the best products and services. It is open to Rotarians and non Rotarians alike.  This week we hear from eRotarian Enda Young who runs a training and consultancy company based in Belfast which is also a charity.
