Think Positive in Business with Bobby Kerr

Yesterday, Keith McManus from our business development team had the pleasure of meeting Bobby Kerr at a lunchtime enterprise meeting in the Docklands Innovation Park: Think Positive in Business.

Bobby Kerr is the Chairman of Insomnia Coffee, and is probably best know as a Dragon on the Irish version of Dragons’ Den. As a successful Dragon, he has made 10 investments over the first three seasons of the show. Along with his brother and his sister, Joe and Anne Barrett, he purchased Bang Café and reopened this popular restaurant in March 2010.

An excellent speaker, he explained during the meeting the key items required to create and manage a business. Two of these were the importance of “added value for the customers” and your “customer relationship”.

It was great to hear and meet such an important personality and get an insight into running a business. We certainly came away with lots of new ideas for our teams to implement. If you are interested in Bobby’s career, then visit his website.
